...difference between love and romance that often gets confused.
Romance is things like buying flowers/chocolates for your loved one, love is buying them Marmite when you loathe the stuff.
Romance is cooking them a nice meal or taking them out for dinner, love is regularly doing the washing-up because they hate it.
Romance is presents at unexpected times, love is completely unexpected presents at expected times.
(love is also cropping huge cheesy grins out of pictures)
Today I smiled all day, a big twinkly smile that became infectious. I smiled because of something I was given yesterday, a gesture of love laced with a hearty dose of romance.
But when I came home tonight and the kitchen was tidy and the litter tray had been changed - then I smiled with love love LOVE.
Here's to clean litter trays, to washing-up, to Marmite, to Michael Schumacher 7-star caps...
...and here's to a rather perfect symbol of romance and love.
(and to a cat that must be in every single photograph ever taken while sat at this desk)
