Love is in the air…

Thanks to the lovely people at Interflora who sent me this exquisite example of one of their many stunning Valentines gifts.

 Aren’t they Gorgeous?!!

I can’t tell you how much they really put a smile on my face!

 I have been using Interflora for years as personally i feel there is nothing nicer than receiving a surprise luxury bunch of flowers through the post. 

My in-laws live 4 hours away and we don’t get down as much as we’d like these days, so on any birthdays or special occasions i always go on line and book the nicest flowers/plants/gifts/wine for them and have it delivered on their special day. I think its just a lovely way of showing someone that you are thinking of them.

I’ll never forget the excitement in the office when a a delivery man would walk in with a bouquet, us girls would all secretly hold our breathe, cross our fingers and hope that the name he read out on that little pretty card would be ours.

 This year Valentines day may not be top of my agenda but it doesn’t stop me from appreciating the romance and the wonderful air of love that surrounds this day. What can i say i am a big softy old romantic at heart!

I know some people don’t buy in to it, but the way i see it, if i can dedicate a day to loving my husband and showing him that, then surely it can’t be a bad thing! Maybe we should have more Valentines days in a year haha!

Are you treating anyone this valentines?

I just wanted to say a quick thank you too all who commented on my last post, i can not even begin to tell you how your words were so uplifting and the amount of tears i shed reading each and every one. You have all brought such wonderful words in to my life that makes me think that i will get through this. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, if i could send you all a big bunch of flowers i totally would!!!

So, Onwards and up-awards,right? xxxxx

    Absolutely gorgeous pics!
    I have just read your other blog post and am feeling really sad. I am so very sorry to hear that both you and your hubby are having such a rough time. I cannot begin to imagine how you must be feeling after working so hard together for all those years to now be facing such difficult times ahead. Things will be tough but you will get through it because you have to and when you do come out the other side there will be brighter days and new opportunities to focus on. Much love to you all.

    Those flowers are gorgeous, you are definitely deserving of these right now. Such pretty detail with the gems.
