Happy Valentine’s Day to all of my beautiful readers! I hope you have been well and truly spoiled today – either by a significant other or by yourself.
I’ve never really observed a Hallmark Valentine’s Day but when I was growing up my Mum would always take the day to send us a card telling my sister and I how special we are and how much she loves us.
It seems some things never change – she sent this little love token and flowery card a few days ago.
The little bar of chocolates wasn’t the only sweet I received in the post – the lovely people at Swizzels-Matlow also sent me a selection of their latest sweets to try.
Their latest range features classics like the Double Lollies, Refreshers and Love Hearts in a squashy form! I must admit it is odd to have the traditional tastes in different textures but they were good! Plus, chewy sweets always seem to last longer for me.
I dug into the Love Hearts straight away in honour of the occasion. Did you used to read the messages when you were younger? James said he didn’t but I always checked out what was on the sweet before I ate it!
I carried on the homemade present theme by crafting James a card.
James’s little stack of present from me – and a bag of sweets for my sweet tucked in the middle.
One of the highlights of my day? Having a hug from a very special and sleepy little man.
Can you see his little hand resting on mine? Gets me every time.
I was treated by James with some lovely presents, including another box of these incredible truffles! Can’t wait to dig in tonight.
Hope you had a wonderful day!
