As I started typing ‘I’m not really one to celebrate Valentines…’ I realised that would probably be massively untrue, because you know what- I am. I know it’s not up everyone’s street, I know a lot of people can’t stand the commercialism of the day (red roses on offer anyone?), the money and the fact it shouldn’t just be one day a year you tell someone (or people) you love them (which is true)- but I am possibly the soppiest person alive, so relish in the fact you can be a bit ‘bleugh lovey dovey’ and nearly always get away with it for 24 hours once a year (even if you do spend Valentines night watching Take Me Out… ahem).
So, after getting up bright and early – Joe and I wandered East for a little surprise flower arranging workshop he’d secretly booked in order to celebrate the occasion (grossed out yet?) With the Columbia Creative Floral Company organising workshops occasionally throughout the year, it was the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time together and work on something rewarding and creative without picking up any garage carnations in the process. Seeing as it was something we’d never normally do, it was the perfect reason to get up early and meant we could enjoy the rest of the day too (even if it was in my ‘comfies’ and not this pretty slightly-sixties-bridal lace dress)…
