During the school holidays, the girls and I are inspired to do something extra special for the significant other in our lives. In July we made the Moroccan Restaurant for him downstairs, and this time we spent a good part of a day making 40 Love Notes.
Our super secret plan was to go over to his house and hide them all over, some in easy places to he'd find them right away and some really really hard so he'd find them continually for a long time.
The four of us were sooo excited. Melinda, Kjristi, Sofie and myself all jumped into the car with 39 cards (the 40th I saved back and stole his car keys and hid it on his car seat while he was over for dinner thanking him for being cool about melinda going to Fiji with me).
We decided to call him along the way to make sure he wasn't home or on his way home. I decided it might be a good idea to have a reason we were in his house . .just in case . . . so I offered to move his laundry along.
Boy did we race around!! We only had 15 minutes before I had to go pick up daughter #3 AND now I had to do the laundry!! We hid them in some good spots. The girls were fantastic.
So, he found the one on his seat right away of course when he left my house late that night. (this was the night before Melinda and I left for Fiji). He thought that was nice and drove off. Then he got home and found one in his washing machine, then another in the bathroom, and then caught onto our game . . . .
He texted me about 40 minutes later and told me he'd found them all - he'd found 11. He still doesn't know how many there are, but I think to date he's found about 20 or so.
It was a small thing really, but it was a fun, bonding activity for my girls and myself. And I hope Robert feels special and thought of and cherished. And I also hope that he finds one just right when he needs one.
xxxx Love you Rob
