I have been married for 17 years and have never once received a Valentine’s Day gift. But don’t feel bad for me, some people just aren’t romantically inclined. It is what it is.

Today I’d like to celebrate this LOVEliest of days with all of my wonderful readers and wish you all a HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY. I have grown to love you all and wish I knew you in person.

Just for you…….


Who doesn’t love red roses on Valentine’s Day?


Chocolates in a heart-shaped box always say I Love You…


For the girls – almost as good as diamonds


For the boys – hubba hubba!


Cheers to you all. I am so glad to have met you all through the blogosphere.


Here’s a tune for you!

  1. I have only known you for a very short time Selma but it has certainly been a pleasure. I won’t be getting anything either and that’s fine with me. I’m not a big fan of the day myself but I certainly hope yours is happy and all that you want it to be. Chocolate and champagne….mmmmmm…..two of my most favourite things.


  2. Why thank you Selma dear! I don’t have a Valentine (except my 15-yr.-old son & my big dog) so it is always lovely to receive good thoughts from others. I return your sentiments!

    What truly matters is the everyday, isn’t it?

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you!


  3. Since I married, I never give nor receive Valentine gifts … because we remember the time that you marked Valentine’s Day simply by sending a card ANONYMOUSLY to the object of your desires … (and, let’s admit it, feeling smug when you received three or more! 🙂 )

    Anyway, it’s Lent … if you keep it, can you stand just looking at that box of Belgian chox till Easter?

    Have a cyber-hug anyway!!


  4. Nearly forgot … I was in a shop the other day offering Valentine cards … on a ‘two for the price of one’ basis!

    Obviously, aimed at philanderers! 🙂


  5. You would make a fantastic celebrity for never ceasing to express your gratitude towards your “fans.” They don’t come very often.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you too.


  6. Why the hell did I give up chocolate for Lent? Happy Thursday Selma! Oh, and happy Self Love Day! And… Happy Valentine’s Day.

    Fantastic tune. In reply I give you my favourite

    (Tune of love, not video!)


  7. GYPSY – I think we should rename it Chocolate and Champagne day just for us. Now that would be something worth celebrating!

    KATE – every day is a blessing. There is so much wonder to be found round every corner. I am trying to train myself to live more in the present rather than worrying what’s going to happen in the future. I agree with you so much – it’s the everyday that matters.

    TRAVELRAT – I remember those days of sending cards to your secret admirer. It was so much fun. The funniest ones were those with the really bad variations on the ‘Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue’ theme. If I’m still blogging next year I might hold the really bad Valentine’s Card message contest. That would be hilarious!

    That is too funny. 2 for the price of 1. Talk about keeping your options open!

    MELEAH – and to you too. Hope you’re enjoying your break.

    BRITT – those oversized cards crack me up, especially the musical ones. When I was 18 I got one with Elvis singing ‘Love Me Tender.’ It kept working for about 10 years afterwards.

    CHRIS – I really do mean it. I am grateful to everyone who stops by. You all make me happy and I just wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate it. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!

    BEC – there is nothing like Otis Redding on Valentine’s Day. What a fantastic song. I haven’t heard it for ages. He could sing, couldn’t he?


  8. Happy Valentine’s Day Selma!

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog awhile ago, it has been a joy reading your stuff!
