Valentines day; I feel like it divides people, some people love it, they go all out with scheduling a restaurant dinner, buying expensive gifts; the 14th February has been earmarked in their diary with plenty of hope for romance! You then have the haters, the people that spend the day glaring at their loved up colleagues, avoiding the over commercial supermarket aisle and use the phase ‘makes me sick’ whilst rolling their eyes for those cupid induced 24 hours.
Me…well I think I sit in the middle. I am a girl that loves an occasion, a birthday, anniversary, easter and my new fav mothers day. I like to have something to look forward to, getting people together, eating cake and celebrating something, so valentines for me is a nice day to note but not in an over the top way! I like to give and receive a card and of course some pretty flowers go down a treat but as regards to making a massive song and dance I’d rather get our favourite food in and watch a nice film. I don’t want to abandon it altogether but I certainly wont be going major gushy for one day as my husband would say in the cliché manly way…Its about everyday not just one…
Enjoy whatever you do
