Happy Valentine’s Day

I guess like most of us, we have more than one quilt for our bed.  One of my family rituals is to put my quilt “Hearts of Love” on our bed on particular months of the year.  On February, to celebrate the month of love, incorporating Valentine’s Day.  And then again in November, to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary month.  Robin, as it would be expected, is blissfully unaware of the significance of these occasions – a quilt is a quilt, to him.   But I always remind him, of course.

Hearts of Love, made for our 25th Anniversary

There is a lot going on this week, so we don’t plan to dine out tonight, instead, we will collect a favourite take-away.  And to finish our Valentine’s Day meal, I’ve been busy in the kitchen, making a chocolate cake and some jam drop biscuits, cookies to those from other shores.  There’s more than enough for us, and plenty to share with our expected visitors too.

And how about this as a “blast from the past”.  This is what we looked like, all those years ago when we decided that we wanted to marry.  We both used to have dark hair, back then!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.
