I did not buy much for my Valentine, apart from some cakes with hearts on, but I did bring her her breakfast, give her hot-cross bun and crumpet cut into heart shapes when she got back from work, and cooked beef wellington for tea.

The crocus’ in Lister Park have come out in the last 24 hours. I went past them twice yesterday and the buds were just formed, but closed, but the sun came out today and they were open today.
