Just my humble opinion…
So today is Valentine’s Day and I am not sure how I feel about that. I see all these beautify photos on Instagram of heart-shaped dishes from cookies to pancakes to full sized cakes and so many many other lovely treats. To be honest I love the look of all of them and the creativity and thought behind them.
And I just love the colour pink so anything pink I see (or maybe most pink things) I love.
When you go out to the shops today you see all these men rushing around buying roses and chocolates. And I can’t help but thinking isn’t this all a bit silly?
Is it because we never do anything like that (my other half and me), I don’t get flowers or chocolates and we don’t go out for a romantic dinners on Valentine’s Day.
But honestly who does?
I think if I came home with some pink cake or chocolates I’d be getting very highly raised eyebrows.
I remember the only time I got a present (roses a big teddy and chocolates) on Valentine’s Day was the very first year I was going out with my significant other, and I think the pressure of it all got to him.
On the other hand, my little James came home yesterday with a handmade Valentines Card for his dad, brother and mum and I thought that was so cute. They made them in school yesterday and now it’s on my kitchen press.
The girls in the office had the idea of making our own cards this year, too. And so we did.
But is anybody really taking today seriously. Are there people out there who would spend a fortune going out for dinner and buying expensive presents? I am sure there are, otherwise restaurants wouldn’t be fully booked tonight and the guys would be running around buying all that stuff.
Anyway Ill be off to Instagram now looking at all the pink heart shaped food and maybe next year, if I don’t forget Ill create something myself and post the recipe her. Until then you have my delicious pink breakfast bowl to look at which I made today and it coincided with the pinkest day of the year. HAHA
