Spooked me a bit

When we went out for Len's Birthday meal the other evening, word had travelled that it was a 'special day' to the local restaurant we really love - just a few minutes stroll from the hotel here. Talk about not having any secrets :)

We were led to a lovely candlelit table, overlooking the sea and immediately I could smell jasmine. The tablecloth had been scattered with jasmine flowers :)

But then came the really spooky part, one of the waiters appeared with a frangipani flower, tucked it in my hair and said 'Madam should wear a flower in her hair'. Had he been peeking at this blog? Did he know that my profile picture has been the subject of a few comments?

NOPE 'cos no-one here knows about the blog - it was pure intuition/coincidence or just good PR. I was too stunned to take a piccie of the lovely table but Len did whip out his camera and take this photo:
Sometimes things that happen do leave me with the shivers - and this was one such time :)

It's 'write up the Playground day' here and the gates re-open at midnight UK time :)

Wonderful photo, Di. Love the dress. I bought myself one like that a couple of years ago. A flower in the hair is the perfect accessory x

Lovely photo - the evening sounds wonderful. Jasmine covered table sounds lovely but my OH wouldn't have liked it - he can't stand the smell of jasmine or lilies!

Knowing where you are, I thought there might be an orchid or two in your hair this week, but this suits you just as well. Kate x

Hello there Flower Girl. Great picture Di. I'm so pleased to hear you're getting the luxury treatment out there. Good service and thoughtfulness is sadly lacking over here.

Well isn't that strange I had a call from Thailand, some guy wittering on did I know it was Len's birthday that day. I said send me the tickets and I'll be over. It certainly gets around.
Fabulous photo, love the flower.

Well, spooky or not, this is a lovely picture of you all glammed up in your evening makeup, the tropic flower in your hair, and your gorgeous new dress. TFS & big hugs. Hope Len's birthday was just as wonderful as it appeared from the photo with you all smiles. Hugs

You look gorgeous, Di, and so happy too - your eyes are positively shining. And all it took was a flower for Len to whip out his camera and capture the moment ... it needs to be scrapped :)) Hugs, Elizabeth
