A bit of Love

Happy Valentine day to you all. Hope those of you who go for the whole day of romance thing have been truly spoiled by your love.

I went for a walk along the Southsea beach and saw this little beach kiosk which is shut for the season but someone has made use of the blackboards outside:



Made me smile.

I think my local charity shop must have caught wind of my love for their crazy window displays and they did a special valentines one for me:


Oh yes a display of Elvis donations! :o)


Hubby also left me a little Valentines gift this morning  - covered by red heart balloons, cheesy yes but made me laugh. My gift was a silver charm for my Pandora bracelet.


And a little overheard conversation this morning in the newsagents -  A man in his early 30s buying a rose and a bottle on wine:
Shop Assistant: Last minute Valentines gift is it?
Man: "Oh no, I booked a fancy hotel for us both in France last weekend"
Shop Assistant "Ooh lovely, was it a nice trip?"
Man: "No, forgot me passport didn't I, we ended up having to spend the weekend in a grotty B&B in Dover"


Finally for those who cant stand the whole Valentines thing :

Big Love to you all

  28. Thought of you the other day as they were playing Elvis very loudly in one of the charity shops I regularly go to which was far far better than the usual rubbish they play at top volume (namely Rod Stewart singing the old standards - bleurgh!).

    Good old hubby. How sweet. I got a handmade card and a double chocolate swiss roll from Tesco's!

  31. Oh this reminds me of the Elvis window our local charity shop had. Now that was a work of art. It was huge and had everything imaginable. This was a few years ago though. I will keep an eye out for a repeat performance and see what lovelies I can snaffle for you.
