Morning, folks! TFI Friday, eh? I’ve been having a crazy week and it looks set to continue for the next week or too and I’m shattered. I feel like I could lay my head down on a pillow and sleep for a week. Still, exciting things are afoot with me and I hope to be able to tell you about it all soon.
In the meantime, let’s talk all things Valentine’s Day. Unless you’re blind (and even colour blind will do) you won’t have failed to notice the garish, pink monstrosity that is the Hallmark-inspired Valentine’s Day train heading straight for you. There’s no escaping it, whichever way you turn.
Now I don’t mind a bit of romance (brace yourself, Mr Stork…) but I don’t tend to go in for heart shaped, pink fluffiness nor can I stand the sort of forced romance that encourages overcrowded, overpriced, contrived ‘heartfelt’ meals for two where you’re close enough to the next couple to hear their whispered sweet nothings. No siree, not me. Give me a well chosen card (cutesy kittens, be gone!), a nice bottle of wine and some sex and I’m a happy woman.
We don’t tend to exchange gifts for Valentine’s Day but if we were to, these are the sort of gorgeous things that would float my boat. All available at the frankly wonderful emporium of gorgeousness that is Notonthehighstreet.com. I know it’s not Valentine’s Day for another few days but if you want one of these cool gifts to drop in to your lap in time for Cupid making his appearance, get ordering (or at least dropping the hints about the gifts you like…).
Valentine’s Day gifts for under £10
♥ My top pick is the ‘Will flirt for gin’ badge. Obvs.
Valentine’s Day gifts for her
♥ Loving the gorgeous wooden box but the pencils would take price of place on my desk. They’re so cute!
Valentine’s Day gifts for him
♥ Loving the coordinates print. I came this > < close to ordering it for Mr Stork and then I remembered I.Don’t.Do.Valentine’s.Day.Gifts. Which, in this instance, is a real shame.
So lovely guys and girls, tell me about Valentine’s Day at yours. Do you celebrate it? What do you do? Any traditions or are you a grumpy old git like me?
