CUWAM: A visit from the Toilet Paper Fairy

Toilet Paper Fairy

The week that was pretty spectacular….for many reasons which I will list in this post.

But by far the most fabulous thing that happened during the week was a visit not from the Easter Bunny,Tooth Fairy or St Nick, but the ever elusive Toilet Paper Fairy, who was in da house at a chicken schnitzel restaurant in Darlinghurst on Wednesday night. Two friends and I were dining alfresco at Una’s, our colourful conversation perfectly matched by the evening parade of people out and about on the city streets.

After my second wine, I left my friends and headed to the ladies….There was a queue, but there are queues in most places in Sydney these days! When a cubicle became vacant, I maneuvered myself into the  allocated space.

‘ There is not toilet paper in there’, remarked the lady who had just exited the toilet.

‘ Nevermind’, I replied, as I threw caution to the wind and closed the toilet door behind me.

I reasoned that there was a queue, the other toilet ( there was only one other) was probably paperless as well, and what that hell, I could cope with this situation…plus I really wanted to rejoin my friends as soon as possible…my meal, all that chicken schnitzel goodness may have very well arrived whilst I pondered the question to ‘paper or not to paper’

And then she appeared, well just her hand, a few fingers really that had snuck  discretely under the cubicle door….’ Would you like some toilet paper?’

The toilet paper fairy….She had come just in the nick of time…My savouir…what a women!!

‘ Thanks, thanks so much’

‘ Don’t mention it, I know the feeling’

And with such kind words the fairy handed over enough paper for me, and the next 10 toilet patrons!! What a women!! So very thoughtful, so kind, so simple a gesture…

I quickly went about my business, I wanted to catch the toilet paper fairy out, I wanted to thank her face to face….Yet even as I raced to flush the toilet, I knew I would not see her again…I stepped out into an empty washroom

On re-entering the dining hall, I glanced around, hoping to have an instant connection with one of the restuarant patrons, but alas….it was not to be…I rejoined my friends, said nothing of my encounter and began the epic task of eating my sumo size schnitzel.

So miraculus was my encounter that I am left almost speachless / wordless infact…But the week that was had many hightlights, and I will list them in point form:

An evening with my wonderful friend Steph at the Opera House, Sydney to see the one and only, IOTA….Amazing…Do yourself a favour, and if you get the chance, see this man perform…Extrodinary, out of the ordinary, with a voice that soars….

  • Drinks in the Rocks, Sydney, with my brother, his fiance and comrades which included a Brazilian Docter….His explanation of the medical reason behind hiccups was insightful!
  • A catch up 5 years in the making with childhood friends Alex and Leah, and Una’s on Wednesday. Dinner, drinks and ice cream…Good company and conversation…What more could a girl want…Oh, and a visit from the toilet paper fairy!!
  • A Saturday that was mine, all mine, cuddles with Flora, a gym session in Kings Cross, an evening swim at Coogee Beach, pototoe scollps for dinner and summer tennis on tv
  • A birthday BBQ for my little brother, a devine meal in Shellharbour with our newly extended family ( thats what an engagement will do!!) Wonderful food, drinks, company and entertainment ( thanks to 2 year old  Maddix, you are cricket star in the making!!)
  • A sneak peak at my sleeping god daughter at 8pm on Sunday night. Ms Mae, soon to turn one…And her Mum and I are already is disagreement of the birthday cake…love it!!
