Sherlock ate this today:
Yes, that's glitter on it. Lots of multi-colour glitter.
It was actually so nice we bought one... he's been staring at it longingly ever since.
He made John and I these amazing bracelets this afternoon. I was practicing guitar, John was reading up something about FME-ing. He was in his room, being quiet... and yeah, he'd made string bracelets, each with things on them that are relevant to us. Mine's got a piece of lego, a nut, a guitar pick, a little stone, a little leather tag from something, one of my spare earrings, one of the nozzles for icing we never use because we don't like the shape - it's just amazing. He's put so much thought into making them, and all because we talked about what exchanging rings meant to us, and he decided he wanted in on a similar idea.
John's pretty much decided he'll go on the FME course on the 11th - so a week of just me and Sherlock! It's...daunting. And exciting. And I know we'll both miss John like mad.
And then John comes home the same evening as Mycroft gets home for half term, so it'll go from just two of us to a full house in one night. I hope it'll make it a bit easier for Sherlock, knowing he has all that to look forward to once he's put up with me for the week. Plus I know John will miss him too, so it's nice they'll have the week to have time together, and with Mycroft, too!
