Plotting and planning
21 January 2010 17:10:05
It never ceases to amaze me as to how a certain person in this house does not notice certain things, such as floors in need of a sweep! However, buy a new indoor plant and it is spotted immediately. I have a number of plants which are on top of the kitchen units but they can't stay there because they are not getting enough light. The plan is to pot them all together in one large pot and put it on the step of the stairs which has the bend on it and therefore, has the space to accommodate them. However, in order to do this, I have to adopt a 4 plan strategy.
Step 1: Purchase a mobile plant stand in Lidl (for €4.99) so the container will not be sitting on the carpet and they can be moved up out of the way when the stairs is being hoovered.
Step 2: Strategically place the plant stand without any plants on it before he arrives home from work.
Step 3: When it is noticed and commented upon, just brush it off as if it just landed there from outer space and that I certainly had no hand, act nor part in its arrival to that very spot.
Step 4: In about a month's time, pot up the container, place it on the stand and walk away. If a further comment is received at that point, the answer is very simple - the plant stand had been there for AGES.
Step 1 and 2 have been implemented today.
