Happy Valentine’s Day

Who was St Valentine?   There are several different versions of his story.  He was  a Roman in the time of the Emperor Claudius who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity and died on 14th February 269 AD. 

February 14th has come to be known as Valentine’s Day and cards, chocolates and red roses are often presented to the love of one’s life.  We are passing up on the highly expensive red roses and will be dining out tonight at a local restaurant, toasting each other with a glass of bubbly or two!!

“How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.  I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach………..”
