There are those who say love is celebrated every day in their homes
and that Valentines day is a commercial holiday,
but I say, any day you can really tell someone you love them
is a good day to be celebrated.
We have always celebrated Valentines day in our house.
When the kiddies were little I used to give them a little red soft toy and a letter
but there are only so many little red toys you need.
So when they got older I started making an appropriate dinner.
It's simple, Tomato Soup and heart shaped scones.
It's so simple, there's time for a tidy and a vacuum
and a spot of decorating.
Just a few bits and bobs re-loved into a wee festive garland by Chrissy.
A dusted and decluttered sideboard, a pretty table cloth
and the table set nicely. It really doesn't take much to say I love you,
and nothing says it better in my mind than a vacuumed floor
but I may be old-fashioned in that!
A wee bunch of daisies from the supermarket in individual "vases" (reclaimed glass bottles)
flowers always add a festive touch I think.
Who knew that Hershey's kisses came in different flavours?
We didn't!! Almond and Cookies and Cream... yum!
Yes I agree we should tell our families every day we love them...
But why not take the opportunity to say it in a special way?
I'm hoping I will still be heating up tomato soup and making heart shaped scones
on Valentines day for my grandchildren,
it's festivals like this that hold families together!!!
Happy Valentines Day!!
