Sunshine and romance

Buds appearing cr Judy DarleyToday is one of those days when it feels like spring might actually almost be here. Recently I saw my first primroses and this morning I’ve noticed shiny little buds appearing in the garden.

Valentine's card cr Judy DarleyYesterday, of course, was Valentine’s Day, which necessitated me making a card for my hubla. Inspired by Iviva Olenick’s creations, this is what I came up with.

He cooked me dinner (bacon and mushroom pancakes, just a day late!) and we went to Watershed to see Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday. What a gorgeous film! Wed actually had a small row on the way there (isn’t that obligatory on Valentine’s Day?), and were snuggling and kissing (our apologies to the lone man who sat beside us…) by the time the credits rolled. The power of storytelling, mmm?

Today is one of my lovely writing days, and my main goal is to finish writing up the first draft of an interview with a woman who seems to live in a swirl of crocheted art, flowers and sunshine – I really need to find some new synonyms for the word colour.

Then tomorrow I’m off to London to catch up with a dear friend and see the Harold Pinter play Old Times. Can’t wait, even if it does mean a dawn scurry to the Mega Bus!
