It’s ‘Storytelling Sunday’ over at ‘From High In The Sky’ & once again I’m at home recuperating, so I’m able to join in!! Do pop over & check out some of the others stories on offer too, I know you won’t be disappointed!!
My story is one you may recognise if you’ve been visiting my blog since the beginning, but it’s a story that both my boys refer to on a regular basis, so I think I’ll share it again!!
We have a number of ‘House Rules’ in our family, including the rule that when the boys have a pack of Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles, they save all of the black ones for Dad. It’s just one of those things that has always been & both boys have always, without question, dutifully put aside the sweets for Dad, for when he gets home!
Considering that they were quite small at the time, the boys took it all in good spirits & could not work out how this could possibly happen…how could every sweet in both packs be black??!!! It was just so funny to see the disbelief on their faces & listen to them trying to rationalise it all!!
We didn’t let them suffer for long & owned up to being wicked parents…& as it was now past midday, the laugh was on us & they got to keep all the sweets anyway…well except for maybe just one or two!!
As I said earlier, it’s a tale that’s reminisced every time one or other chooses a pack of Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles…”Hey Mum, do you remember when you & Dad….”
I do hope you came unscathed through April Fools Day morning! I’m still sleeping for England & didn’t get up until 10.45am, so that minimised the risk for me today!!
Thanks for stopping by & do come back soon!
