Valentines day is fast approaching next week.  Personally I really aren’t one for huge romantic gestures with roses and meals out.  I’d much rather have a well thought out gift and a night in with a special meal. As I have got older I’ve learnt to appreciate small well thought out gifts. Gifts that I have a connection with and have been picked with some thought about who I am and what I like doing; things that will cheer me up. It isn’t always to do with the cost of an item.

This year I am hoping to continue with this little series of posts sharing 5 things I have lived each month. January to me always seems like such a long month.
