Valentine's Day

So, on Valentine's Day eve, I would suggest that you don't rant on to your husband about how Valentine's Day is a total waste of time and money and frankly if anyone ever wanted to spend $40 on flowers how you'd much rather they took that money and bought you a couple of tea-camellias, or maybe three blueberry bushes.
Because when you wake up in the morning and find flowers, a card and a chocolate breakfast in your favorite Shelly teacups, not only are you are going to look deeply, deeply ungrateful, but there is also nothing you can say or do to save the situation.

It is a good thing that my husband enjoys laughing at my discomfort and loves me to bits in equal measure.

Yeah. He's a lucky man.


And I am without doubt, the luckiest girl in the world as well. 

Love you, my sweet, and thanks.  I never, ever expected such a lovely, wonderful, beautiful surprise (obviously!)

I said the same thing to my husband - he stuck to the rules, but Val's eve I went shopping and justified buying a gorgeous bangle I fell in love with by telling him it's my Valentine's present!!
I also got a long sleep in, a day at the beach as a family... and to not have to cook dinner. Bliss. :o)

I am laughing so much! Big boy has been lectured all day about the massive bunch of flowers he bought me, especially as we are so very, very short of cash.

Gotta love 'em.

Awww, what a sweetheart. Happy V Day!

Is that almost the same as telling your to be husband, at the time, that you would prefer he didn't give you "dead things", ie flowers, a nice plant is preferred?

Um no, course I didn't do that. Needless to say I have never received any flowers and very few plants from him.

Kind Regards

What a lovely man!

I didn't even know it was Valentines day but we did spend all day at the TG house planting blueberries, grapes,tea and coffee bushes. Just hope it rains up there this week or all will be lost.
