We have a very special lady living within our midst, someone whom we hardly knew before this wretched Pandemic, but she has been a beacon of light to us both and also to several of our neighbours. From time to time she has popped up our driveway and given us some interesting homemade goodies, but on Valentine's Day she arrived bearing two large packages for us.

A Valentine's Day Treat
The first held some homemade savouries and finger sandwiches,
and the second had miniature cream sponge cakes, some scones together with strawberry conserve and clotted cream, and last but not least chocolate dipped strawberries.
It was a really lovely 'high tea' treat which was much appreciated and greatly enjoyed.
Later on in the day our special grandson contacted us (no favouritism implied, we only have one grandson). We had a lovely chat and caught up with his news, and then he showed us around his new apartment on the computer. It is in the East End of London, and overlooks the Olympic Park. He is a Furniture Designer and this was very apparent in his choices for each room.
I know that many of you have good neighbours and friends that have helped you during the Pandemic too. One outcome of this year long situation has revealed the many thoughtful kindnesses and lovely gestures that so many people have made towards one another.
