Happy Valentines Day!!

So did you all have a nice day this Valentine's??? Did anyone get anything special?? We aren't huge believers in Valentines so you can imagine my surprise and delight when my Hubby walked through the door with a dozen red roses for me...personally I think he is a little mental for paying that price...but it made me smile big time.

dozen roses for valentines day
My roses... :-)

As for the allotment...not much going on there really. I had another delivery of manure yesterday so thought I would get it sorted straight away...I also decided it would be a good idea to extend my manure pile a little for more room...this would require me cutting some wood to hold the board in place.

It was wet, cold and windy. The wood was wet and so was the saw so it kept sticking and being very annoying...not one for much patience I decided after struggling to get half way through cutting it that it would be a good idea to stamp on it to finish it off.

This may have gone better if the wood hadn't been suspended between the raised bed and wasn't so long. Oh don't worry I stamped on it and broke the wood to them required length...but I hit it with such a force that the longer end of the wood shot up and smacked me on the side of the head and face.

I didn't concuss myself and a quick look revealed that no-one else was dumb enough to be up the plot in the poring rain but boy did they miss a good laugh at me beating myself up with bits of wood in the rain...anyway I thought you would all enjoy my little mishap.. maybe you have done something as silly as this in the past....although I wouldn't be surprised if I'm the only one!! My Hubby and parents dutifully laughed at the Hubby got a punch for it!!

Still a little tender....having to brush my hair VERY carefully!!

Happy Valentines!!!!!



  1. Love the roses. My hubby tried to take me to a nice dinner on Saturday but didn't realize we needed reservations if we wanted to eat before 10pm. I was pretty happy that he tried he is not much of a guy to do that kind of thing.

  2. Pretty flowers. We don't make much of a fuss over valentines day, cards and that's about it.
    You aren't alone with your little mishap. I've done silly things like that too. some have gone unnoticed while others have had Glad you didn't get hurt too bad

  3. I've cracked myself on the head a few times just like that. The only thing I could ever do was laugh about it because everyone else did. It's the kind of thing that is indeed funny, but the pain always seems to disagree.

  4. What a beautiful roses! Happy Valentine's Day to you Tanya :)

  5. Oh dear, I hope you're not too sore. Your roses are lovely. No romance for me this Valentine's Day, we never bother with cards or presents.

  6. I know what you mean about being glad no-one was around. I always think the worst bit of doing something like that is that someone may be watching! Lovely roses!

  7. Thanks all for your's nice to know I'm not the only one who does some silly things.

    For the record...we never bother with Valentines day as a rule either...which kind of made the roses extra special as it just isn't something we do!!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
