    I'm hopefully going to get myself a chinese takeaway, watch a few dvds and have a nice cold bottle of Jaques. Might even buy myself a card :lol: No fancy 3 course meals, overpriced flowers and grotesquely large teddies here! Gotta love being single :)

    OH and my anniversary is the week before valentine's so we don't do anything, BUT for our 2 year anniversary he is taking me to a hotel downtown, we will be greeted with champagne and strawberries when we arrive and thennnn he is sending me to the spa for a massage, facial and mani/pedi. we will have a chinese food picnic on the floor of the hotel room (that was our first date in his brand new apartment that he had no furniture for) anddddd then we will have breakfast in bed the next day :D.

    lots of money, but it is a special occasion and we don't have kids or anything so he's allowed to spoil me.

    I am going to make an effort this year, me & OH have made a decision anyway to have a bit more 'us' time....we are gonna go for a meal every month when I get paid...I think its important to keep things fresh :) we went out on Wed evening for a few drinks and a lovely 3 course meal, so so lovely not done it for years!!
    anyway not sure what we will do, maybe a meal in a nice resturant? or a long walk together? or maybe cook him a lovely meal and dessert for when he gets home from work :cloud9: and I am gonna get him some aftershave and some other bits & a card xx

    We don't really do Valentine's day and this year we have a single friend visiting so we're spending time with him as he's only up for a couple of days and we don't see him as often as we'd like now! On February 14th itself we're going over a mate's house for dinner with them and their fiance (another friend), the single guy who's visiting and a mutual single female friend. It should be fun, despite me having darts after! Then on the Tuesday, there's a big RocSoc valentine's celebration so we'll be dressing up and going out for a good night with good music and friends!

    Beca :wave:

    We don't really do much! Normally buy each other a card. We are going to see Jimmy Carr on the 18th so I suppose we could go out for dinner as well that night and it's sort of like a valentines night out?

    Well my brother has decided that he is coming home (I say home, our parents live in Portugal so home in the UK is now my house) the Sat before Valentines and is staying the week so he has offered to look after Noah for us. We have nothing planned but we want to do something different, not the usual meal, romantic thing. We were thinking of going to a comedy club or a gig. Only probably with a gig is I am pregnant and we both like rock, no moshing please!

    We don't do it but I must admit, I have got Boyo a card from IJP this year and vice versa as well as getting her one of Jacs gorgeous Valentines Froglets for her collection!

    We get each other little things all year through when we see something we think the other will like and do a lot of little silly gestures (like the Ripple that just landed on our doormat for me!) so don't tend to do it because of a date x
