Forget flowers. The country girl does not want roses unless it is a rose plant to go in her garden for what use are cut flowers which will die?
Forget fancy chocolates. The country girl would prefer a large bar of dairy milk and the money spent on something she really wants.
Forget a spa voucher for a manicure. The spa therapist will eye the country girl’s short (and often muddy) nails with horror and will faint when the country girl tells her that after this, she is off to ride the horse/weed the garden/muck out the chickens/walk the dogs.
What the country girl really wants is more kit for the great outdoors and preferably a more luxurious version than what she would normally buy herself to make it a special treat.
Certainly this country girl is hoping to hear 3 very important little words this Valentine ’s Day…..Le Chameau wellies…..
