OK so I am not, it has to be said, the biggest fan of Valentine’s day. Not that I’m not up for a bit of the old romancing, but the thought of being romantic on demand kind of has me scratching my head in bemusement.
Yet it’s difficult, unless you live under a rock, to not get caught up in the love fest that permeates the weeks leading up to the 14th.
So this year I’ve decided to give in, hold my hands up in surrender and give it up to good old St Val. But, being as my diary is as full as an egg and liable to change at the drop of a hat, I’ve decided that Andrew and I are going to celebrate as and when the mood takes us. Being sure to take advantage of the fizz, chocolate and restaurant offers that abound at this time of year pf course 🙂
The first on our hit list of romance was a rather lovely bistro called Westminster Kitchen. Now I’m afraid that we were not in London for the best of reasons. Those of you who have watched my latest vlog
will know that a family member is in St Thomas’ Hospital, and I can’t say that it was the most relaxed and romantic of meals. But hey, life has thrown us some really sh*tty curve balls of late so we are determined to have as much ‘us’ time as we possibly can – even if that’s a quick meal before catching yet another ruddy tube!

In case your wondering, this outfit shoot was taken a few days after the rug got metaphorically pulled out from under our feet, but it’s exactly what I wore for my not so wonderful London adventure. Apart from the shoes, there’s no way I would try and negotiate the hell that is the underground escalators in anything other than flats!
So there you have it, me giving it up to St Val in my own slightly-bemused-at-the-whole-thing way. How will you be giving it up to St Val, or does the whole thing leave you cold? Let me know what you have planned in the comments.
