We don't normally 'do' Valentine's Day in our house but thanks to a strategically placed display of
flowers in the supermarket, I was presented with a lovely bunch of flowers this year.
While there's nothing wrong with the idea of expressing appreciation for those we love,
Valentine's Day has been hijacked by the peddlers of all sorts of goods from flowers to wine,
from chocolates to jewellery. It also smacks of smugness which must make it somewhat sad
for those without anyone to celebrate it with.
