Little Legacy: The Joy of Little Love Notes

The joy of finding little love notes from your kids!

When I was little my Mum always left me little love notes, in my lunch box, little letters when she went away, and when I was a grumpy teenager and she wanted me to hang the washing out, she would draw me cartoons of washing dancing on the line too. It is something I try to do for my kids too, it brings a little joy to life and makes a happy home.

My kids leave me little notes now and so I was blown away with Mr G’s love and kisses post it note installation which covered my computer last week.

I seem to be having an inordinate amount of stress with wifi recently. Mr A was able to fix the faulty router in seconds, sadly I had already wasted days thinking it was the computer at fault and trying many weird things suggested in internet forums (apple forums you will be glad to know).

So coming into my office to see this took my breath away this week and brought a little tear to my eye. I think it is a vast improvement on my computer too!

Where do you leave little love notes?

    I always meant to leave love notes but I forgot all about it. I’m so going to leave a note in the lunch box tomorrow.

    What a fab surprise! A little note or lots of them means so much. I am a big fan of note writing and post it notes are the best for sticking on things in lunches boxes etc. xxx

    I love the notes. My daughter used to leave me little notes around the house when she became interested in her writing. Not sure I’ve ever had one from my son!
