Love Is The Drug

So, no sooner have the Christmas decs been shoved back in the attic and the last random Quality Street eaten and it’s very nearly Valentines/Galentines Day. I looked up the equivalent for BRO LOVE and even phoned a friend - but it seems there isn’t one - ERR MARKETING PEEPS YOU ARE MISSING A TRICK!

So.. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the whole enforced love thing to be honest

I’ve never been very good at being told when to do things - my very ancient school report will bear testament to this .. but I do REALLY LIKE the idea of sprinkling that love thing about wherever and whenever possible.

As a lone female in a VERY masculine household - One ME, one husband and 4 boys (well men actually) it’s subconsciously been my mission to let my menfolk know that it’s a really positive thing to be able to show love to your family, siblings, pets, neighbours, peers and partners and we have lots of reminders around the house.
