C'mon then, what are you all doing for Valentines
**** all this year. I remember the days of flowers, presents, softly-lit meals for 2 followed by 12 hours of sweaty passion.
Nothing like 6 months sleep deprivation from a small child to kill off any sign of romance. Certainly more than an overpriced card and a bunch of roses will cure.

I got a packet of tangfastics and a fumble this morning
Result! I had to get up early to go for a blood test (for diabetes).
We’re not bothered by the whole silly commercial nonsense, but I will be getting some nice hand made chocs for the weekend, as it’s something we can enjoy together. And I’ll be fitting a new tyre to her bike. Who said romance is dead?Posted 5 years ago
I want stories, I want tragedy and triumph
I’ll open the door on my house with my key. Drop off my son’s football boots. Stroke the dog. Say hello.
And leave. Walk back to my rented property down the road to spend the evening alone.
How’s that?Posted 5 years ago

I got up and made her a cup of tea this morning, on the way back up got the kids and gave them a couple of cards (one from me, one from them full of that annoying glittery stuff) and a present. Queue excitement about present as we don’t really get/give them any more, she opened it up and it was…………………………………… a packet of Thomas the Tank Engine extra track. The boys were very excited!Posted 5 years agothx1138Member

I’ve missed a trick here. I should have done the same, with some Scalextric track/cars (it’s for the children of friends and family who visit, honest).
I’m buffed, polished, trimmed, shaved and plucked.
I might check I’ve got no dirt under my nails.
Wife’s just informed me a friend of hers is staying over tonight. I may go to the pub. Is there any football on tonight?Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Made her tea and breakfast in bed this morning.
Cooking pizza tonight (being super organised, the dough is already resting in the fridge).
If she’s really lucky I won’t moan about how I always make breakfast, cook dinner and do the housework like every other day*.
*this is usualy followed or preceeded by her making the same complaint, despite when pressed admiting that the last cup of tea she made was a fortnight ago, and the only houseowrk she’s done in the last week is to load and unload the washing machine on monday night.
