They enjoyed making love heart Valentines with Nain.

F: “I think Nain does like doing atitities (activities) like we do Ioan!”
I: Why do you think that is Finn?” F: “Because she’s Mummy’s Mummy and she used to do atitities with her when she was a little girl!”

There was never any doubt about who inspires me most.


  • Pink card
  • Scissors
  • Stickers
  • Craft jewels


They cut hearts out of the card, then decorated them with stickers and jewels.

Check out those concentrating faces as some of the stickers tested fine motor skills.

You can tell it’s been winter for too long…
I: “Why have you got your eyes shut?”
F: “I need my sunglasses, the sun is too bright, I can’t open mine eyes!”

Finn made his heart to share with Daddy.

Ioan gave half of his heart to me. They’ve asked to keep them on our fireplace so we never forget how much we love each other.
