i don't DO Valentine's Day. Is it more of an American thing?  i think that among others that we have been given a business focus down the years - it's all buy, buy,buy.  Not my thing, never has been, come to think of it.  i only had one card, sent i strongly suspected by my mother, after a discussion! So that doesn't count.  None of my lovers/boyfriends were that romantically inclined.
Having said all that, i did actually send a You are my Valentine text to my lovely Mark this year!  *He was thrilled, i'm delighted to say* :D

Friday Five's have been varied in content over the years, but are always interesting.

1. Do you make up a dinner plan for the coming week? No, not really. It does depend on what is in the fridge and freezer.

2. Do you make up a grocery shopping list and stick to it when shopping? Pretty much, but i'm always open to what's on sale.

3. What is one thing that you always buy, but never write down on a list? i do a large proportion of my groceries online, so every week etc items are automatically included. Usually milk, bread and eggs (if i haven't any)

4. Is there anything that you always think you are out of and come home with it to discover you already have a year’s supply on hand? No. i'm more likely to underestimate if it's an under-the-sink item or a tinned one. i do have a regular order for toilet rolls with Amazon, so i never run out and the price is very good.  Note to self:  Toilet Duck Cleaner (just finished the last!)

5. Do you get your groceries delivered? Yes, all the time.  It is so much easier when your mobility isn't good. Online access is invaluable if you don't have a car and you pay only one way with their delivery charge, rather than two-way-taxis .  i do have two or three accounts that i don't use much but can easily compare for availability and prices.  i do have a good Co-op just down the road, so excellent.  Their bread & bakery selection is really good.

Like i said, interesting what we think about - right now, i'm starting to think about what is for dinner, and realising i have forgotten lunch again!  Must grab very quick bite, so that's it for now.  Hope you're having a great weekend!
This is called 'You make me smile'
