I know, I could EASILY come up with five things I love about SD, actually, I could probably come up with fifteen or fifty or maybe even fifty five at a push ...
But I'm not going to because frankly, it would bore you ... and you would think I was smug ... and if SD ever read this then he would DEFINITELY be smug ... and then I might have to kill him ...
One thing I DO love about SD though is his understanding of CREAM!
Now one of my pet hates is it when you go out for a meal, you dress up especially wearing something with an elasticated waistband so you can stuff your face with impunity (and everything else they have on the menu) - you order triple chocolate cheesecake WITH cream and when your longingly anticipated desert turns up you get this artistically drizzled trickle of cream over the top like a frigging cow has accidentally pissed in the direction of your pudding.
Cream teas - that's another one that gets me!
If I've paid a fiver for a cream tea I want:
a) TWO bloody scones NOT one please (and I 'd like it plain NOT fruit!) and
b) Enough clotted cream to sink a battleship (and seriously, don't ever try palming me off with that disgusting squirty stuff!) - I want it to ooze out of the sides every time I take a bite and land in a big dollop on my lap whereupon I WILL scrape it off my lycra clad thigh, spread it back on to my scone and eat it because where cream is concerned I HAVE NO SHAME!
Anyway, as I said, SD understands cream despite being a bit of a health and fitness freak and we agree that if you're going to have it then a 50/50 ratio of cream to pudding is about right which I think is a pretty good basis for a relationship don't you agree?
The other thing that I think is important in a relationship (and I AM an expert in relationship matters - I've even considered setting myself up as some sort of relationship consultant or something as you will see if you care to pop over and take a look at this post) is having the same views on romance.
I know, I know, you're thinking, 'not another bloody Valentines posts, she's already brought us a crappy crafting post on chocolate roses this week - enough is enough!' Actually, having made about 3 dozen of the bloody things I'd be inclined to agree with you!
'But it's Valentines Day on Saturday ...' I want to bleat pathetically (and yep, well, this is my blog and I'll
Long time readers will probably have seen my Purple Donut Of Love post from last year with it's represational art (most of which fell off) and my empty biscuit tin - if you haven't then you can read about it here or, if you can't be bothered then THIS my friends is last years Valentines card:

Très romantic don't you agree?
I think SD was worried about how he was going to top that one this year, I mean
So he had a chat with a year 7 yesterday who has come up with a prototype for this year's card:
I am indeed blessed ...
Oh, and I almost forgot!
I promised Stephen (and anyone else who expressed an interest) my wannabe Wookiee photo so here it is:
