I was feeling pretty lousy after my surgery was cancelled last week. A minor procedure I’ve been waiting for since September, for a problem I’ve had since June. So, yeah, pretty lousy. But on Friday morning the postie knocked on the door and handed over this beautiful box.
Upon opening, I realised it contained not just a stunning bunch of roses but also a cute, soft teddy bear and delicious box of chocolates. Lucky me!
Isn’t it strange how the simplest of things can put an instant smile on your face? And it’s so easy to do that for someone else. I really like the quote that came on the card:
“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” – Luther Burbank
Flowers are my go-to gift for birthdays, thank yous and I’m thinking of yous. And I love a bundle offer that comes with extras. How could you not love this teddy? He’s called Harry by the way.
The chocolates are lovely too. I might have accidentally eaten them all in 24 hours. I left them on the dining table and couldn’t help but eat one every time I walked past. Oops!
Most boxes of chocolates come with at least one naff one (orange or strawberry creme, anyone?) but all of these were super-tasty. I particularly liked the triple chocolate. And fudge brownie. And seasalted caramel. OK, they’re all good!
Flowers are such a great way to let someone know you’re thinking of them – and they last long after the chocolates are gone! Every time I walk past my flowers, I can’t help but smile.
