With the unrelenting stormy weather persisting outside, as it has for about four months, and sickness among our family persisting within the house, as it has for about two weeks, my partner and I decided to postpone Valentines Day romance to a more convenient date in the future. When you have been with each other for more than a decade and have a house full of children you can decide to shift these goal posts in a way that would be unacceptable when the love is in its infancy and at least one of the couple is still wearing rose-tinted spectacles.
By chance we both had the afternoon off work, cuddled up on the sofa and watched a film – all this is pretty rare in the day time any day of the week but especially on a Friday!
So to be honest we have had a nice Valentines day that was totally unplanned. We watched Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, which is just a crazy comedy, it had us laughing from start to finish.
