My first Valentine remains a mystery.

Happy Valentines Day to you all. If you received a Valentine card and flowers or chocs today, I’m sure you will be spending the day with your special person. There used to be a time when Valentines were supposed to be a secret and you didn’t get to know who sent them. I remember my first Valentine was when I was a teenager at school. It arrived through our letterbox on a Saturday morning, and I was sure it must be from a boy I really fancied but who had until that day, shown no interest in me whatsoever. I was so thrilled and couldn’t wait for Monday morning to arrive, when I would see him again at school. To my surprise and chagrin, when I did see him in class, he still ignored me, so sadly, I had to assume that the card wasn’t from him. I was so disappointed, and I never did find out who sent that gorgeous card. What’s the point of that? Did any of you have secret Valentines?

Anyway, the wonderful love I’ve found since that schoolgirl crush, has more than made up for my disappointment, and today I had a beautiful orchid,


a red nightdress, (which you don’t need to see, ‘cos I’m wearing it) and a romantic hearts and flowers card from my ‘true love’.

I’m so glad I didn’t live in the Stone Age. Their method of courtship looks really painful don’t you think?
