Valentines, chocolate and roses for 14th February have never figured in my life - when we were young it was not a 'special occasion', nor commercialised as it is today.
But we've always had plenty of love every day,
so the other things have never mattered.
And the following morning a spark of an idea came to me and I scribbled it down in my 'rough' sketchbook.
If you've never tried this technique of telling the 'other part' of your mind to come up with a solution to a problem then I recommend it - it has served me well all my life.
Here's what developed from my spark of an idea - 'MY HEART MELTS FOR YOU' - includes Love, Chocolate, Roses and a Valentine.
Not marvellous, but I'm fairly pleased with it.
