Hello guys! Unfortunately the whole valentine "thing" slipped my mind. But I came up though with (in my opinion) a great last minute alternative! Although I am wondering what you guys think of it!


I am going to have a romantic dinner for two at my very own home, including fitting valentine decorations of course! I will use Dinein.co.uk to have my food + champaign delivered from our (me and my gf's) favorite premium restaurant. Sounds sweet right! This way I can jump straight to the real business if you know what I mean ;)! Which is obviously getting myself a beer and watch football! Just kidding, but for real though, what are your thoughts on this ;)?

Valentine's Day is an opportunity for people in Canada to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.
