A rosy glow

Today is the birthday of a very special friend.

We've known each other since 1980 when we started senior school together.

As you may remember I do like to give themed and for hers I chose roses.

A pair of silver rose ear-rings, rose patterned socks, a rosy scarf and of course there had to be chocolate and the obvious choice there was a mini box of Roses.

When I spoke to her earlier she told me they were eaten quite quickly after the parcel was open, sensible girl.
