Happy Valentine's Day, I think.


Happy Valentine's Day dear readers. I hope you are all feeling loved today, whether by a sweetheart or by friends and family.  

Traditionally the day is for lovers and secret admirers, a day when you can express your true feelings without embarrassment. Today as we all know it is a bit too commercial, flowers that you could buy last week for £5 cost £15 today. Oh well. 

Obviously it is a day for giving out love as well as receiving and so Mike has hit the jackpot. Laid up in bed with a very nasty chest infection it isn't going to be a day of champagne and chocolates or even a card, instead he has me waiting on him hand and foot (where does that expression come from?) while he doesn't even know what day it is. 

I shall have to keep myself occupied with giving out more love with a project that would have had Paula reaching for her stash, and probably having completed a dozen by now. As some of you might already know if you read Deb B.'s blog, she had the idea of donating hand knitted or crocheted hats to cancer patients at her local hospital and hopefully further afield. 

Off to tend to my patient. Spread the love people.

  1. Great that you're spreading Deb's idea, Lorna. Keep up the good work!

    Could I also add my own Valentine’s Day message? Valentine’s Day is all about the heart, which is about living and loving.

    So, if you want to give a loving gift for life, you could consider giving blood or registering to donate stem cells or organs:
    Stem cells: http://www.anthonynolan.org/what-you-can-do/save-a-life/online-application.aspx
    Blood: https://secure.blood.co.uk/enrol.asp
    Organs: https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/how_to_become_a_donor/registration/consent.asp

    In the USA, 14 Feb is National Donor Day… It’d be great to instigate it here too. Please consider, then go ahead and do it. Today someone needs your blood and/or your stem cells – they may not be able to wait… It’s easy and virtually painless. You don’t need a special national day to register, you could do it any day. So why not today? How much more loving an act could you perform?

    P.S. Hope Mike feels better soon. x

  3. I'm late in getting to the blogs but you know I love you and Mike all the time, not just on Feb. 14. It must be the season, because my relative with MM is struggling with some bug, too. Intending Mike is pulling in his Highest Light of healing and energy and is back up and about soon!
