Valentines Day

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

We’ve decided not to go out after all. We both now have a very busy week at work and don’t fancy a rushed restaurant dinner when we get back.

Instead we’ve decided to make lamb kebabs with hummus, grilled halloumi, pickles, salad, mint yoghurt etc, with a few beers/glass of wine before collapsing in front of the tv!

The valentine OH received consisted of his favourite Tunnock's tea cakes iced with a romantic message all in a heart shaped container ......... classy or what!!!? :tutu: ;)

Your OH and mine should get together Suffs. He loves Tunnock's tea cakes too. His valentine included heart-shaped marshmallows covered in dark chocolate. :D

I didn't receive a Valentine card - I didn't imagine I would. But I got something much better. A woman I used to perform song and dance acts with, and with whom I keep in occasional contact, knows I am in a fix with my ankle, and that I was desperate to get my kitchen sorted out. She came round and spent six hours scrubbing, chucking and rearranging. I wish she'd left me a map of where things have been relocated :D

She'll have put them 'in the obvious place' ....... obvious to her that is ..... maybe she wants to be invited back to find them for you ;)

Now that’s my kind of friend! What a lovely gesture, sometimes actions speak louder than mere words (printed in a valentines card) Gruney. Maybe you could reciprocate her kindness in some other way?

Oh we've been pals for years she's a very good dancer - I am not, but I'm a more confident singer than she is. We used to do routines like "We're a couple of swells". Just pals - but good pals; and nothing more.

I had a go at making an Isfahan for OH. It turned out OK, but I could have added more colour and flavour to match the original we had in Reims in September.

Then she started eating it before I could take a photo!!
