LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED


Me and my lovely man have been together 30 odd years (some of them very odd indeed!) and I consider myself a fortunate woman that we are both still just as dotty about each other as we ever were. Now after all this time we don't go in for a whole lot of romantic gestures, so on February 14th I like to make a particular effort to say the things we really should be saying more often ... so I made him this little book.


The pages are about "you" "me" and "us" but I'm not sharing the things I wrote on the tags which tuck into the end of each page. They might reveal what a big softie I really am .... especially when it comes to him. Having raised three daughters who all left home, we ended up with widowed mother in law coming to live with us 12 years ago, and now one of our girls has come back home for a year or so. I love them all dearly but SO look forward to the day when (finally) it is just the two of us again ... after thirty plus years!! I can dream ...

Such a lovely gift Rosie. Congrats on being still dotty on each other. MOre marriages should last as long and would if the youngun's would stop giving up or wait longer to get to know each other before taking the plunge. HOpe you had a great Valentine's day. I spent my weekend sick and hubby took good care of me. I went to the doctor yesterday and have a baf case of bronchitis and having brochial asthma this is not a good thing at all. Had an x-ray, lab work and five meds to buy. Got them all for under a 100.00. Thank God I have insurance or the bill would have been over 300.00. NOw to rest and get my breathing better back and stop the hacking cough before Thursday (back to work).
Hope you are feeling well.
