A special day to keep greeting card companies in business. Or a day to gaze into the eyes of your soulmate over a candle-lit dinner. I suppose how you feel about Valentine’s Day depends on whether you’re a romantic or not…
Well, I may have said it before, but I’m probably the most unromantic woman on the planet. Not only that, but I’m cynical, sarcastic and don’t take life seriously… And I don’t need or expect roses or presents or romantic gestures.
But my husband likes all of the above. Yes, he gets me roses, every now and then, but not nearly as often as he would like. He also sends me lovely postcards when he’s away, saying that he misses me. Or that’s what I think it says on the cards; his handwriting is a bit challenging… Anyway, I’m not good at sending letters or postcards, but I email him copies of the bills he needs to pay, or cat videos.
Oh well, he knew what he was getting into when he married me, no need to feel sorry for him.
We are going out
the night before Valentine’s Day, though, to a nice restaurant. But I won’t be wearing this outfit. I don’t know what I’ll be wearing; I don’t plan these things in advance. Besides, who knows what the weather will be like: sleet, snow, rain, icy streets, or all of the above. It doesn’t really matter: it’s winter, the weather is going to be bad, and I will dress accordingly.
What, am I going to pass such a perfect occasion to wear a party dress just because of the weather?!?
Err, yes, I am.
In my book, sleet/snow/icy streets call for winter boots, not heels. We don’t have a car, and any outing requires taking the train / bus / tram and walking. And after a couple of weeks of getting over the flu I really don’t want to risk getting a cold, either. So, it looks as if nothing can separate me from my beloved cashmere sweaters before April. I suppose I will have to try and make boots and cashmere look like a ‘date night’ outfit. We’ll see how it goes.
