However, one of my main Valentine's memories is from Primary School; do you remember making cards for every occasion in school? I must have been nine and I made a Valentine's Day card in school with little springy hearts. My cards had usually always gone to my parents but this year a few of my friends we're starting to give them out to boys, real life boys! When I say give them out, I of course mean sneak in at lunch time and hide them in their tray.
I decided that I wanted to give my card to a boy in the class, lets call him Bob. I had liked Bob for a while and had quite a crush on him at the time. After school everyone put their chairs on top of the tables; I hung back until everyone had left class and popped back in to put my card on his chair. I came out of school and I must have been too giddy and gave the game away to my Mum. Apparently she didn't feel that Bob was the right boy to receive my first Valentine's card and was quite disappointed with my choice! As a young impressionable girl I began to think that maybe she was right, was Bob really the boy for me? Would he be considerate and respectful? Could I see us holding hands in the playground?
I cannot be sure how I came to the decision but
Disclaimer - My mother has never since interfered in my choice of boy, looking back she was, in fact, correct. Mums only ever want the very best for their children!
