Talking Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Is everyone feeling all lovey dovey today?

What are your plans for tonight? Anyone got engaged?
We're staying in as the Amazing Race is on tonight and I want my dose of Phil for the week
Mr S is at work and I've been kept occupied this morning hunting for things he's hidden round the house. I still have one chocolate and a 'box' to find

Well Happy Valentines everyone!

This is our first valenties since we got married!

Last year I treated Hubby to a weekend in Venice! What a great place....However this year will be more modest
(Boy emmigrating gives your funds a bashing lol)
So its a meal for the three of us Me Hubby and DS......No one reminds you that when you leave the UK you also leave the babysitters lol

But wouldn't have it anyother way

Aw. That's lovely. It will be the same for Jan and Neill .

No valentine for us really. I spent the day drafting a love letter to environmental health. Oh deep joy. Husband stayed off work coz he is worryingly stressed out because of noise.

Time off for good behaviour?



So !

He has been sent off to fetch some vino collapso even though it is Monday & as a treat I will give him a game of chess. Mental I know. I can't stick the game having been force fed it as a kid but he has expressed an interest to learn more, so I will do that small thing for him.

I'll tell you the same as I told the girls at work this morning when they asked if I got anything for Valentines:

"We've been married for nearly 25 years, so what do you think?"

They then asked if I got a kiss at least, I replied:

"Yup, I got the usual 'I'm off to work, see you later' peck"!

Still, as mentioned elsewhere, I then treated myself to a ticket to the Elton John concert in November

Congrats to all of you for who this day has extra-special meaning

Bah. Humbug. Misery. etc etc etc

I'm single as you can tell!

Wish I did have someone to be with today, but I don't. Can't speak for others, but being single on Valentines Day sucks as I see everybody else happy and paired up, and it makes me feel incomplete & lonely.

**Sighs**

I'm going to go back to the TV now. By one constant companion.
