A lot like love - just a little bit late.....


'When Jane Louise went upstairs she saw that Teddy had brought up the bags and also that he had turned down the bed-covers. Teddy was not generally expressive, and when he was, Jane Louise felt like a person in a fairy tale whose heart had been pierced by a rose thorn.'

A Big Storm Knocked It Over by Laurie Colwin

Just some words I read earlier this week and they struck me as appropriate for St Valentines. We should recognise love all through the year shouldn't we? Have a lovely weekend everyone. xx

  3. Although we do celebrate valentine's day in our household, we know it's the little loving gestures throughout the year that really count. The back rubs, cups of tea made, hugs, conversation, listening, small no-reason gifts - they are the real things.
