I suppose this is a similar to post to what things would you take to a desert island but for me these are the things that I know life would change for me if I didn’t have these items in my life.  This really is a blatant materialistic post.  I think it does no harm no and them to look at the materialistic things we like to surround ourselves with.  I believe it only becomes a problem when all we like around us is materiaslic things and we are in a situation where others are getting harmed by us have… View Post

Valentines day is fast approaching next week.  Personally I really aren’t one for huge romantic gestures with roses and meals out.  I’d much rather have a well thought out gift and a night in with a special meal.  As I have got older I’ve learnt to appreciate small well thought out gifts.
