Valentine's Day

Firstly, Happy Valentines Day to all those who wish to be wished it and to all those who don't... Happy Saturday!

Yes, I'm fully aware that I don't need to wait until Valentines Day to show my appreciation to those in my life and if you've read my blog before or know me in real life then you'll know that I don't, but I do like to do something special every once in a while and Valentines Day is a good a day as any!

Today I'm ready to spoil my lovely husband and children rotten, as we'll be together and none of us will have to disappear off to Work or School... although I will be going shopping at one point with my Mum and Top Ender, leaving Daddy and Big Boy at home to get up to no good.

These are the faces of my family when they are planning on being up to no good!

In the past I have sent valentines cards to friends and family members who haven't been expecting to get something in the post either from a loved one or a secret admirer, because for me Valentines Day is a chance for me to make sure that those around me know that they are loved.  If you'd like to be considered for one of these in the future then let me know!


What have I arranged this year?

Well, a few special friends will be getting handwritten letters delivered in the post, there are a couple being hand delivered too. It was a treat to myself to be able to sit and think about the recipients of the letters and to write things that I thought they might be interested to be told or glad to hear or even in some cases need to be reassured about. I always think of it being an extension of the Facebook Updates that I do every so often where I get to say nice things about my friends.

I have of course got my lovely husband a card, which will probably pop up on Instagram later today and I made cards for the Children with the Bostik Crafts box for Feb too.

We're having BBQ Chicken Burgers for dinner tonight, a treat for us all.

I've covered both the children's bedroom doors in hearts with some of the hearts having some special words of love and encouragement on for each child.

And most importantly, at least I think so, I've arranged for Daddy and I to have a night in together doing not very much. Admittedly he'll probably end up working on the PC whilst I sit drawing on the sofa, but it'll be us together having a chat about bits and pieces and just relaxing.

Aahhhhhh Bliss!

Do you have anything planned? Make me jealous with stories of jewellery and flowers!
