J'ai une affaire! - { I'm having an affair! }




It all started innocently enough. Sideways glances whilst out shopping in the city...shy smiles across a crowded shop, hesitantly moving just that little bit closer. Before I knew it, I was ogling every square inch of his perfectly formed body, caressing his smooth skin and longing for him to come home with me! Yes, my friends, I fell in love with a KitchenAid Mixer. Not just any old mixer...a PINK one!


One has been brought up to believe that a man should never buy presents for his wife of the domestic nature i.e. vacuum cleaners...no, no, no!, electric frypans....eeeek!, irons....Mon Dieu!! so when hubby presented me with such a present for Mothers' Day (I know...this post is a wee bit late!) I thought every feminist fibre of my being would revolt. But when I tore open the wrapping to behold "the new man in my life" I melted.



I hadn't even given one hint as it was one of those items you lust after but know you'll never own. Perhaps he'd heard me talk of it, or seen my flirtatious looks in the homewares shops...or perhaps he is just the most amazing hubby! I know he'll benefit well from this new liaison....lemon meringue pies, macarons and the like but I like to think that he bought it just because he loves me! And you know what.....I simply adore "the first man in my life" with all that I have and would live in a cardboard box with him if it made him smile. I love you my Darren! Mwah, mwah, mwah!

oh steph i love it - the affair, the kitchen aid, the gift, the everything! It's just beautiful! I am having a very similar affair with my coffee machine (also purchased by my sweet hubby) - yes, who said women should not get domestic appliances - huh, what do they know?? Enjoy..;-)

What a very thoughtful hubby you have! LOVE it/him. I would have been lusting in the kitchen shop too!

Jennie said...

Oh Steph - I totally know where you are coming from here!

I have one in the peppermint green. He has pride of place in our kitchen. I probably shouldn't tell you this, but there are a few attachments that make him even more versatile too!!

And now...I am lusting after your other love. What a sordid place this blogging world has become! Lisa x

That's fantastic. My husband bought me the orange one (he kept asking, are you sure you want orange?) You'll love it!

Wendy said...

That is one smart hubby! Enjoy your Kitchenaid---mine is the 2nd thing I'd grab in a fire (after the kids and husband, of course, which are collectively number 1.) ;)

It's a difficult gift to hide, or pretend it's anything else as they're so HEAVY!! I love mine, it's almost 7 & red, still makes me smile every time i look it, plus it's sisters . . . the blender, 4 slice toaster & cousins in the cupboards, our pots & pans. Love Posie

Catherine said...
