Hello everyone! Very Happy Hope your all well Smile

Just wondered what everyones plans are for valentines day? If any? Or dont you really bother with it?

OH is paying for me to have my hair done, cut and coloured which I cant wait as its not been done for a good 6 months Shocked So it'll be lovely!
Also going to have a nice night in together, home-cooked meal (3-courses - bruschetta with caramelised onion and goats cheese OR garlic mushrooms.... followed by steak, half tomato, onion rings, homemade chips, garlic bread... and a nice pudding to finish! maybe some yummy thorntons chocs! )

Last year our daughter was 4 weeks old... and we spent valentines night taking it in turns with her as she was very colicky and screamed for 6 solid hours Shocked
So going to really enjoy this year Smile

Aww that sounds lovely.

I will be home alone but my husband doesn't do valentines day anyway (he is not at all romantic).

Chocolates sound yummy might have to buy myself some and indulge.

Have a lovely day and night.

We don't really do anything for valentines day. Maybe a card but that's it. It's my birthday this Wednesday so I think it's a bit much to expect my OH to get me something for two occasions in just over a week lol x

We usually just get a card for valentines day. Our anniversary of the date we got together is the 16th so we usually celebrate that instead when everything isn't busy and overpriced. I've had a look online tonight though at my favourite restaurant and it's already booked up for that night Sad.

Reading about your meal though Tessytoo, I might have to get OH to cook me something tasty Smile.

To me valentines day is just a commercial holiday created by companies to make more money out of people. Dan and I do not need a specific day to show how much we love each other x
This is my person opinion and I am not setting out to offend anyone btw x

Ben's taking me out for a posh lunch whilst Izzy is at nursery on the 13th (we're teachers so we're on half term). On Valentine's Day, my best friend and I are going to see 'The Gruffalo's Child' (it was her birthday present for Izzy) and then she's babysitting whilst Ben and I go to the cinema. We don't usually worry too much about presents but it never hurts to have an excuse to have a nice meal for a treat! x

We just usually do cards and thats about it, im not really a big fan of valentines day.. I would rather make a big deal of our anniversary. We always do something for that.

We will probably get some sweets in and watch some films which will be nice xx

This is exactly how I see it.....we don't even bother with cards anymore, it just seems so daft! I always think of it as a 'teenage' kind of thing, young love haha!

Again, this is just my opinion and not meant to offend!

xx
