    Talking Valentines Day: )

    So Normally we don't celebrate it as i'm a firm believer in if you can't show your love every day why just chose one day of the year.

    DH is a truck driver so all he does is listen to the radio and this morning when he phoned he asked if i would be in office at about 11 i said yes assuming that he would be ringing me back then.... Instead the guy from Radiowest comes in with a bottle of Champagne which i can't drink and said congratulations i was like OHHHHHHHHHH and they left only to return a few minutes later with a huge bunch of roses and chocolates that DH had won as part of the love or money competition. Then he took a couple of photo's and told me he had recorded my reaction!!

    The guys at work are asking what it's for forgetting obviously that it is valentines tomorrow.



    I feel so loved right now and won't be able to wipe the smile off my face for the rest of the day

    So my question is, do you celebrate it and if so what do you do, or if not what are your reasons?

    That's awesome! You lucky duck!

    Hubby and I have been together for 10 years now (we have always celebrated the anniversary of the day we met 9/02/02 even now we are married, we still celebrate the meeting more than the wedding) so we rarely celebrate Valentines. It's just too close and we both forget. But we have a lot of romance in our lives anyway.

    Its funny, he just asked today if we were doing it, and I said I had a little something, but obviously we weren't, if he was asking me today. And he said 'how about you give me a free pass this year, but for the rest of our lives, I'll never forget it again'. He's cute.

    I really don't mind the day passing unnoticed, but have to say a special breaky or a bunch of flowers on V day can feel pretty special.

    They are gorgeous roses

    We do celebrate, usually we go out to dinner, or will hire out a nice hotel room for the night. This year, DP has something planned, i'm not sure if I should be scared or excited, he isn't letting on what he has planned, but made sure I had a sitter for tomorrow night well in advance eeeek

    Gorgeous

    DP and I don't really do Valentine's Day, although through some divine providence we both have the day off so we will hopefully have a dirty day in bed and maybe go out for dinner locally if we're so inclined

    How lovely

    DP and I usually do something small, like dinner out (our anniversary is in March so feels a lil silly celebrating V day with a bang). But he's taking me to a hotel next weekend for V day. We both need a night off so we're sending the boy to stay with my mum and we'll go out for dinner and have cocktails then stay at the hotel.

    Happy Anniversary

    We met on Valentines day kind of but didn't start dating till the 28th of Feb he never remembers those dates though, so i'm really surprised he did this, Had just made my day completely and i don't care if i don't do any work for the rest of the arvo and just sit and eat the chocolate
