Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m a big fan of Valentine’s Day – which is surprising as I’m really not a relationship person (let’s just say… I’m a Samantha). But growing up I always received sweet cards and tasty treats from my parents on Valentine’s Day, and I have a lot of happy memories. Besides, I’ve always liked the idea of having a whole day just to tell people you love them – love and be loved!
A lack of overlapping time in our schedules meant that Mr Laila and I went for special Valentine’s picnic breakfast on Friday morning – a day early, but we missed the crowds and had the place to ourselves. I love Regents Park – even when the flowers aren’t in full bloom (it’s a bit early at the moment) the gardens and layout are so beautiful and it’s so easy to get lost exploring. Plus, it’s dog haven!
This is one of the more romantic Valentine’s I’ve had in recent years (despite the fact it looks like I’m by myself in these photos – my sweetheart is camera-shy). Last year I was performing and partying in sequins and Minnie Mouse ears – seems I can’t escape them as I’ve got a similar outfit for Quizney tomorrow (and a similar number of rehearsals)! Let me know what you’re up to for Valentine’s and I hope you all have a good one. X
