Another Valentine's Day...

So another Valentine's Day is just about over and done with :-)
DH actually gave me this lovely plant the day before my colonoscopy to cheer me up while I drank 'the evil brew'

This year, I took DH out for breakfast at our favourite local cafe. We breakfasted well; my Eggs Benedict was delicious as was DH's omelette. 
After breakfast I got a little Valentine's gift from DH...
I love fresh raspberries but at $7 per punnet, they are just an occasional treat...and I got 2 !
Naturally I wanted to sample those raspberries as soon as we got home...plus, blueberries, blackberries and a chopped up banana...yum!



My hair appointment yesterday had to be postponed when my hairdresser had a family emergency to attend to, so late this morning I headed off to my rescheduled appointment.  
Our next outing was at 5pm...my little great niece, Lucy, was celebrating her 5th birthday with a pizza dinner at a local cafe. This was the family party...I believe there will be a kids' party next weekend! 
There were 15 of us, so lots of people were left out of the photo! Lol.

Blowing out the 5 candles...

DH and I gave Lucy a musical jewellery box with the little ballerina who pirouettes around when the box is opened...and some 'diamond' jewels made just for little people. It was a great hit and I'm sure that the little ballerina is exhausted as she seem to dance constantly through out the evening! Lol 

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. After an evening of drinking rather yucky stuff, the routine procedure next day was a 'cinch', lol. Everything was okay and my doc wrote in his report that '...this is a reassuring result for Maria.' And so the next one will also be in another 5 years...sweet! :-) Talking of sweet...
I rarely eat sugar these days but I must say that the lemon jelly that was allowed when on the clear fluids part of the preparation, certainly made drinking the yucky stuff, a lot easier.

Beautiful Red cyclumins. Sounds like a lovely Valentine Day you spent with hubby.
Lucy's party looked like fun. Sew nice when the little ones love their BD gift.

Aw your DH is so sweet to brighten up your evil brew day!! They look lovely and will keep for ages. Delicious looking fruit too. A fresh fruit salad is just perfect isn't it :D)
A lovely family birthday gathering, looks like Lucy was thoroughly enjoying herself.
The jelly is a great idea and, even the prep drink is a whole lot more (I hesitate to use the word, but...) 'palatable' than 20 years ago fortunately :D) Cheers now and I like how your Doc writes in his reports !

What a lovely DH. Sounds like a fun time for a 5 party - no wonder they have two parties with so many people.
