Lonely, Lonely Valentine's Day

All I have seen for the past week or so, is people stating how they are spending their Valentine's Day. Going for a romantic meal, surprising their hubbies and even breaks away and I couldn't help but being a tad jealous. My husband is working today, has been all day, and so there is no romantic day for us. 

I have been preparing a surprise for my husband for a while now though as I knew that we wouldn't be able to celebrate together. 

It might not be very romantic, but I know that it is something that he has been wanting to go to for ages now. I have recently bought him tickets to see the darts so that he can go and have a night out with his friend. Deciding to use this as my Valentine's Day present, I was glad to get this sorted a while back so there was no worrying and buying last minute gifts.

This wasn't the case for my husband though. He does everything last minute, and after our boiler broke last week, I knew that a present for myself would be off the cards. It's not all bad though, tonight whilst my hubby is working, I will be writing my blog, surfing the Social Media channels and maybe playing a little online bingo. Well, I've got to get my kicks from some where and you never know, if I do win big I may be able to afford more pressies in the future. 

You can connect to Butlers Bingo, if you're on Twitter, and find out who your #Tweetheart is. Who is the person you interact most with over there? I am thinking that mine may probably be another blogger as I rarely tweet my own husband. 

Me, I'm not too bothered that my husband and myself wont be celebrating tonight. I don't need a certain day to let him know how much he means to me and if I did, It would be our wedding anniversary.

  1. You don't need a day of commercial made up nonsense to share your love, you're absolutely right! I was lucky to get flowers from my husband today but to be honest I have never cared much for valentines day, it's just an excuse for people to pay for overpriced flowers and commercial tat.

  3. I do agree that people shouldn't wait until valentines to express love (However I still think it's nice to have someone to call your valentine absent or not), I hope you had a nice day anyway. From someone who has never had a valentine

  4. I've never really done valentines day, although I love the kitche of all the valentines items for sale (I love anything with hearts too!) I find the entire day intolerable in how tacky it is, I'd rather boycott the whole day. It's for the best, given as my Mr. is 5500+ miles away and I don't get to see him until late March.

  5. I'm sure you could have Valentines on another night - be vastly cheaper then too.

  6. Ahhh bless - I spent mine just with my kids as I am a single mum. So many couples I know couldn't be together either because of work commitments etc. Just remember it is only one day - you have your hubby always x

  7. I agree - Valentine's Day is just another day for the stores to make money by selling overpriced flowers and plants.

  9. Sorry you didn't get a gift but hopefully he did something nice for you, even if it was just a hug and 'I love you'.
