Sunday, you snuck up on me out of the blue. Really. And what about that mysterious
overrated* Valentine’s Day that was supposed to be this week? Passed by in the blink of an eye. In case you don’t care to find out about my exciting way of spending yesterday – what? You really don’t?? – no need to worry: I’ll leave the stage for the many great posts I came across this past week to shine. Let me know your favourites, too.
* no single lady hatred here. It’s not like you couldn’t make it a great day for yourself after all.
