It turns out I couldn’t fit everything I wanted to say to SJ in a card this year. I decided instead to make a tag book, telling her just some of the many reasons I love her.

Here’s a wee video showing the full thing. The music is ‘In This Heart’ a song by Sinead O’Connor, but sung here by The Idea of North.

The song is special to us – it’s one of the love songs that’s been part of our relationship for a long time. It was part of our ‘Really Big Party‘, we used to sing it to Arty as a lullabye… It’s precious.

It’s still a very little thing, and it doesn’t come close to holding all the love I have for SJ. No earthly thing could.
