Today's Leap Day, the traditional day when women can propose marriage to their men. I didn't do that, but we did get married in a Leap Year so since then NAH and I have a running joke where I propose to him every Leap Day and he flatly refuses because he's a 'happily married man'. It's a shared joke which has me giggling and hugging to myself for days beforehand and it brings us closer together on the day.
Our cosiness was interrupted this morning by the arrival of the local florist's van and the proffering of the pictured Phalaenopsis to NAH. His concern I might have a secret admirer soon turned to relief when I showed him the accompanying message:
Dear VP, Sorry we couldn't get your original plant but hope you enjoy the orchid.
Love the Flower Council of Holland (@meandmyplants).
My thanks to Victoria for her quick wit on Twitter this morning :)
You can see which of 30 houseplants is your perfect partner and have the chance to win a copy of a rather fun and funky book on how to look after them by visiting the Me and My Plant website.
Oh and if you haven't heard The Unbelievable Truth, then you've just missed one of Radio 4's comedy gems.
