Today is the day we all get inundated with hearts and flowers wherever we turn!
Its a special day for me and hubby, because we met on Valentine's Day over twenty years ago. Not at a special Valentine dance, or anything remotely to do with the hearts and flowers brigade.
We met when we were both doing some work for a hospital charity. Hubs had been doing the night shift and I came along to do the day shift. Not the most likely place for love to start, but grow it did.
We've been through a lot, with his accident and the twelve year road back to normality, so he usually buys a present for Valentine's. If its jewellery I fancy, he always tells me to pick it myself and he'll pay for it.
That's what happened this year. One of my friends is a jeweller and she makes the most stunning jewellery in all styles. My preference is for clean, sleek lines, so this is what I chose from her range.
Happy Valentine's Day to you, however you celebrate.
