Valentine Yes or No..

Hello all how are you all today?
Firstly to Pattypan,many thanks for your advice on getting rid of my headache..i have done nothing but drink water today and rub my lobes..not sure if your pulling my leg about that bit but Bingo it worked..for the first time since Monday i am headache free.


So back to topic..Valentine..do you do it ? And by do it i mean buy soppy cards at stupid prices and silly gifts.Or do you abstain?
For a few years after we got married we did get  each other cards..it wasn't such a big deal back then not like nowadays..just about every advert is aimed at Valentine day..Buy her a Razor its Pink..yep am pretty sure if i had got a Razor for Valentine Day i would have been insulted..thinking do i have hairy legs or arm pits..is he implying i need to shave.
Valentine is now too commercial..it used to be just for fun..secretly sending someone a card..i got 3 one year when i was about 15..to this day i have no clue who sent them to me but thats the fun part..guessing who has a crush on you.
When your married you no longer have a secret crush..your married to the person you love.
If you go by the adverts on tv then you need a second mortgage to buy that special someone that must have Jewellery/Car/Shoes/Dress/Watch/Razor the list goes on and on and on...
Valentine is one day..what about the other 364 days..
As for me well..i don't need a card or gifts to know my husband loves me..he tells me every morning that i am beautiful..even when i have just given birth and am all red faced and sweaty and not my best he loves me for all that..and when i puked on him..he still said i was beautiful and to me that means more than any card could ever say.
I appreciate my husband every day and i also tell him i love him every day..
Maybe i am cynical or see through the commercial aspect  and how its been taken over by card shops,supermarkets just to milk more money out of your pockets..

And to the immature girl who was having a melt down because her fella couldn't afford a meal out and gift..grow up..cards fade away,jewellery tarnishes,chocolates melt,perfume slowly stops smelling nice..but the love of a good man never fades only gets stronger.
I wouldn't swap for the world.

Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with romance and showing someone that you love them ..but do you need Valentine Day to do it?

  1. Hi Sara not pulling your leg there are areas of the body that you can tune into holistically and this way is a natural holistic way of making yourself feel a lot better. I am a Reiki Master and I was taught this technique at the beginning of my training. People are treated all the same but in reality each of us is very different and we all react differently. However becoming dehydrated is the one we all do without realising it. It is quite a natural one to try at the beginning or during any headache and if that does not work then there is obviously an underlying reason. Just remember that when you are wife, mother, daughter, aunt you have many calls on your time. However you must learn to remember to take time to recharge yourself. Taking that little time often stops a bigger problem looming and relaxes you in the meantime. We all have the ability to help ourselves. Very glad it worked for you.

    Take care

    1. Hi Pattypan..i think your right about me needing some time to myself..i am busy a majority of the time and i hardly ever get anytime to relax.I spoke to my hubby who agreed and wonders where i get the energy from..so we have agreed that at least once or twice a week i will have sometime to just relax or go for a walk to clear my head.
      It worked very well for me and i will remember it..thank you for all your help.

    1. Hi Phyllis..yes unfortunately some men think a bunch of flowers forgives everything..my gran was a bar maid and she told me once that men went to confession every Sunday and then were forgiven.went to her pub got drunk and would beat the living daylights out the wife and kids all week..then confess again and all would be forgiven..vicious cycle..

  4. Yes, we get each other a card, but rarely do more than that, as you so rightly say the love of a good man or woman goes on and on regardless of commercially planned days.

    Getting each other a card is actually a great reduction in what Lovely Hubby used to do, he used to hide cards all over the house, up to six cards some years, so this is us being very economical :-)

    I may make some heart shaped biscuits on Sunday, because it is as easy to make heart shaped ones as it is to make round ones ;-)

    1. Sue..now see i think that what your hubby did is sweet..he actually thought about it and made it fun..the love of good man is something special.."a man to walk the mountains with" as my favourite author says.
