This is the first Valentines Day for as long as I can remember – at least 20 years – that I will be on my own.
Now, most of the time since my big break up last Summer, I am ok. I am actually pretty happy on my own, I have become used to making my own choices about everything, and my life is so full with my wonderful children.
In most ways, life is better without my ex, but even I am starting to get a bit narked with all the Valentines Day hype.
I had never noticed in previous years all the gush everywhere – in the shops, on the TV, in the press, and of course on the Internet. What to buy, where to go, how to celebrate…….but what if you have no Valentine?
Here are a few ideas, and whatever you do, have a great Valentines Day
Be your own Valentine! Buy yourself some flowers, chocolates, or treat yourself to a little gift. You deserve it!
Grab your single girlfriends and arrange a lovely meal together – in one of your homes to
avoid all the slush outside! Have a sleepover!
Grab your kids and get a good movie, your favourite treats or takeaway and have a giant
unconditional Cwtch! Pure love!
Cuddle up with your cat or dog!
Totally on your own? Relish it! Spend the night / day doing exactly what you want. No-one to tell you what to do! Heaven!
