Wax Surprise

On Sunday night Terry offered to run me a bath. Well, of course I agreed, but little did I know that Terry was about to spring the WAX SURPRISE – duh duh DUH!


Because I am stupid, it took me a few minutes (and, OK, then a few more…) to work out that the “wax” of the name came from the candles he had lit in the bathroom.  But really, who cares about candles when there’s a big ol’ gift-wrapped box sitting right in front of them?

Underneath the wrapping, Lush’s ‘You’re a Star’ gift box:


So-called because it contains products used by the “stars”, apparently. And now by me too, yipee!

Inside the bath, though, an even more exciting surprise awaited:


DUCKS!  Because, seriously, who doesn’t love ducks?

    We should look into having Terry conduct some hubby training classes! He's a keeper.

    I love Lush, but I think those ducks are my favourite part of this surprise.

    I love the gift box, candles and ducks! Seriously, what a great gift! I would totally need some sort of assortment to try out first since- GASP! I have never used Lush products before. Very cool gift, indeed.

    Ah, so cute. If Terry does start doing hubby training, I'd like to sign mine up for a week's residential course.

    I'm loving Terry! It would make me rethink my 'single forever' stance if there were more guys like him out there!

    Woah. I looked up that box online and it said it costs $600 dollars. Holy fucking shit.

      um, not sure where you've read that, but it's wrong.

    How good is your hubby at pressies.

    You can't ever dread your birthday if you had someone like that organising surprises like that for you.

    Lucky I can’t think of a colour beginning with F, or can I?

    Fuchsia, yes fuchsia that’s a kind of pinky colour!

    So what’s the pink one called?

    Please don't say Puck, takes the fun out of my research

    • Reply March 25, 2009


      You guessed correctly, Puck is his/her name :P

    So the yellow one is yuck? Thats a bit mean! and how do you pronounce Ouck?

    Great presents, I am very jealous of the lushie bath:)

    • Reply March 26, 2009


      The two yellow ones are called Chin and Chang, and the orange one (we decided was tangerine) is called Tuck :)

    Terry, would you consider publishing a book on giving presents to wives? As a leading expert in this field you could do a lot of good for us girls married to clueless husbands. Please consider it. Or at least the hubby classes.
