Valentines - Dead Romantic or Utterly Rancid?

Ok, I need help… hummm most people who know me would agree with that!! However what I really need help with is Valentines Day. I’m no romantic and would normally cast the day aside as an over hyped retail marketers dream. And also, if you have to have a day depicted to you of when you are supposed to be kind and spoil you partner it’s a sad shame. Kind, thoughtless acts are for all year round surely? Gosh I’m more of a humbug about this that Christmas ha ha

Ok I can make a card, just happen to be knocking up some vintage styled ones for a Vintage valentines fair I’m doing… ok so that’s done. I can easily find something nice to write as he’s such a sweetie (he he luckily he rarely reads my blog as sweet is like cute in his book – reserved for kittens and cupcakes!)

I had a scan on a vintage events website/blog for the Norwich area and found a Jonathan Wyatt Big Band event. Should be set for a good bit of old style music. I profess to know nothing, other than what I like. – I grew up with Glen Miller, not literally obviously!!

Anyway I shall already be vintaged up from the daytime event so a bit more red lippy & some heated roller action (if there’s time) and a glass or two of pink champagne (ok probably really cava) and I’ll be ready. I also can’t dance to music pre 1950’s so I should thoroughly out of my depth – especially as the boyfriend like to show off his dance moves. I’ll get him back at anything playing dance music – he’d be like a deer in the headlights ha ha.

Anyway I’ve been babbling on & I’m not even on the wine. What I was hoping any advice on how to be romantic – I looked on Amazon some time ago ha ha but I value friend opinions over some smug book writing advice giving couple.

What lovely things are you doing for Valentines? I imagine that you are all fun, fabulous, thoughtful types 365 day of the year.

  1. Oh Gosh, Chris and I tend to have quirky rather than romantic Valentine's. We do usually make an effort to do something either a little day out or we will cook a meal. I'm not one for cheese though, so we tend to buy each other perfume or a book/music that type of thing rather than red roses. In my opinion the men should put all the effort into St Val's - it's a day for the ladies in my book lol!


I love reading your comments, plus it reminds me that someone other than my mummy is actually reading my blog!!! he he xx
