If I'm lucky, I'll get a card he bought in the garage on the way home and scribbled "guess who xx" on the bottom. Last year he was put under a load of pressure from the kids because we'd recently moved to the land of Valentine madness aka USA. So I got flowers, a card and dinner - at a Thai restaurant that had given out "buy one get one free" meal vouchers and it was bring your own bottle. Food was awful and the place was empty. The kids groaned "oh daaaad! " and laughed til they cried....

This year I've bought the kids cards and told them we're going to do loads of silly funny valentines stuff all day. Hubby is looking relieved and let off the hook...

Is it just Englishmen? My french pals used to go out and buy super sexy underwear ready for valentines...
We are going to a Thai place for Valentines. I think it was an old country store, it is in the middle of nowhere, after 6pm if she is busy she may take the phone off the hook. Someone was in a hurry and she told them if they wanted fast food to go to Mc Donalds.
The food is spectacular !!!

We're going to be cooped up in the car with two warring teenage males as we drive from PA to the Florida Keys. At least at the far end we can put them in separate tents, hopefully at opposite ends of the campsite

We don't normally do much. I normally try and cook something special for the wife.
This year we're off to San Antonio for a long weekend with the kids. Looking forward to it.

I'm pissed off because its OH's birthday and most years it doesn't bother me but this is a big birthday for him and we can't even get a table at a good restaurant ( I am forcing the outing, he wants to stay home). He wants to celebrate when we move back .... Low maintenance man

Sod Valentine's Day!

Don't know if this is a VD rant or a FB rant.

Someone has just posted "shopping for valentine's gifts, not for my valentine, but for J & F's girlfriends". I don't remember how old her sons are, but they're younger than my 12 year old daughter.

WTF What's wrong with a simple card.

I had an email from littlest's school asking for parental valentine's gifts for the teachers!!
Teacher recognition day apparently..... I tell you, I haven't lived here long enough to read stuff like that without laughing my head off!

N1cky. I dread to ask but what is VD???

For a school? Nowt.

Sweets, though, are a better alternative than a shitty little card maybe. That's as far as it should go.

That's the valentine's gift that keeps on giving.
