I have to say, there is no excuse for anyone who travels along the road I take to work, to forget it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
There is a bright red sign reminding every car. It’s been there for a week, and is actually an advertisement for a florists! A very good marketing strategy.
I know many people feel that Valentine’s Day is just a gimmick to make money, but I really like it!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want my hubby wasting money on over priced flowers or presents, but it is a great excuse to remind ourselves why we are together.
Life gets so busy these days, so it’s nice to take time out together. Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse for that. Again, I’m not talking expensive restaurants, a takeaway or a meal in the local pub is absolutely fine too!
It’s about spending a few quality hours together over a meal cooked by someone else, and sharing a bottle of wine or fizz together.
I treasure my life with my hubby. I really enjoy his company (most of the time ha ha !!). So will we be doing anything tomorrow? We certainly will.
I have booked a table at our local pub – The Kings Head. https://bit.ly/2ti1dYy. It’s a nice pub and after its forthcoming refit, will be even better.
At the moment, it’s nothing amazingly fancy, but it will be good food, good wine and even more important, good company.
We will spend the evening together talking. Probably planning where we will go if we won the lottery, or what we would like to buy if we had an open purse, or just telling jokes. The important thing is, we won’t be distracted from each other.
Since getting married, we have made sure we take a night away, or just a meal out every few months. It gives us time together, and stops us taking each other for granted.
We work together and live together, which you would think means we are together 24/7. Reality is, we don’t. We both work full time, when we get home, there are jobs to be done and we both like time out separately to enjoy our hobbies! If you ask my hubby, he will include cleaning as one of mine! For the record, that’s not true!! Although it is satisfying when the house is clean and the washing and ironing done, but don’t tell him that!!
I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, to just have some quality hours together, oh and someone else cook my dinner!
I have a bottle of Slimline Fizz on chill too, to enjoy before we go out and when we come home. With work the next day, I know by drinking that, I am guaranteed not to have a hangover!!
So if you have that someone special in your life, why not use tomorrow to show them how important they are to you.
Remember, it’s not about how much you spend in money, it’s about the quality of time together!
Whatever you do tomorrow have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
