A wonderful surprise!

Filed under: emotions, memories — Tags: , , — yaadayaada @ 7:48 pm

Boo suggested I get the chairs that S had recently posted in her blog as our anniversary present. I checked out the chairs online and liked it. Found the price from S and was wondering whether I should get them. Then, in the evening, I sent a mail to S asking her if the chairs were available and she promptly replied stating that the chairs were sold to some body else. I was a little disappointed. But what to do, I was not quick enough.

Then next day, I come back from work to hear Chula and Meija of utbt, shrieking excitedly, “Surprise! Here is a gift from Chula, Meija, Ashu and Antu!”. For a split second, I couldn’t believe my eyes and was wondering how utbt found the same chair I was looking for, before my slow brain realized the conspiracy between S, boo and utbt to suprise me. Also kind S had sent a wonderful anniversary gift along with the chairs that she sold to Boo and utbt. Also she was kind enough to drive half way to meet utbt to deliver the chairs. Boo was on the phone conspiring with utbt. utbt had added her special tough with cute cushions for the chair.

Thanks Boo and utbt for the wonderful anniversary present (I know it is also a present for yourself since you both got tired of the beach chair I had in the family room and you guys wanted a comfy chair to sit!). Thanks S for playing along with the surprise and driving half way to deliver. Also thanks for the fragrant gift you had sent! All in all, a wonderful surprise!

  11. It was fun! I emailing you, UTBT emailing. Boo didnt email me till later…

    I am so glad that they went to such a lovely house.

    PS: These are a replica of the Barcelona chairs to the poster above. A very good one, I must say. They are made by a CA based company called Sitcom.
