My all time favourite gift… Thing One excelled herself. My children can be really sweet, thoughtful and generous. Generally, they are annoying, argumentative and infuriating, so these flashes of niceness are especially sweet.
She bought me jelly sweets. I love jelly sweets. Cola bottles and jelly babies and wine gums… I love them all. So she used an old glass jar, and layered it with jelly sweets. She wrote her own labels and tied a ribbon on top. It was beautiful, and thoughtful and I love it.
Damn shame she used an old pasta sauce jar that still reeked and every single sweet tastes of garlic.
