Mr Nylon gets a gift!

Bri Nylon is a very happy chappy!
Look at the fabulous gift he received in the mail last week - a lawn mower!
Sent to him especially, all the way from America by Kim Saulter.

Bri thought he'd try out the new mower in the garden.
"Sacre Bleu!", he exclaims (he still thinks he's at the Petite Maison) as he almost runs over a skipping rope.
"Those %&$# kids, can't they put anything away...do I have to do EVERYTHING myself around here!"

Meanwhile Silky Nylon is admiring the latest renovations to her kitchen.

Newly painted rustic style kitchen cupboards, tiled splashback and butlers sink.
All specially handcrafted by the Nylon's personal decorater.
I know, there's still no oven!

While Mr Nylon is out of the house Mrs Nylon seizes the opportunity to enjoy a little late afternoon treat (beautifully made by Kim).

'Oh, yes, this is the life', she thinks as she enjoys a little peace and solitude, 'if it keeps him out of the house that mower might just be the best thing Bri has ever been given!'

Thank you Kim!

    And of course the story! Mr Nylons "Sacre Bleu! was so funny, but don't tell Mr Nylon that I thought so, perhaps it will hurt his pride :-)
