Feeling the Love.
Valentine's Day is not something we have always celebrated. Like most celebrations these days, they are over commercialised and Valentine's Day is just another one of them, but for some reason this year, we decided to go all out. I am of the opinion that showing you someone you love them is not just for one day, it is for every day of the year.
Anyway back to the day. On Wednesday, I was given a dozen Red roses. Then on Valentine's Day morning, he had gone off food shopping, I got a phone call from our local radio station, saying they had a message for me from Keith. I was to pack an overnight bag. To say I was shocked was an understatement. I spent all morning wondering what he had planned. When he got back with the food shopping, I stowed it away and then told him we were eating out for lunch, so he needed to change. We walked into the town, where I posted a parcel off, we then went to Totally Thai for a romantic lunch and a bottle of wine.
The bed was amazing, it had a deep plush mattress, which cuddled you. Having slept in a 4 foot bed for the past 14 years, having a night in a King size bed was fabulous.
It was then time to head back to reality and the boat, where the fire was still going, it just needed a riddle and some more coal.
I know there will be many out there who do not celebrate Valentine's Day for many reasons and I respect that. However having not bothered much over the years, this year was special for us both.
Pop back soon.
