It’s late (2300) – James and I are not long home from A & E, where he had a nebuliser for his asthma. Of course, he’s now buzzing and not ready for bed…… so I thought I’d share something we did today.
Earlier tonight, when we were putting the boys to bed, James asked me if I would write him a love letter. I said sure, I would do that, so started making it after their light went out.
First, I cut a scallop envelope from the retired Sweet Slumber specialty paper using my Big Shot, and decorated it with an owl. I cut a piece of Pink Pirouette card (to fit inside the scallop envelope), and used the same colour owl on that too.
By then, Asthma Boy was coughing incessantly, so we got him up to give him his inhaler… and he saw what I was doing. He dictated the ‘story’ side of the card, and ’embellished’ the gorgeous envelope with pictures of hearts (in red felt pen). But, you know, it is his love letter, so I just let him go. (Something I’ve learnt since having kids – some things you just have to let go.)
He has since shared this with the doctors and nurses at A&E, and thinks it’s pretty special. Mission accomplished.
Now it’s time for him (and us!) to go to bed – so I wish you a great week, and happy stamping. And make sure you tell someone you love them – it’ll make their day!
