Because of all this Valentine's Day doesn't really mean that much to us, we don't need to be told when to show our love, we all know Valentine's Day is a big commercial ploy but I must admit I still enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, if Feb 14th was taken out of the year I wouldn't miss it one iota, but seeing as it is there I do enjoy it. I think living in America did it to me, they sure know how to celebrate occasions over there! And I have very fond memories of Valentine's Day at school there and here in the UK too (remember the King's Valentine's Messenger girls, I think there was a message for one of us on every single page one year!!!)
On Sunday we all went over to my Aunty and Uncles for a meal and I had some cupcakes made for mum by the lovely Sal from The Little Cakery.
We all had a wonderful day!

Full tummies after a lovely meal!
Some of the gorgeous gifts from my gorgeous mummy.
She also bakes the best cakes, as all the office will agree!
She is one of my favourite Valentine's ever!
Yesterday (Actual 'Valentine's Day') was perfect, although it was a working day hubby met me and Belle for lunch and then took the rest of the day off work. Every year we have been out for a romantic meal, just hubby and I, but this year I could not have asked for a nicer Valentine's Day then having lunch with my little family.
Lovely card and perfume from hubby
Cute photo frame presents
All ready to meet Daddy for lunch
