Second Mother’s Day Gift

It's Mother's Day and the hub is on business trip (spent his last morning on Friday hanging out with Rockstar because it's especially weird for him to miss Rockstar Quality Time on weekends) so he did something he doesn't usually do - nod to consumerism.

So it was totally unexpected when I come back from walking the dog and the Rockstar is waving a Georg Jensen shopping bag about. Especially since I thought I already got my Mother's Day gift.

Oh, Baby
Oh, You Shouldn't Have
Oh! I'm Undone!
Flirt A Little...
Flirt A Bit More...
Take It Off! Take It All Off!

Mystery Revealed: Georg Jensen Bangle Watch
There was a card too...

Georg Jensen Bangle Watch was one of the biggest things I lusted after fresh out of university... I always thought they make the coolest "work accessories" because they have the whole "liquid metal" thing going, so sleek...

When I felt I could afford to buy it about 3 years later however, serious watch-collecting colleagues snorted, "If you wanted a real watch for your budget you should get a Tag (Heuer). Bulgari, Chopard, Georg Jensen, these are all jewelry names."

(Not that that stopped makers of said remarks from buying them, just they also bought the "real" watches and considered watch purchases of jewelry labels more frivolous...)

I went with a Tag. It's still my everyday watch. They really do make good watches. But label be damned, I happen to like the watches by the jewelry brands. And bangle watch... a real trip down memory lane. I never bought it, it was too guilty a pleasure...

Other than that It's Old Tee Day for us... Which is just what we like to lounge around in when Kings isn't home...

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.
