It is bitterly, bitterly cold where I am. While it may seem a mild 5°C (41F) outside, there is another storm blowing with gale force strengths across Ireland, and the rain is battering against my windows. Inside, I am shivering in 12°C (53F), despite five layers of clothing on me, including two fleece hoodies. My house has no central heating, only open fireplaces. (Yes, dear American readers – some Europeans obviously *do* still live in the middle ages 😉 ) What is keeping me warm today is all the Valentine’s love that has been coming forth. I trust you have visited the RAworld Secret Valentine blog where some lovely lovely ladies from our community have been spreading the love within the fandom. I have been spoilt with wonderful gifts of messages myself. Thank you to my kind and creative Valentines! Kisses to you xxx And a big thank you for taking part in the Love Fest!
Off-site I have been sent a
deliciously naughty edit, too – blacked out for my private enjoyment and your suspense *ggg*. My anonymous Valentine has listened closely – this is one of my favourite shots. How nice of her to weave a little fantasy around that.
But not only that, RL also showered me with gifts. As part of the tumblr Secret Valentine I received a letter from Finland yesterday. Yes, I left it unopened until this morning. It’s all about delayed gratification. (If you don’t know what that is, Tom Hiddleston explains it to you here.) And what a wonderful surprise I got. This is the whole goodness that was contained in my gift from Riepu10.
Isn’t that picture and frame simply amazing? It took me a second to cop on – but she actually designed the frame to be specifically customized for Sir Guy. The leather tubing on his jerkin. Ingenious. And it is so neatly made, it looks absolutely perfect. If she made it herself, she is a master craftess! The keyrings are great, too. Sir Guy will be guarding my keys from now on – that way he shall always be by my side.
The chocolate is already half eaten, ooops, the lollipops assigned.
So yeah, no matter how far the temperature will drop outside today – inside, in my heart, I am boiling hot.
Thanks fandom – I love ya, too 🙂
