Lucky Girl

I'm not usually one for Valentine's Day but today's treat came exactly at the right time. I have been nursing a cold all weekend, but today it got nasty. I was really feeling under the weather and couldn't even make it to lecture, which is not like me at all. I was curled up in bed, box of tissues in one hand, hot water bottle in the other when there was a knock at my door. There was no reply when I said they could come in, so I reluctantly pulled myself out of bed and opened the door.
There waiting for me was a box marked M&S flowers. Oh gosh. I knew there was only one boy who would be sending me flowers on this special day. Ladies, I am very lucky to have my Lawrie. It's almost like he knew I was feeling awful, so timed it to perfection. He's away skiing so we weren't able to do anything, but he sneakily surprised me and made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
My boy just didn't get me one rose, he got me the whole rose plant!

I cannot wait to get this planted in a proper pot and look after it. It will be so special when it blooms. I truly love this gift because it's so very personal and something that will keep on giving.
Isn't he the sweetest? :)

Hope you're enjoying lots of sweet treats as well!

Awwwww what a sweet thought, you are a lucky girl! Hope you feel better soon. Hubby and I don't usually do anything for Valentines day, but last night I got surprised by a bottle of wine, sweets and a beautiful rose . . . apparently because it wasn't valentines day!

What a great present. I love the fact that your gift won't fade away in a few days time. What a sweetie to think of that.

Hope you feel better soon!

What a sweet gift! It will continually bloom which is far better than the store bought roses which die off after several days. And he timed it so perfectly! He's definitely a keeper!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Hope you feel better soon.
