January seemed to go on for ever, cold days and long dark nights one after the other. Winter is such a boring time, apart from when your curling up in front of a log fire with cake, chocolate and a good book or looking out the window at a winter wonderland of snow. Yes, they make it all sound so lovely in stories but real life it’s a bit different, sitting by a radiator or getting into bed as it’s warmer with freezing feet after trudging through wet dirty ice.
Then comes February a short month, thank goodness, half term for the children, nights getting longer. But then you get Valentines Day, which appears to be getting a bigger deal every year and lovely for the couples, if they both remember and know exactly what the other wants and how to celebrate or they won’t be a couple for much longer. For all us single souls it is a pain in the arse, I am sick of being reminded in adverts, shops, on line, magazines actually every where you look and hear as it’s all over the radio too. Why can’t we have a ‘I am single Day’ and all wear a badge then when we pass someone at work or out and we like them we say “hello.” You never know you might meet the love of your life at the bus stop, in the doctors or absolutely anywhere you decide to go that day. I think it’s a great idea, don’t you?
