The love of little things


I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines. I was given some gorgeous heart shaped chocolates wrapped in gold paper from my Dad, which made my day, it definitely is the little things that mean the most.

Another little thing that has been quite wonderful has been the opportunity to make apricot jam with the fruit from my mum's tree. It was laden with fruit and they've been so fresh and sweet. My favourite fruit and such a strong reminder of summer's past.

Oh how lucky to be able to have fresh apricots from the tree and make homemade jam with them! I guess that is one of the benefits of living somewhere warm. I think I have forgotten what the sun feels like! I love your photo - it does have a real summery feel to it and the jam looks very tasty!
