Valentines Day was a week ago, the roses have dried up, the chocolates have been eaten and if you want more you can still buy them at a discounted price.
In the run up to this day of hearts and schmaltz I decided to purchase some really delicious looking “mallow filled” heart chocolates just in case Eldest wanted to take his teacher a little something for Valentines Day. (Apparently some kids do this.) So while he was eating his lunch I informed him of my purchase to take to his teacher for Valentines Day.
“Nah! I think Valentines Day kinda stinks!” he replied pulling up his nose.
Trying to keep a straight face I replied that I thought he may like to take his teacher a chocolate.
“If you give me a chocolate, to give to my teacher, I think I will eat it!” he said thoughtfully.
Well, at least the boys honest!
On Valentines Day, as I was peeling back the bright pink foil off one of these delicious little morsels, I have to admit, I was secretly delighted!
