I had planned a special dinner for two, you know the sort of thing, best crystal, a glowing log fire, my man's favourite fodder, sirloin with pepper sauce. Ah well, it wasn't to be. The steak is still a block of ice, the fire strangely flickering and the crystal, still packed away after Christmas, was just not handy enough to be found.
But did it stop us celebrating Valentin's Day? Not a bit of it. We popped a cork, ate a healthy salad and tucked into the cherry cheesecake which was a meal in itself.
And the best of it is, we've got steak to look forward to tomorrow - yippee! It just goes to show, what you don't have today, is still there for the taking (or in this case, the eating).
Now there is Forrest Gump on the TV. Will the joy never end! Happy Valentine's Day!
