Valentine’s Day.


Hi Friends and followers.

HAPPY  VALENTINE’S DAY. I have never been one to go wild over Valentine’s Day. Keith and I used to buy each other and a small gift, when we first got together, but we then decided that we would not bother. Last year bought me a lovely pair of earrings, I had seen in an Antiques Centre. This year Keith bought me a very pretty charm.


I have not decided whether to put a Silver chain with it or to wear it on my earrings. I took Keith out for lunch. I said “we can go anywhere you like”. His choice of place was Wetherspoon’s. We did both have a lovely meal, Keith had the Singapore Noodles with extra Chicken and I had the Chicken Tikka Masala. Both dishes were as good as always.

I have never been over the top with Valentine’s Day, because like other celebration days, it has been over commercialised. It is written that In the UK, just under half of the population spend money on their Valentines and around £1.3 billion is spent yearly on cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts, with an estimated 25 million cards being sent. Just think of all those tree’s which were chopped down to make the cards?


  1. My other half is from the "if you love someone you should tell them every day and not wait for Valentines Day" way of thinking!

    Anyway I agree it is far too commercialised now :)

  2. Hi Alison.
    Thank you for your message. I am with your other half on this.
    I do not think a day is needed to tell someone you love them as well. My other half knows I love him and that is why we rarely bother with Valentine's Day. Maybe he is becoming an old softie LOL. We went food shopping today and the amount of Valentine's day stuff there was at half-price was incredible.
