Just popping by to tell you how excited I am about Valentine’s day coming up! (There may be a special gift in store just for you, so pop back on Friday!) I am a die hard fan of the whole thing. I get told off by many people – saying, “It’s just a con invented to encourage mass consumerism!” or “It’s just a lot of superficial nonsense that makes people stressed!” or “It’s commercialism at it’s worst”.
Well to that I say NONSENSE!!
There’s nothing like the feeling, the thrill of anticipation the night before when you slip into a silky bubble bath wondering who your dashing mystery hero might be – the black polo necked fiend who deposits a box of Milk Tray on your pillow, then leaves without a sound (the swine!) or the handmade card with scribbly left handed writing to disguise the author? Or that moment where a someone you’ve never met before suddenly gives you flower… ok so – perhaps I am influenced somewhat by adverts from a certain era – but I’m telling you – take the time to send a card! You will make somebody smile to the roots of their being!
Here’s my secret – I know I will be getting a Valentine’s card. I’ve known every year from the age of 7 and I cherish it lovingly to my bosom – knowing full well who took the time to do such a gesture.
Now a lady would never tell… but thank you Gran, makes my year!
Go on – get out there and send that card!
And pop back here for your special Valentine’s gift from me and my friends
