Happy Valentine's Day!

OK, so I'm a bit late in the day saying it, but I hope you had a good day (and the night is still young...) Here are the flowers that my husband - David - bought for me, in a jug that he bought last year. Very romantic! He's actually very good on flowers - buys me some every week and has done since we were first married (even when we're on holiday!). So despite the fact that he just doesn't understand the yarn business, he's alright in some respects!

For my part in the romance stakes, I made food. Chocolate mousse (and no, I still haven't eaten any chocolate, left this well alone and didn't even lick the bowl out!) and Valentine biscuits. I iced things like 'Love You', 'Hot Stuff' and 'Lover Boy' on them. David picked one and said 'Oh I'll have the one with 'Spaghetti' on.' Put your glasses on dear, it says 'Sweetiepie'. Men!

And a Valentine Present arrived for Vera today. She had read Monkee Maker's blog and knew it was coming and was a little scared to say the least. Brave Bartholomew came to rescue her though and took charge.

Those children just love ripping the paper off - be they people children or rabbit children!

And look who's here. Our very own muffin (cunningly disguised as a mushroom!) Think I'll call him Marvin. What do you think?

And I've been thoroughly chastised about linking to Monkee Makers very funny raffle draw. Don't go and see it. You won't like it at all. It really isn't funny. There's some strange woman shouting instructions in the back ground and a rather gorgeous man doing some bongoing. No, if you're feeling sad, this is not the thing to cheer you up. Go and watch the News instead.

That cooking looks delish! How did you not even taste it???? Lovely to see Vera and Bartholemew opening their parcel! And I really laughed at the non-linkage!

P.S. By the way, my easter swap is now open!!!!

OI YOU!! I thought we were never going to mention "that" again!

I'll have to let you off though and the most delicious hedgehog & malteser slab dropped onto my doormat today - thank you so much! .... I notice how you're not eating chocolate and yet you're force feeding some of us into it .... force away, Michaela, force away.

Gorgeous valentines goodies, Mrs R, and flowers every week? How romantic!


ps. Glad to see that Marvin the Mush-in (.... Muff-room?) arrived safely ....
