Hubby and I have been married since 2006, we’ve been together since 2001. We’ve never really done the whole romance thing, it’s just not us really. We’ve given the occasional soppy card, however most have just been silly or have taken the piss.
This year Hubby has suggested that we go on a NightNic. A what? I hear you say. My thoughts precisely. Well a picnic at night in the dark sky park in Galloway, ooh lovely.
My response to this…
Who are you and what have you done with my husband.
He had been thinking about it and just thought it would be a nice idea. Again, my response to this…
What have you done?
It’s just so unusual for either of us to be “romantic”. Our wedding wasn’t romantic, it took an hour and cost us £300 start to finish. We buy each other useful presents, things that we like yes, but useful.
I just don’t like valentines day, it always feels like consumerism rather than a celebration, why have a day to tell people you love them? I tell hubby everyday and I tell my family on a regular basis that I love them.
Yes the 14th February gives you an excuse to do something special, but why should you need an excuse?
