Today is the 36th anniversary of the day that I met my darling wife, Joy, in the Cricketers pub at Longparish. Yesterday was Valentine’s Day. Which day do you think is more important to me? Yet another commercial exploit-the-public day, or the day that I met my true love?
Valentine’s day is just like every other day of the year to me.
My love for Joy is continuous and endless! Loving Day is EVERY day for me.
To prove my point, I just received an email from an only vendor entitled “Valentines Sale EXTENDED”. You can guess the content.
So please excuse the following rant. I get really wound up by commercial days. There are more of them: Valentine’s, Trick or Treat, Father’s, Mother’s, Christmas, Easter, Black Monday, Black Friday, Red Wednesday, Digital Tuesday, Triffick Thursday, Gullibility Saturday….. OK, I’m making them up now, but you get my point.
In recent years, I have managed to come to terms with Trick or Treat, which is a robbery with menaces event imported from America. I actually look forward to the evening.
It is time to drag out one of my favourite recipes: mustard filled chocolates.
Hahahaha kids! Here’s a trick from me!
