I love cuddles!
I’m a huggy person – and I am not ashamed to admit it!
Cuddles are great to give and receive.
SC and I have a morning ritual, whilst his cereal is warming up, whereby I sit on the floor with my arms outstretched and he runs from the other side of the room and flings himself at me and we just have a huge hug.
In the evenings, just before I read him his stories, we have another ritual, whereby we have a huge hug and I tell him how much I love him – which is, to quote a very famous spaceman, “to infinity and beyond!”
If I’m feeling a bit “out of sorts” he instinctively knows and just gives me a big cuddle and says “I love you Mummy” – and that makes the world right again 😉
Hugs are also a great way of telling friends you’re there, when words can sometimes fail, in times of trouble.
And when you are with someone special, for me, cuddles are far more intimate and sensuous than anything.
I would rather spend a night enveloped in someone’s arms (and cuddling back) feeling loved, safe, and all those feelings that go with it, than anything else on earth.
