I got a box of pretty pink macarons in assorted flavours. Waiting for DS to be asleep so we can share them.

We don't normally do anything for Valentine's Day so it was a nice surprise.

I got some red roses and some little love duck figurines, which sit nicely next to our handmade birds nest cake topper that was on our wedding cake a week or so back original.gif

Umm nothing.  Not even a kiss or a 'Happy Valentine's'

We don't really do the Hallmark holidays.

He is away from home at the moment but sent a text message with a phrase that means absolutely nothing to anyone but us. It made me smile and go a bit mushy inside. blush.gif  wub.gif

Another in the nothing camp. We don't celebrate it and DH only just arrived home tonight after a week away so we've barely had a chance to speak to each other yet.

Nothing! DH left yesterday at 5am and is gone for a 5 week hitch. DS was in daycare today so I shouted myself to a complete new do including colour and cut & got myself a new GHD so I can't complain too much.

I wasn't expecting DH to get/make me anything but he made me a card + bought me heart shaped macaroons... and I didn't have ANYTHING ready to give him! So I made him his favourite dinner lol

#19 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:36 PM

I dropped my DH off at 4am at the airport (he is FIFO) neither of us remembered at that time of day. We don't celebrate it anyway, with 2 kids birthdays either side this month, it's expensive enough without bowing to commercialism.

When he phones tonight we might not remember then either LOL

Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:36 PM

A beautiful set of royal blue sheets. They go fabulously with our  blue and gold silk bed spread from Thailand.

And he will be getting a special dinner when he gets home from work at about 11.30 tonight lol
