Did you have a romantic Valentine’s Day? We don’t do anything particularly special at Valentine’s but we did cook a lovely evening meal, with a glass of wine and ate together. Which was special in its own little way.

And I find that it’s always the small gestures that have the most meaning. Like a well thought out card with sweet words or the impromptu things that a loved one says or does for you at any time of the year.

And on the morning of February the 14th, whilst I was accepting the days orders on our system, what is a normal daily routine activity, I received a small gesture that meant the most to me. I received a special order from my Valentine & here it is:

My valentines card

It read: “I havent got you a card as I know you’re probably sick of the sight of them. But seeing as we work all of the time I thought Id let you know how much I love you through the medium of work ;o) I love you so much and everyday sitting here looking at you is a pleasure ;o) You really make my life and everything in it amazing. I am so proud of what we have achieved together. We have an amazing little girl and you are the best mum in the world to her. I feel truly thankful every day I awake for the life that I have and it is thanks to you that life is so amazing and I’m so happy. Thank you for being you xxxxx Love you loads darling and I am excited about the future and what we are going to do together xxxxxx”

I forgot to tell you that the most amazing woman in business, knickers business lady & rudey garms entrepreneur, Jacqueline Gold (Anne Summers Chief Executive), awarded Made With Love’s little old me, her WOW Award, celebrating women in business.

Here’s me proudly holding a badge:


I love her, I love this, I’d like to thank my mum…..waaaaah [starts crying]

It’s really nice to have received this award from somebody like Mrs Gold. It’s encouraging and inspiring to think that she believes in me & my business. Jacqueline said that she loved our creativity – which was completely amazing to hear.

Thank you very very much.
