The flowers yesterday really brightened up the room; they are doing the same today.
Darling Richie made my day getting the mini daffodils.
They are a flower that I am very fond of, love seeing daffs in March; they are for me the personification of spring.
He put the spring flowers and the lavender by the window in the front room so they could catch the morning sun.
That was successful, even though there was not much sun when Richie opened the curtains at this morning.
There was a glimmer which was the first signs of the daffodils in the trough starting to bloom.
Think the daffodils should be flowering by Wednesday next week which will be charming for Easter weekend.
That reminds me of Easter two years ago, when I wanted an Easter egg, but kept saying to Richie ‘ach don’t worry about Easter egg as a bar is much better value’.
What I did not realise was that I kept telling Richie this and he quickly came to the conclusion that I desperately wanted an Easter egg.
If I had said it just the once, Richie may have believed, but after he heard me say this more than 5 times, he thought it was abit of a giveaway.
So he got one, a Green and Black’s egg which was very pretty and looked good and tasted even better.
What I especially like is the fact the chocolate is fair-trade which means workers and not slaves.
Before I take a bite into a chocolate bar, I do stop to think about who grew the cacao that made my chocolate bar.
If it is not Fair Trade chocolate then it is possibly one of the more than 15,000 child slaves who work on cacao farms in West Africa.
Does that chocolate still taste good? No it won’t, certainly not for me, so I will not buy it.
Lucky for me there is a whole food shop 5 minutes away from our apartment so I can enjoy a couple of cubes of chocolate daily.
Looking forward to watching the football later on the TV, it is getting very exciting now as the end of the football season approaches rapidly.
Hope that my team, Arsenal do very well, but will have to wait and see.
In the meantime I am enjoying today.
