As January comes to a close I'm reminded that Valentines Day is just around the corner and this year I am determined not to forget. Hubby and I have never make Valentines Day an expensive celebration but we do normally exchange cards or leave love hearts scattered around the house, or perhaps pop a rose on the pillow.
But I have a confession to make ... last year I forgot.
I know that sounds dreadful. But it's true and I had no excuse, other than the usual groan of "life is so busy being a Mum". To make matters even worst, hubby decided that year to break tradition and buy me some pretty and very expensive lingerie which, as you can imagine, took me by surprise and made my dreadful deed seem twice as bad.
So you can understand why this year I must not forget and I am already thinking about some Valentines ideas.
I think it is lovely that Valentines has spilled over into celebrating friendships and that children are being encouraged to give their parents a small Valentines gift or card. Whilst some may argue that Valentines Day is nothing more than a commercial ploy, I prefer to think of it as a day of appreciation. A day to take some time out and give thanks to those around us whom we love.
Coming up with a new Valentines idea each year can be a bit of a challenge, which is why I decided to list some sewing projects here to help you out.
