This is maybe a matter of saving the best for last! This little series of chats with UK money bloggers has not only been fun, but also insightful, and popular.
We started off with a funny valentines story, followed by one with some male money bloggers.
This one is from Lady Janey who blogs at ladyjaney.co.uk
Here’s what she thinks about getting children involved in Valentines Day, ie. gifting them or giving them cards and expecting them to do the same, for example
Not sure everyone would agree with me but don’t think this is a good idea at all. I work in a school and a lot of the children either ignore or dread Valentine’s Day, as it can seem a really unfair popularity contest and cause a lot of unnecessary anxiety and stress.
I also got personal and asked, what are your views on your significant other’s spending habits at Valentines?
I don’t think hubby could ever spend enough on moi! ;
Do you think couples should agree on a spending limit for valentines? Why or why not?
Yes if one has a tendency to spend more than the other. Nothing more embarrassing then pitching up with a dandelion when they’ve stretched to a dozen red roses!
I asked for her views on the statement that ‘men are rubbish at choosing/buying proper Valentine’s gifts.
It’s true. Luckily my hubby is much better at taking a hint than he is buying gifts!
Now the Fun Bit
- Share a funny Valentine story-
Will a poem do? Absolutely Janey, take it away! Cue some love music! You’re gonna love this.
You’re the jam for my dodger
You’re the icing on my cake
You’re the peanut for my butter
And the 99 for my flake.
You’re the cinnamon for my whirl
And the orange for my juice
You’re the apple for my pie
And the chocolate for my mousse
Without you I am nothing
We make each other whole
You are my one and only
My life, my heart, my soul.
You’re the milk for my cookie
You’re the cheese for my wine
You’re the cherry for my bun
And the gin for my lime.
You’re the strawberries for my cream
You’re the pudding for my rice
You’re the pick for my mix
And the sugar for my spice.
You’re the bee for my honey
And one and one is two
We were meant to be together
And my heart belongs to you.
What a lovely poem! Don’t you agree?
Tell us the one thing (that money can buy) that you wish you could get for Valentines Day OR share a pic of something you want or plan to give this Valentines Day (family friendly please).
And here’s wishing you all a lovely love day from Joleisa and Janey

From the girls at Jloeisa-Penny Pinchers’ Paradise, all the very best in love this year and always. Be mindful if you get children involved. Also be careful with the expectations you place on others. Be cheerful givers (and receivers too)
Have a great week!
