One good thing about Valentine’s day when you are a spinster with cat is that there are absolutely no expectations, so you can’t be disappointed*.
The best bit about having no expectations is that then, when something lovely happens, it’s twice as lovely.
So receiving a Valentine’s card from Norman via The Lovely Nut, (an ex’s mum, obviously. Who else would arrange a card from your cat?!) made me smiley that she’d been so very thoughtful.
Then I noticed a bag attached to my front door. A mystery admirer left me these:
It wasn’t a mystery admirer, obviously, but what a brilliant sister I have to do that for me.
And then I popped over to a friend’s and her three year old son had made me chocolate cornflake cakes. Not as a Valentine thing, but just because:
So tonight, I don’t feel sad that I’ll be crocheting on the sofa with Norman. I’ll be feeling happy that I have such lovely, thoughtful people around. And that’s a kind of love, isn’t it?
Whether you’re with the love of your life, curled up with your cat, or somewhere in between, Happy Valentine’s Day to you :o)
* of course I’d rather be swept off my feet with hearts and flowers, but you know, I’m being positive here :o)
