Well another year, another St Valentine's - it's very commercial these days, but I felt I wanted to get into the spirit of things.

There is definitely a special lady that is certainly worth the 'special treatment' - just hope she really appreciated the gift :-)

Following the hard work of the recent GNS conference in Miami, I wanted to really show my support and appreciation of her dedication towards the conference show (she managed single-handedly to manage, co-ordinate and actually do the hands-on work towards our group's contribution to the conference show!!!).  It is such as shame that the department doesn’t reflect on this work – shambolic!! 

I felt that there was no better way to show this (well MY) appreciation with some great gifts - the first thing that came to my mind was good ol' Thornton's.  As I didn't have the time to visit a store personally, I decided to go along the pretty standard route of ordering via their website.  It truly was great, but I still like to look at the displays in person!!! (They certainly do product the greatest chocolate - okay behind the Belgium and Swiss choco-makers, I guess!). 

Anyway I am waffling...basically I ordered a nice 21" (yes 21 inch!!!) teddy bear - and it certainly looked gorgeous/cute on the website, and a nice selection of classic Thornton’s chocolates within a Valentine's Heart box.   A nice wee gesture methinks.  I won’t state the sum here (but as I said, she was definitely worth this amount!).

I wanted to purchase something that would be a treat (the chocolates!) and also keeps (the teddy bear!) - I think I came up trumps on both, don't you think?

I think she really appreciated it - I think part of the fun of St Valentine's gifts is the not-knowing on the day and therefore I didn't have a message, just the gifts.  (I've been told this really works!).  Anyway, I did send a text in the evening of the 14th Feb, just to ensure she knew it was for me - can never be too careful these days!

I think she is a charming, intelligent and all-round lovely lady - and certainly would like to know her better (as friends - of course!)...  oh and the deep purpose of the gifts, well it wasn’t because of Valentine’s but more of “I think you are appreciated by some people – keep it up!!” type of message – and this is sooooo true, so you know who you are – keep going, I certainly am learning a lot being around you!
