I love Valentines Day.  There you go, i said it.  Before you disown me, let me tell you it's not because i am a romantic, squishy squashy sort of person.  Oh no.  I am quite contented if someone can give a good hug and make me a mean cup of Lady Grey.  I just love red.  And i love pink (typical valentine-y colours yes?).  And i love hearts.  Anything heart shaped you can throw a stick at to be honest.  If its heart shaped, it has me hook, line and sinker. It's a print afterall, and we all know about me and prints.  

 So today, i painted tiny red hearts on my nails, wore red on my lips and a pink jumper (with a horse printed shirt underneath (because you don't want to look like you have been completely tickled with the Valentines stick do you?) and did my usual business. I cycled (listening to this - just incase you were wondering), bought a new pair of brown boots and smirked at the many squillions of people fighting amongst the 'Gourmet Dine in for Two' in M&S.  I bought a cherry scone, and a big cappuccino from Costa and sat and swang my legs by the cathedral.


I watched people rush by in their lunch hours, with big Clinton's Cards bags, balloons and a manner of other paraphernalia.  And i enjoyed my little scone.  Tonight we shall be eating jacket potatoes for tea, with lots of rocket, beetroot and tuna.  And then curling up with hot chocolate and watching Junior Doctors.  And i wouldn't have it any other way.   


  1. OOh your night sounds lovely, I love beetroot and grow my own xx

  2. very nice ;))

    would you like to follow each other?

  3. Sounds like the perfect evening! :) I really like Valentine's Day - just not all the spending that goes on. Flowers are fine but tons and tons of gifts? No. I'd much prefer a cosy night in than some over priced restaurant x x

  4. Aw, lovely post. I really like valentines day too. Im not overly romantic, in fact I can't really handle all that slushy stuff too well. but I do like making little efforts and buying cards and heart shaped things. Hope u had a nice evening. x
