Just a quiet night in for the two of us tonight with a home cooked meal of Mediterranean Chicken (recipe to follow) and a nice bottle of wine with some relaxing music in the background. John bought me these lovely tulips - I say John but actually it was me who spotted them in Aldi's on Monday and as I love tulips suggested that if he were to buy me some flowers (cheeky I know) he bought them there as opposed to getting me some on the day and paying a small fortune for them. He happily put them in the trolley and off we went. Romantic or what? I already knew though what he had planned giving me as a present so the flowers were a bonus.
I've had a very hectic couple of weeks for one reason or another and am only just getting around to catching up with all your posts - I am getting there but please bear with me.
I must just show you some lovely parcels I've received recently. Firstly I was delighted to win these lovely magazines in a giveaway organised by Suzy a few weeks ago which is going to spur me on to start a crochet project that I have in mind.Take a look at her lovely website here rusticvintagecountry.blogspot.co.uk Thank you so much Suzy they're great.
Then I received this parcel from Val a dear blogging friend at Val's alentejo all the way from Portugal.
Val knows that I am collecting doilies and tray cloths and sent me these - they are lovely
and a gorgeous tea towel from Portugal embellished with an olive tree - Val
has her own olive farm and this is a lovely memento
and last but not least these lovely Coffee napkins and flavoured tea bags
Such a kind gesture from someone I've never met - thank you so much Val. Pop along to her lovely website and catch up with her life in Portugal.
Oh I do love blogging - it's such a great way of sharing common interests with like-minded friends.
Have a great Valentine's evening and see you soon
