1. A Valentine's card arrives by post from an affectionate mystery person.
2. Katie, in an unusual moment of Not-Thinking-Things-Through, buys a generous bunch of helium heart balloons right before we go out to lunch. They raise a few smiles as they bob in her wake.
3. I am presented with a shiney red bag containing: (a) Large padded red velvet heart-shaped box of chocolates. (b) Copy of Charles Addams' My Crowd previously admired by me in the window of a second hand book shop.
