I hope you’re all feeling the love today, regardless of your marital status.
Valentine wishes/declarations/expressions etc should be expressed between all those you love; partners, family and close friends.
As a child I used to receive cards in the mail written from two mystery ‘Valentines’ one of which had scarily similar handwriting to my Mom, the other, the same penmanship as my Grandmother. I’ll just put that down to coincidence!
I just wanted to put this out there….
Regardless of what your plans are this holiday, whether surprised, disappointed or not fussed over the whole “Hallmark” holiday thing. What do YOU do to express your love on Valentine’s?
Please help me out here….
It’s all too easy as a woman (speaking for myself here) to expect a card, roses to arrive on my desk at work, or to hope for some romantic meal – all lovingly planned by my other half. But what do *I* do to express MY love for my man?
Errr, this year I haven’t picked up a card in time. I know he wouldn’t appreciate flowers all that much, I don’t have a dime to spend on a meal out for the pair of us, and well, I cook romantic dinners every night, don’t I?
Can I use the excuse of “I don’t need just one day to show you I love you dear”!?
Yep – I am beginning to sound like my other - and frankly - if today is anything to go by, better half.
My better half who bends to my requests of wanting to be wined and dined on a rainy Monday in February, to make a huge dent in his credit card, time out from his work schedule, and yes, I’ll have the Champagne and Lobster with that too, please.
Am I the only gal feeling guilty today, and that this holiday has totally sucked me in?
Suggestions of what I can do to even the ‘love score’ would be gratefully recieved.
And for any guys out there reading this – flowers are nice surprises all year round, not just for Valentine’s!
And Mr S, if you are reading this. I am happy with the fries babe, I don’t need a Lobster to know you love me!
I love you very much, with all my heart. Forever. xxx
