Valentine’s Day: it’s not always easy

  1. Your msg today re V Day was absolutely spot-on, Jon. I had found it very hard in the past, but a friend and I have commandeered it and made it a day to celebrate friendship. Tbh, I’m happier on these occasions here in Spain, where there’s hardly any evidence of red satin hearts and roses, compared with the UK!

  2. What a wonderful message for Valentine’s Day, Jon. I do find it a difficult day with no one special to think of as a Valentine and your intro expressing your reluctance to bring it up and then your good wishes reminded me that telling someone we care about them can make them feel REALLY loved even if we might feel it is taking quite a risk to speak so openly and warmly to them! Thanks! I really feel like you are my Valentine!
