Love Cooking

On our first Valentine's Day, I made The Australian scrambled eggs with I LOVE YOU candles stuck into them. The candles melted between the kitchen and the bedroom, and so I presented him with blue/pink/green eggs with 8 burnt-out cocktail sticks. The year before last I baked him a giant heart cookie, elaborately decorated. It lived on the shelf in our kitchen, cruelly rejected. I kept saying "When are you going to eat your delicious giant cookie?" We threw it out in August. So this year I'm staying out of the kitchen. And here, instead, is a clip that I can identify with all too well. With lots of love to my blog readers...and a special Welcome to the World to my niece, Matilda, born just a few hours ago (YES, I AM OFFICIALLY AUNTIE EM!).

oh that made me shake laughing

I feel for you with the cookie. I once bought Mr Coffee a shaving mug with Desperate Dan on it, and I do not think he has ever hated anything so much.

Happy Valentine's Day Emily - but it's probably nearly over where you are. xx
