Valentine's Day Times Three

I'm not a fan of the kinds of valentine's day cards you get in shops.  I'd much rather find an image I like and then add some text I wrote myself.

So I went off and found a decent site to let me edit cards(Photobox) , put one together, and had it sent.  I'd tried a couple of different formats, and the only thing that had annoyed me was that text was lost when you switched between them, so I had to copy it to notepad and back.

Some of you are already clapping your hands to your forehead, as you foresee what happened - yup, that's right, I managed to copy the same text in twice, giving me Text Block A, Text Block A and Text Block C.  Not good.

So off I went to the internet, found the card, updated it with the correct text, and hit buy.  And then discovered that they were backed up, and not likely to send it until Friday.  Not something I was willing to count on

At which point an advert for MoonPig.Com came on TV, and it turned out that they promised next-day posting.

So off I went and ordered a _third_ copy of the card.

Which happily arrived on Thursday

And I breathed a sigh of relief.

(And another one when Julie liked it)

Oh - and she got me the best card ever - I don't think I could ask for a better cover than a graph of hearts and the tagline "Our love is positively correlated".  I'm a very happy man :->
