A Quiet Valentines - Perfect!

 We don't to "Date Night", Valentines or not. We don't have a baby sitter for a start (strangely hard to come by when you have 3 kids under 6), and even if we did, we have become people who like to be at home. By the time the kids are in bed we don't really have the energy to go out anyway! Last time my Hubby took me to the cinema I fell asleep, and we both resent paying over the odds for food and drink at bars and restaurants when we could have it at home for half the price or less.

That doesn't mean we're not romantic though, in our own way.

We buy each other cards. (I still get cards of my dad. Which seems a little creepy now I'm 34... but he wont stop in case I "don't get any"). I get them for my boys too though, and a little sweet treat. This year they have small bag of chocolate luv bugs each.

We buy each other gifts, but not cuddly toys, hearts and flowers (ok, sometimes I get flowers) it's usually DVDs or games - more recently Skylanders toys! And either he will cook for us or he'll get us a take away in so that I don't have to make dinner. I even get to choose! That's my kind of gift! Get out of house work free!

Once the kids are packed off to bed we snuggle up and watch a movie or tv box set (often involving zombies) and just enjoy each others company and the peace and quiet of sleeping children. When I'm not pregnant we'll share a bottle of something boozie, but this year he has something all to himself while I have a virgin alternative.

On the occasional year that Valentines falls on a weekend we go out for the day somewhere the kids will enjoy.

It might not sound like much to other people, but for us it's nice. We do so much for each other all year round that making an big deal out of one day seems less important.  In fact, valentines day only seemed like that big if a deal when I was single! Go figure!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
