the romantics

I don't go in for sentimentality. It actually annoys the crap out of me. I don't like clich├ęs or empty gestures and it probably goes without saying that I really don't like the crazy commercial crapola that is Valentine's Day. 

Having said that, I love my man. Adore him wholeheartedly (you would too, he's a bit marvellous.)

We don't do flowers on Feb 14th, we sometimes do cards and we'll take any excuse for chocolate. How's this, though, for a gift of love?


We've ordered seeds and are planning quite a sizable patch, one that'll hopefully feed the family and all that, but in the meantime, it's getting on in February and it's time to plant lettuces in Australia. So while I'm waiting for the seeds, Adam worked through a rainy Sunday afternoon yesterday and put in a salad bar garden for me. 





He is ten types of terrific. 



So maybe I can stretch to just a little silliness….


(The kids love these! I found them at Aldi last week. Lamb and pasta salad for dinner tonight.)

Do you go in for Valentine's day? (Does anyone?!)
