Happy Valentine's Day
I hate to admit this, but we've exceeded the £10 budget this Valentine's Day by at least £2, as hubby went all out with a card, flowers AND chocolates! Make that £7 if you count The Notebook DVD I purchased while doing the weekly shop yesterday evening.
The flowers (placed in the vase by the hub, who's obviously never taken a flower arranging class) are a gorgeous deep red colour and my card is really sweet: on the front there's a picture of two teddy bears on a sofa - as you open it, one of the bears moves so they end up cuddling. Awwww.
The flowers and chocolates were there when I got home from the supermarket last night. I opened the box and had some while watching The Notebook. Although not a masterpiece, it was better than watching Starship Troopers, and more romantic than So You Think You Can Dance - the only offerings on TV besides Star Trek, CSI, NCIS and other such staples.
Today we got up late and exchanged cards over brunch. Then, hubby went off to the pub to watch England play against Italy in the Six Nations rugby championship. Sport is stronger than romance.
