14th February. St Valentines Day. That time of year when greeting card companies and florists rub their collective hands with glee as we buy cards and flowers to tell our partner we love them.
It’s been some while since I received or sent a Valentines card (no violins please). Haven’t been in a relationship for a while and at the moment, that fact doesn’t really bother me. Of course, I think back to some of the good times, but also some of the bad times too. Memory is a strange thing.
So, while loads of people will receive gifts and messages of unrequited love, little old me will have to make do with nothing being received. I like it that way. It’s one less thing to worry about, amongst the many other things that I do worry about.
I’ll leave you all to it….
