I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday. The beautiful boy received his first Valentine! First he thought it must be Grandma, but we were sure it wasn't Grandma's writing and he was sure it wasn't mummy's writing... "Oh no, your writing is far more messy than this"... so the mystery sweetheart remains a secret .... just as it should be!
But whoever it was, they delighted him with his favourite forbidden treats! And poor daddy?
Well, all he got were these yeuchy Raspberry truffles...!
Breakfast soon overtook any thoughts of love and chocolates! We had a long day out planned so a big breakfast was on the table!
And what did mummy get? Well, for one thing this wonderful red parcel. We found it in the wood-shed. Our postie had signed for it himself, perhaps to avoid knocking on the door and asking for hubby to sign for it! That would have been funny!
Thrifty Mrs kindly arranged a valentine swap and my swap partner was lovely Victoria over at Vintage Tea! Just look at all this wonderfulness! So many hearty packages to unwrap!
A wonderful selection of baking goodies, a very romantic American magazine, tissues and sweeties..... so many treats! Thank-you Victoria. I hope you enjoyed your parcel too.
And those yummy pink marshmallows....
... well we toasted those whilst playing Lotto this afternoon! Perfect Sunday snacks!
And can you guess what we're doing on the first day of half term? Want a clue?
These are bubbling away in the Aga overnight tonight and I'll be adding dark brown sugar and Scotch whiskey tomorrow! Yum! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. t.x
