Big Loves and Eating Crisps

♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ Happy St. Valentine's Day! ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥

I am very grateful that I have several big loves in my life.  My significant other Steve.  My family and friends. My cats Eric and Ernie.  Ready salted crisps.  And Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise.  It's a hand-clappy happy day when I get to combine any or all of those big loves.

Imagine my joy this week when I found Eric and Ernie eating crisps.  Nope, not my cats.  Although I wouldn't put it past them.  (Eric sometimes looks at me as if he's wondering if I'm good enough to eat. Unsettling.  I like to make sure he always has plenty of food just in case he decides I am.)  But my cats' namesakes, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise in a very short but fantabulous clip, where Eric makes short shrift of a packet of Golden Wonder.






Marie Lloyd, (1870-1922, English entertainer) said "A little of what you fancy does you good."(Although my nana made good use of that phrase each time she added a tot of whisky to her tea.)  So on this day celebrating big love, why not show yourself some great big love, make like Eric Morecambe, and really enjoy a little of what you fancy?

P.S.  I'll be back on Friday with Favourite Thing On A Friday, when I will blatantly big-up my now completed woolly patchwork knitted blanket.  It only took a year to complete. I'm looking forward to seeing your favourite things too. Em x

  3. I LOVE Eric and Ernie, and I do that "trick" with the bag (completely pinched off Eric, who I think was one of the funniest men ever.)
    So thank you for that, hope you have a lovely day! xxxx

  11. Hi Emma,

    I had forgotten all about your invitation to join your flickr album. So sorry! Only remembered today. Do you mind awfully if I say 'no'. I would love to do it, but I don't think I will be able to fill it, as I already have difficulty making my own posts and leaving comments on blog. Thank you for the honour though :-)

    Wish you a lovely Valentine's day!

    Much love,

    Madelief x
