Happy valentines

As I was growing up I always wanted lots of cards on valentines day. As I grew older I went through the stages of being happy because I had that special person sending me a card then comes the time that I thought it was a money making con playing on our emotions. even though I've not had a card or gift for several years I felt a bit down because I knew I wasn't getting one this year. Brian was unaware that it was valentines day till the carer mentioned it this morning and it broke my heart to see him crying because he hadn't been able to get me something. I said thats ok and said I don't need a card or flowers to know that you love me because you tell me everyday.

  • I recycled cards we gave each other 3 years ago. I read the words to Colin and his message to me. His thumbs went up and he said, "Same now".

    I hated Valentines day when I was young as I never received any cards ( do I hear violins). The first card I received was when I was 19, sent to me by this lovely man I married 2 years later, 42 years ago. That card is still somewhere in the loft. I couldn't throw it out as it is a padded one and arrived by post in a box. Tonight I am cooking his favourite meal, Coq au vin, which will have to be liquidised for him and I will have to finish the bottle of wine. Well I don't want it to go off do I?

    I hope you have a good day and as you say, it doesn't matter about cards and gifts when you know you love each other. I tell my boys not to bother with Mother's Day cards. I see them all regularly and they always kiss me on arriving and leaving and tell me they love me after every phone call so I'd rather it that way than a lovely card and little contact the rest of the year.

  • Hi Jane, very sad, but equally, very sweet. What's Valentines Day for, but to know that the special person in your life, loves you. Brian, with his tears, has told you that, far better than any card or present. I hope you have managed to get that across to him!

    Me, well, the same as happened, that it has for the last ???? Years, he put a card and half dead roses in the shopping trolley, as we went around Tescos!!! Card still waiting to be written, flowers, I changed for some nicer looking red roses and look very nice! Hey ho!

    Lots of love
