My sincerest, most heartfelt thanks to all the beautiful bloggy friends who left comments or sent emails of love and support on my last post. It never ceases to amaze me how many precious souls are out there and I'm so touched to receive such kind words, when I've really needed them the most. The past couple of days have been pretty rough, but I'm confident that things will get better, the only way is up, as they say.
Whilst last Tuesday was a Valentine's Day to forget, there were two memorable moments that most definitely rate a mention. I will remember them always. First thing Tuesday morning, my postie delivered an express post parcel, containing the most exquisite string of coloured, crochet, bunting hearts. I won them over at this gorgeous lady's place and my word do I feel lucky to be the owner of them now. They're truly perfect and were the absolute nicest way to start a day... thank you again gorgeous lady.
On Tuesday afternoon, I was a little shell shocked, emotional and numb, to say the least. Angus' preschool were holding a 'meet and greet' for all the parents and children to get to know one another better. It was a wonderful idea and Angus was looking so forward to the afternoon tea/party. My job was to bring along the fairy bread and I decided to use the heart cookie cutters and go with the Valentine's theme for the kiddies. Well, they were a hit and a half. Two plates gone in under five minutes. Angus devouring his weight in them himself. Through my puffy sunglass covered eyes, all I could see was the look of utter appreciation on Angus' sweet face. He still mentions that afternoon tea and those "fairy bread hearts Mama brought to preschool". Certainly a day of mixed emotions.
