Don’t Bother, Valentine.
Ooo, a little valentines blog.. Call me a skeptic if you will, but Valentines Day just isn’t my thing. Can’t help but think it’s nothing more than a cynical marketing exercise, rather than anything to do with amore.
To sit in a restaurant with a bunch of other couples all gazing into each others love-drenched eyes, glistening in the candlelight, because this we are told is the designated day for such behaviour, fills me with indifference quite frankly. Then there is the business of paying double that which we would usually pay for an identical meal! I mean I could buy myself ANOTHER dress instead! Apparently, this is exactly what a man wants to hear, and it’s crystal that mine couldn’t be more pleased or relieved at this attitude. Maybe I get it for the under 25’s, but beyond that it would only leave me wondering what unforgivable misdemeanours have been committed or even worse - what does he want!! ;) No offence to my lovely man of course, he’s a good boy really, I think.
So why am I writing this for heaven sake? Well. There are a lot of lovely pinks, reds, and valentine slogan tops etc., and I’m comfortable with this blog being as contradictory and inconsistent as it is, a scathing attack on The Day followed by a bunch of pieces in support of it. It’s my right as a woman after all, isn’t it?! Hell yeah. So if you do Valentine’s Day or better still you just feel like treating yourself, go on, here are a few ideas :)
Thanks for reading :)
