As you may have seen on Twitter yesterday morning, I have been struggling to come up with a Valentine’s Day related blog.
That’s mainly because i’m not a huge fan – on the whole I think it’s just an overrated excuse for card shops to sell rubbish to the gullible and restaurants to put up their prices (yes, i’m a cynic).
So it got me thinking about what I’d want to receive for Valentine’s Day, instead of just the usual junk covered in hearts. And I confess that it didn’t take long to decide!
I would rather like this dress from Poppy Valentine:
It’s pretty and feminine without being over the top. I’d wear it to be taken out for a lovely meal at Byfords in Holt (I would have said ‘to sip champagne cocktails in Rome’, but the blog is about Norfolk, so Byfords will have to do!)
And a box of handmade chocolates from Caley’s wouldn’t go amiss either.
But seriously, I think it’s all a bit ridiculous and would rather make the effort all year round, rather than just once a year.
What are you doing this Valentine’s Day?
