On Saturday, I went to the grocery store with my mother-in-law while visiting her.
We were being a bit silly at the checkout as I was insisting on paying for her groceries and kept taking her groceries and putting them with mine. I don't think the check-out girl quite knew how to take us but just as we were leaving I pulled out a little bag of lollies I had wrapped and keep in my handbag and a smile card and left it with her.
Her look was priceless, mouth wide opened she was in shock and finally said "Are these for me?"
I just smiled, said "Yes" and dragged my mother-in-law out the door, who was equally shocked. It makes me smile now thinking about it - two for the price of one!!
