Bushcrafter’s gifts

Flint’s mum came for dinner last night. She’s a very thoughtful guest and always brings a little something; a bottle of wine, some flowers, something she baked etc. 

Last night was no exception and she arrived with a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers which I displayed in the lounge window – rooms feel so much better with a fresh display 🙂 


We went for a walk around the village after a nice dinner that Flint cooked in his hay box. We then went to the pub for dessert because I couldn’t be bothered to sort anything – lazy I know! 

Leaving the pub about 9pm we saw this lovely view of the sunset and it was a great end to a day off together. 


We walked home and Flint’s mum remembered a little ‘gift’ in the car. Ooo that’s exciting! 

Out she gets a dead garden snake that she found on her doorstep that morning. I’m… Well not that interested to be honest so I go upstairs to get in my pjs and leave them discussing this snake. 


I can hear them talking about what it is and why it was on her doorstep and then they are doing that typically British thing of ‘well you have it if you would like it’ ‘oh no, not if you want it’ until eventually Flint accepts the gift happily 🙂 funny how they didn’t consider asking me if I would like it… Strange that!! 

Flint’s mum lives quite nearby so we see her regularly. I am glad someone understands Flint but I am wondering what the next ‘gift’ will be!! X
