My Honey Valentine

Hubby is not what I would call Romantic, but he has his moments and I wouldn’t have him any different.
With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I am sure there are plenty of girlfriends hoping their Man will ‘pop the question’ or buy them flowers and chocolates. Perhaps they’ll take them out for a meal or even away for a romantic weekend.
As for the Guys, I have no idea what they hope for, unless it’s a quiet night in watching the footie or some other sport on the telly. I’m afraid I don’t have that much experience with knowing exactly What Men Want as years ago after reading all the ‘How to keep your Man Happy’ magazine articles I tried, got laughed at, and sent the lacy underwear and fishnets back.

Never again. I am a Bridget Jones Big Knickers kind of girl now.bridget jonesI had my first Valentine’s card over fifty years ago. I still don’t know who sent it, but think it was probably a family member so that I wouldn’t feel left out when Sis got hers. I didn’t understand what it was all about anyway, and actually gave one to my Mum, purely to let her know that I loved her.
I’ve sent my share of cards though, some as a “Secret Admirer” but most to the partner of the time.

These days I’m usually the Occasion Card Sender, but that doesn’t mean that Hubby forgets or doesn’t care. Far from it. On Monday, he gave me a heart shaped box containing 8 chocolates, purely because ‘they were there’ on the shelf when he went into the Co-Op to buy a loaf of bread. They are in the drawer and we shall share them tomorrow.

heartHubby doesn’t need a special day,  card or gift to tell me he loves me. Many a time when money wasn’t as tight as it is now, he would buy me flowers just because he saw them. Other times he thought I’d like some as I’d been feeling low for some reason or another.

How do you tell your Man how much you care Ladies?

Somehow chocolates and flowers don’t quite fit the picture, though I know I could give mine chocolate any time and he’d be happy.
These days, going out for meal would cost us almost a fortnight’s shopping budget, so I’ve got in the ingredients and we’ll have a relaxing meal at home for a tenth of the price.dinner for twoWe’ll set the table, turn off the lights to dine by candlelight, put some moody music in the CD and gaze into each others eyes. That way,  if I’ve burnt it,  he won’t notice until it’s already in his mouth, by which time it will be too late and he’s too much of a gentleman to spit it out.

The experts (particularly those with horticultural interests)  tell our men to Say it With Flowers. I’m happy when my Man just says it (especially as there are many men who never say it at all) .

I’m also extremely lucky to know that when he does,  he means it. Every Day .
And I believe him.

I love you too Honey.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    “If” The Turk remembers tomorrow it will be a miracle but perhaps I will jump in here and do something special for him instead (if I remember).
