179..... She dressed, and set the table
properly. The best crystal, the silver and of course his favourite drink and
her special lemonade. Yes, everything was perfect. She wondered what he
would be wearing. .something silky maybe, a smart suit, bow tie...oh she
could not wait till he came down.
180...... What she had forgotten, was that
Raffles was not a fashion Guru...he always chose comfort, comfort, comfort..
but this time he had excelled himself,. he had certainly got comfort and
style all in one. Now THAT Raffles, is some Dressing gown! Ruffles hugged her
sweetheart and remembered the first day she had seen him. How handsome he
still was, what a lucky little bear she was and what a busy year it had
181..... They sat at the table together, He was
very impressed with the beautiful table. He was not so impressed by the
menu, though..( Miss Ruffles could not get away from the fact that they were
still only on the fourth day of the DETOX plan ) so it was Cabbage stew and
Broccoli with Lentil mousse cooked in her favourite "bear" mould, Oh
Ruffles,.. chocolate is the order of the day on Valentines.. not LENTILS???
182..... She served the Broccoli to the rather
reluctant Raffles ( he was worried what all this veg would do to his
constitution ..but having looked at his very dry skin.. knew that Ruffle was
as always , well meaning.
