I am a clumsy oaf.
The postman knocked at the door
I ripped the cardboard box open
My excitement was mounting
I delved amongst the bubble wrap and other cushioning
I found some tea
I delved again and retrieved a newspaper wrapped and sellotaped up package
I pulled gently at the sellotape and nothing moved - so I pulled harder, the sellotape moved, the paper unwrapped and there was a nice monkey teapet
I delved deeper and found another newspaper wrapped package, I pulled at the sellotape, nothing, I yanked hard at the paper then sellotape
and pulled the end of a horn
off your beautiful Ox tea pet.
Still waiting to buy some Marine Weld and mend before I photo and display.
I should always remember that softly softly catchee monkey (or Ox)
And must keep scissors handy for when new wares arrive
