Yes the day they call Valentine is almost upon us yet again. Valentine’s day came up in a conversation with a new colleague, as we were walking down the streets. She was getting all excited because she was looking forward to spending the day with her boyfriend. She was like ‘isn’t it exciting?’ I was like ‘no’, then proceeded to tell her it was a waste of time. She said it was all about love, blah,blah. I told her, ‘you don’t need 14 February to prove to someone you love them’, that love should be all year round. She was still trying to get me to see things from her point of view.
I asked if her boyfriend only loves her or lavishes on her, just one day of the year? What do you think her reaction was? You guessed right, silence. Of course, she’s just a loved up kid, I am nearly twice her age, so yes the elder wins, lol.
Valentine’s day this year happens to be on a Sunday, my church wants us to celebrate. We were paired up, quite funny how it happened because no one was expecting it. We were doing the usual going round and saying hello to one another. Then the guy doing the notices then said ‘the person you are talking to is going to be your Valetine’. I ended up with a married woman, it was funny when it was men and men, the look on their faces was priceless.
I have got a box of chocolates for my Val and I will be baking heart shaped red velvet brownies for the church. So I guess in a way I am celebrating Valetine’s day even though I don’t have a fella:D. Just goes to show I don’t have to wait for Prince Charming to enjoy my life, yay!
All that is left for me to say is Happy Valentine’s day.
