|My fab Valentine's card from MrP - do you see what he did there?|
I had a lovely Valentine's with MrP: We refuse to give any money to the Valentine's industry, and don't want to be pressured into spending loads of money so we don't buy cards or presents. We always make a card for each other and make an effort to spend time with one another. This year's meal was ridiculously cheesy (but damn tasty) enchiladas with some very tasty wine

I hope my Valentine likes her presents - I made them with my very own hands! MrP couldn't decide whether girl bloggers swapping presents was hilarious or weird. I personally think it's GREAT.
Though the whole time I was reading the book I couldn't get this out of my head....
I hosted a craft club: I was getting a little frustrated at trying to meet people at 'meeting people' events where we just got drunk, and no one seemed to really 'make friends' so I decided to take matters into my own hands and start a craft club. The name is very cheesy - 'Crafty Sew and Sews' but I think my sister (who came up with it) was pretty much dead on as it really seems to have caught on!

My sister Emma also came and, because she was a little late due to a glasses/keys emergency, she missed the bit where I explained that you have to use two cardboard circles to make the pom pom. She didn't realise until she had been winding her wool arounnd only one circle for a while so decided to go with it, despite doing it wrong, and ended up with the neatest pom pom of the lot!! I have such pom pom envy:
