Jesus - If you end up sleeping in the car tonight you know why.

A fooking present like that is an insult. Either do it properly or don't do it at all.

You're right, two Cadbury Cream eggs would be a better choice.

Card Yes
Present No
Flowers Definite No

I do hate these Retailers' Guilt days. They've even started sneaking in Grandparents' Days as well.

We have fresh flowers in this house 51 weeks a year. Not this week though.

I did read that the two weeks running up to Valentine's day are the two most popular weeks of the year for partners to be dumped. Wonder why?

Going to get flowers and champers. Then going to cook.

Put the kids to bed, then a three course meal with champers. And the piece d'resistance. Low lights, candles, soft music. Then going to into the hallway, strip off, put some black lines under my nose and change into a pair of tight leopard skin pants and crawl back into the dining room making a growling noise.

Never fails. Grrrrrr.

I have left a card in the letter box for her, I will cook her a big dinner and have made dessert myself for after. We will watch a rom com, then as the credits roll I will kiss her on the ear and whisper "does this mean I can go out with the lads all weekend?"

Wifey has said no need for a card or flowers since she finds it all very commercial.

I have promised her 100% attention tonight instead of tapping away on the laptop.

We did valentines day yesterday - cos I'm not around on Mondays.
We exchanged cards and I got a really nice box of Lir chocolates.
He also got breakfast in bed :D
I even cut the toast into heart shapes :o

We've got a big wedding anniversary coming up in April and we'll be making much more of an effort for that.

Easy mistake to make.

You should all consider yourselves very lucky, I have to remember 2 Valentines days as my wife is Chinese and they have a version of Valentines Day later in the year. Its not easy getting a dozen red roses in China but I did it. I'm just recoverring from 2 new years, and Chinese New Year they buy presents too - thank God for contracting this is costing me a fortune.

All one big commercial waste of time/money. Even the kids at school are buying teacher a card/gift now FFS, I had to explain to Mini-R last night it's not another Xmas event when she wanted to know where her present was :rolleyes:

Me and Mrs R celebrate our wedding anniversary, Valentines is just another day.

Please no! She never! shuts up! Someone described her as like a waterfall.

Phew! She's sent it to all her male colleagues, Yank style.

Lucky escape there...
