The Real Thing

Yesterday was just a bit of fun, this is what it's all about


don't you think?

(telegram sent to Lucy Violet from her husband Tom. Check the date, now that's love)

Never mind grandiose gestures (like Frozen Valentine's Round), "tea" with the one you love, is all you need.

  6. What a very poignant reminder about the real deal, pre- Hallmark and all the other rubbish.
    I get so tired of being told what days to be grateful for the people I love. We should be grateful every day. A cup of tea should always be enough!

  14. Oh that is so lovely...I bet that was the best Christmas present they both ever had.

    I must ask, who is the eponymous Lucy Violet? I guess she was your grandmother?

    I used to love to listen to my grandmother's war stories and remain fascinated to this day. It was such a particular period in our history, and I suppose it feels more relevant than all the other wars because we all knew people who had been directly affected by it. Another lovely post Kylie. xxx
