Inside was a selection of coffee, pastries, treats and hazelnut chocolate spread.... everything needed for a perfect breakfast in bed. It was just the lift that I needed to cheer me up and make me forget how ill I actually felt!
Co-Operative Food have teamed up with Fred Sireix from First Dates this Valentine's day to help create love at first light and a bit of magic in the bedroom. So.... back to bed it was to enjoy some of the treats!
I warmed up the croissants in the oven and made some mugs of steaming hot coffee to enjoy them with. The chocolate spread melted inside the warm croissants.... it was heaven! I don't really have a sweet tooth but sometimes when I get poorly (or exhausted!), I go a bit nuts for chocolate so this all really cheered me up!
Emilia, of course, helped out with the chocolate treats too. This chocolate lolly is absolutely adorable....
And this sweet little chocolate bear? Well I think he's just too cute to eat! I'm going to put him away and share him at a later date.
It just goes to show how small acts of kindness can really mean a lot to other people. So, why not treat someone you love (your partner, children, a friend or even yourself!) to a special breakfast this weekend?
