I will tell you a story about me when I was young –  it was Valentines day and I told my friend that I fancied this person lots and I wanted to get him a card, so I did. I was so exited to see the response from this man, but what I didn’t know is that she sent him a card herself! Did I put that idea in her head?  I only found out after 2 years when my man confessed! Yes, I got him in the end and I forgave my friend….. we were only young after all. He is now my husband of 33 years as I write this!

I am very proud to be married this wonderful man –  happy Valentines day Darling, these biscuits are for you. x
