Me : What does your mum want for her birthday?
Niece : The list says … six wine glasses WITH A THIN RIM, Dara O’Brien tickets, set of mixing bowls, vouchers for Azendi …
Me : I’ll get the mixing bowls
Niece : OK
Two weeks later and three days until My Sister’s birthday …
Me : So, what are you getting your Mum for her birthday?
Niece : Mixing bowls, I still need to get them. What are you getting her?
Me : I said I AM getting them. Are you getting them now?
Niece : Yeah, after school
Swears to self and cancels order for beautiful mixing bowls …
Me : Sheesh, so what is left for me to get her?
Niece : She still needs 6 wine glasses WITH A THIN RIM
Peruses internet for 6 wine glasses with thin effing rim. Realises pretty quickly that there are none and will have to go to an actual shop to measure rim of wine glasses. Swears again.
An hour later …
Niece : [Nephew] is getting her a bike!
Me : WTF!? Does she even want a bike?
Niece : I don’t know
So, happy birthday to my Big Little Sister
May you get some things you want, some things you didn’t even know you wanted … and 6 effing wine glasses WITH A THIN RIM.
Love from Little Long Sister x
