Hearts everywhere we go. Does this raise expectations followed by disappointments?
How will you show your love today?
By coming home from work late, tired, getting a takeaway then falling asleep in front of the telly whilst Mrs ALISK tells me how siht & unromantic I am compared to all her friends & family members.
Left flowers and a card in the kitchen when I left this morning tho, so I can tick Valentines off.
Update - Mrs ALISK has informed me / confirmed that as Baby ALISK is ill/grumpy/screaming, she & I are having a takeaway tonight and will try to do a Valentines meal tomorrow night.
Mrs ALISK had hidden a M&S box of ‘I couldn’t BEAR life without you’ gummy bear sweets under the sarnies in my lunchbox :)
I'll go to the pub and buy myself a pint (no work tomorrow), and then go home to my empty apartment.
Don't be lonely on Valentines day. Why not invite round a hooker?
You could knit a lovely scarf together...
I'm sure if I really wanted to I could find a woman of ill repute in a bar who would be considerably cheaper than a hooker. I tend to find a couple of G&Ts can cut it.
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
After watching The Hoops tonight.
I may need a Sangria or two.
Went to Whitby last weekend and said it covered valentines day as well.
our house this morning - "mummy, why do me, baby & daddy have cards and chocolate but you don't?"
I am expecting big things when I get home tonight after that guilt trip!
Did you pay your child some extra pocket money to ask that question Fiona ;)? You'll have to update us tomorrow on whether the guilt trip worked!
Mr G and I mumbled "Happy Valentine's" to each other this morning. I then bought myself a Terry's Chocolate Orange which I am now devouring. Who says romance is dead?
mmm chocolate orange!
No pocket money bribery as he's only 3 - resulted in 2 cards and a box of black magic - result!!
5 days' (and nights') worth of result?!!
Got nothing for Mrs U and found a card and pressie on the kitchen counter when I got up for breakfast at sparrow's fart.
Think I have got away with it though as we went out for a meal last night, it being warmer than a house where the boiler blew up a week ago (hopefully fitting of the new one will be complete when I get home tonight!)
We just went for lunch to the local gastro pub and one of my local clients was at the next table. Talking loudly office politics so I made my presence known, I don’t think they were delighted to see us!
I sent flowers to a gorgeous woman whom I have been pursuing for some time.
Interflora was very late in delivery, about 5pm. The impact was not the same.
Dark horse you first tab
Roses and Roses- one lot in water the other in a cardboard box with instructions explaining which sweet is which.
Then the gesture beyond love, handed over £5 to other half suggesting she place it on Celtic to win, sat with her supportively through the downs and downs of the match.
I think my futile gesture was appreciated as she watched her second Green Team quashed by a distinct gulf in class.
