When my boyfriend and I were watching a film together, he fell asleep and started talking about edible sheep in his sleep. From that moment on it became a private joke between the two of us.
A few months after this happened; he turned up at my house holding a biscuit tin. I asked him what was in it, and he just grinned and asked how many sheep I wanted (that was what he had been saying in his sleep).
He then opened the tin to show me a dozen or so gingerbread sheep cookies! Gingerbread is my favorite food and it turned out he had spent days looking up recipes and practicing baking to make me a wonderful surprise!
It was a shame to have to eat them!
