February is generally a pretty dismal month. The glow of the new year holidays have definitely worn off, you're still stinging from January's credit card bill and the weather just won't give!
Which is why I think the holiday gods have given us Pancake Day and Valentine's Day in the same week. Clearly they needed to give us a reason to carry on until Easter and the suns deigns to shine again.
Every year on Valentine's Day, regardless of whether I was coupled up or not, I always gave flowers to my mum and went out to dinner with my friends. Who says that Valentine's Day should only celebrate romantic couples? It always irked me that there's no official Friendship Day (apparently it's on 30 July, but there's no real press about it?!), when friends are just as important as lovers!
Regardless of how you spend Valentine's Day it's always nice to show those you love how much you care about them. So here's some (virtual!) flowers to show you, our readers and our customers, just how much we love you!

We hope you have a very happy Valentine's Day - whichever way you spend it!
