As I write this the women of the office are considering their Valentine gifts.
None of us have received anything more than a kiss.
One staffer is of uncertain relationship status and is considering speed dating tonight.
We all agree that Valentine’s Day is actually little more than an opportunity for the world of commerce to part us from the money we have worked so hard for. Still, if any husbands or partners decided to break with tradition and treat us to a meal out, it would unlikely be declined.
However, those of us with children were delighted to receive kissess, cuddles and cards from our little ones filled with heartfelt and unconditional love.
My seven-year-old even included a glass of wine for Mum in her spotty heart illustration attached to the card on a spring.
So maybe the point of the day is not so much romantic love but just love from whoever is special in our lives.
