This valentines day


Valentines Day is the one day of the year when you all declare your love to your other half or a admirer / crush.

It is very hyped up and retailers make things twice as expensive because they know you will spend it if you really want it. People go all slushy on social media and try to out do each other.

I guess this is the first year in ages that I’ve been in a relationship and other years I’ve just been ‘ oh it Valentine’s Day, how many cards will come through my door….zero 🙈

I think that yes it’s lovely to have a special day like we do for Christmas but blink and you miss it

I am a sucker however for a good old love song, so here’s a throwback playlist I found on Spotify

As I’m writing this it’s the day before Valentines. I won’t be seeing my boyfriend til the 15th so I’m going to make Valentines a self love day. So tonight I’m going to get everything ready to grab tomorrow.

This will include things such as


I could go well over the top but it’s just to make me feel good. I don’t know what the plans are when I see the other half. Just seeing him will be enough.

Hope you have a lovely day whatever you decide to do.



I thought I’d share a game we play with the family after we’ve had our Christmas lunch and let it go down

One person wraps a present up really well with sellotape, say 10 times. You have a pair of mittens or a two single oven gloves and a dice.

you can have as many players as you wish

you each roll the dice, once someone gets a 6 they put on the gloves and try and unwrap one layer of paper at a time (a chocolate coin or sweet could be placed in between each layer. while this is happening the dice should be passed around in turn for people to try get 6.  once someone else gets a 6 then that player with the gloves stops immediately and passes it on to them.

it continues until the main prize is revealed .

Quite an entertaining, fast paced game, sometimes people are frustrated and swear.
