Valentines day.

Im not sure why people find this day so depressing, i never really think about it, i dont think ive ever had a valentines…apart from some guy from cov that bought me a jack skeleton model. romantic bastard.

I just use the day for an excuse usually to make someones day a bit better by sending a card and letting them know that i love them đŸ™‚ or this year for example im meeting up with an old friend that i havent seen for probally over a year (even though hes a bastard and nearly killed me). BUTTTT i usually have fun on valentines and go out with friend or have a night in infront of the telebox.

I did make some lovely cupcakes though yum yum
