Today the sun is shining and the last little clumps of snow are clinging bravely to their shady corners, the ice and snow on the road is now stripey with the mud peeking through, the frost
is twinkling on my little car and all seems well with the world.
It's Hubby's' final day at work this week (he works a four day week) and by tonight he'll be home for the weekend. The poor man has to get up each day at 5.30am so he can set off for work at 6.15, he has an hours drive down the icy, snowy roads of Oxfordshire to get to work and he doesn't get home each evening until 6.30pm, it's a long day!
We've been SO busy recently and both SO tired that I don't think we have been on top form, we are each others Best Friends as well as husband and wife, and sometimes you show your best friend your worst side and only put your best behaviour on for outsiders. Well this weekend it stops....Valentines Day is upon us and boy are we going to celebrate.
Hubby has asked me to buy my favourite foods for him to cook on Saturday......now what will I choose.....will he be impersonating Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein, Nigella Lawson (ha ha....that I would LOVE to see) or will he be making cheese butties for two? He has already purchased two bottles of lovely wine, so all I have to do is find the perfect food to accompany them......easy....ha ha. I will sally forth and raid the shelves of the supermarket and the local shops until I find the perfect feast.
We will have our love and our logs to keep us warm, and hopefully a feast for three (well I couldn't leave Jason out when he's worked so hard all week, but he'll have to fight hard for a glass of wine!!).
