It's The Thought That Counts

Over the Easter holidays my Mum, Dad and Tara went to Spain for two weeks (nice for some ey!). Tara wanted a present for when she returned home (cheeky monkey) I think she might have asked as a joke but was secretly hoping I'd get her something. 

I thought I would get her something small, but the days just flew by and I kept forgetting. When it came to the day they were coming home I decided to do something for her rather than give her a present. I got all her teddies I could find, plus some of Osian's and sat them all on the stairs, with a sign saying 'Welcome home, we missed you'

She was shocked when she walked through the door, she seemed very happy with her little surprise. Shouting to Mum and Dad 'Look what Trina did!' Which goes to show it's the thought that counts no the amount of money spent. It's not even something that took a lot of time and effort but it made me feel good to see her so happy with something I put a little thought into doing.

 Sorry the pictures not very clear - I had just taken it quickly on my phone. You can just about make out the smile on Tara's face at the top of the stairs.
