A couple were Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve and the whole place
was heaving, packed with other last minute shoppers
Walking through the shopping centre the surprised wife looked up from a
window display and noticed her husband was nowhere to be seen. She knew
they had lots still to do and she became very upset.
She rummaged in her handbag and found her mobile phoned then used it to
call her husband to ask him where he was.
The husband in a calm voice replied: "Darling, you remember the jewellery
shop we went into five years ago, where you fell in love with that diamond
necklace that we could not afford and I told you that one day I would get
it for you...?"
His wife's eyes filled with tears of emotion, she began to cry softly and
stifling a sob she whispered: “Yes, I remember that jewellery shop..."
"Well," he said, "I'm in the pub next to that."
