“I’ve got a surprise for you,” I tell Seb when he calls today.
“Oooohhhh what is it my lovely?” Seb says.
“Not telling,” I say. “It’s a good thing that am going to make for you. If can pull it off, you’ll be impressed and…”
“How exciting,” Seb says, sounding animated. “What’s in it?”
“Not telling,” I say. “Stop asking about it. Want it to be a surprise and…”
“Oh, OK,” Seb says, sounding disappointed.
“So how is it?” I say. Seb’s gone to visit a chum.
“It’s alright,” Seb says.
“What time do you think you’ll be here tomorrow?” I say. “Meeting Mr Fluffypants at midday and…”
“Won’t be setting off till later,” Seb says. “Because of…”
“Who you are as a person,” I say.
“Huh?” He says.
“A quote I saw,” I say. “Can’t wait to see you tomorrow darling and for you to meet Mr Fluffypants.”
This is what am attempting to make for him:
Have to go for a pre-operation Last Supper with my chums. The taxi is waiting.

Happy Saturday everyone!
