Were you spoilt on Valentine’s Day?

I hope that everyone all had a good Valentine’s Day. I received a practical gift – a hairdryer – which I chose myself and which I desperately needed. I bought my partner quite a few presents, which I guess he felt a bit bad about because he thought his didn’t match up.

Not to worry, he cleaned the house from top to bottom and then made me the most delicious lunch which had him slaving over the stove for a couple of hours.

Sometimes I think that actions speak louder than words and that’s why it’s great to be pampered on Valentine’s Day. Anyone can buy someone a gift (if they have the money) but not everyone can be bothered to make their loved one a card or spring clean the house.

I don’t really see the point of Valentine’s Day, to be honest. It seems as though it’s a commercialised and expensive love day where people make money on the fact that you have to ‘prove’ your love.

To me it’s a bit of a waste of time, because I don’t need a day like Valentine’s Day to feel loved. What do you think? Were you spoilt on V day?

My mum actually received a gift from my dad this Valentine’s Day, which I thought was rather sweet, seeing as though they have been married for more than thirty years. But then she told me that it was only because they went away for the weekend and one of their friends bought a present for his wife, prompting dad to do the same.

Perhaps all men need a kick up the backside at some point – or maybe they just don’t buy into the Valentine’s Day advertising as much as we women do?
