Valentines Day

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Valentines Day

Postby jrc » February 7th, 2018, 10:57 am

Normally, we go out but find somewhere reasonably priced. Looking around here the offerings are Beefeater style or different places, same food, silly money.

I don’t know if Bob was joking but he said Mc Donald’s were doing a Valentines offer. :terrified:

I know it can be a lonely time for those on their own, the same as those of us who have lost parents eg Mothering Sunday etc but I have decided for the first time I am going to cook on VD.

There are many days that are difficult. If you remember my sister died on VD in 2007. :hug:

I have king prawns in a sweet chilli and tomato sauce with garlic bread. Not got as far as anything else yet.

For those who are celebrating, are you in or out and what are you likely to have? :hug: :hug: :hug:

We're hoping to go out on the day itself although our plans may change. If we do go out, it will be somewhere like Bundobust, who do good beer and reasonabl priced street food type dishes https://bundobust.com/manchester/

It is our 5th anniversary two days after Valentine's day so we've booked to go to Harvey Nichols restaurant. I struggle to find 'nice' places that suit me (veggie) and OH (very fussy meat eater) http://ef5e7f0f2d9ba366c072-dc4ba8bd295a3c3035a2eaa0fc98f6b0.r56.cf2.rackcdn.com/Menu_Winter%20A4%20(Manchester)%20ART.pdf

Oooh, haven't thought yet ... other than we've decided to make cards rather than buy ... it's hard to find something that isn't either rude, crass or overly sentimental now that the really good card shop selling hand made and artists' cards in Norwich has closed.

We always eat in at Valentine's ... don't like what feels to us like over-commercialisation and sentimentalisation of relationships ... I shall have to put my thinking hat on ........... the first thing that comes to mind is moules with cider and cream and some lovely crusty bread followed by something fruity and some very good cheese ......

I'm obviously wrong - I've always thought Valentine cards were to be sent to people who were unaware that they had inflamed passions in you. You will not be surprised, therefore, to learn that I never receive any. :lol:

As a singleton with no secret admirers that I know of I have no reason to celebrate. I shan't miss it. The only thing I shall miss is sending a card to my cats! :lol: I have toyed with the idea of sending a wind up card to my 14 year old nephew and not let him know it's from me! He is a complete wind up himself so sort of deserves it, but he is having typical teenage girlfriend issues at the moment so I wouldn't want to muddy the waters! :lol:

I do, however, get 'paid' on 14th, so I feel a little 'me' gift coming on. A nice piece of salmon comes to mind as a treat for dinner, new potatoes, a nice sauce, a bottle of sauvignon blanc, all very reasonably priced in my Lidl. :grin: :tu:

Happy Valentine's to all celebrating and enjoy your plans! :luv:

We give each other a card but no present.

We’re thinking of going out for an early dinner to our local Italian with DD too. There’ll be a set menu on offer (there always is) but we’ll probably go off the a la carte or specials menu. I am quite addicted to their crab stuffed pancakes with salad so that’ll be me sorted

They don’t usually do any naff decorations or selling of roses or anything like that thank goodness!

Aww bless Tezza. What a lovely idea. :hug:

There are certain days of the year are difficult for various different reasons. But on the one hand it’s easy to tell yourself it’s just one day but when the build up for each of those days lasts three or four months, or in the case of Christmas, cards in the shops in the summer holidays it makes it harder.

Son never knew his father for a number of legal reasons. ( No, I won’t be on Jeremy Kyle anytime soon) :terrified: I was married and know exactly who he is but on day like Father’s Day when he was small, it was hard for him but he always made a card for his beloved grandad instead. :hug:

This year the 14th it will be 59years since our first date. There is a bit of a difficulty here because very many good restaurants are not yet opened after their winter break. Quite often I jus make a special meal for the two of us at home and have a meal out on his birthday 2 days later.

However i have been told that this year we are going out for lunch - suits us both far better these days. We will be having something from the regular menu which, knowing the restaurant will be fabulous:
https://www.english.levivier-restaurant.com/#le-vivier

As we have snow forecast for next week I doubt if we will have a table on the terrace however :lol:

We long since gave up with going out on VD or the nearest weekend as everywhere is packed to the gunnels with embarrassed looking couples, the food is invariably ropy and the service is pants because everywhere is overbooked. A bit like the run-up to Christmas. Instead, we have a tradition where we cook a surprise meal with one of us responsible for the mains and the other the starter and pud. I'm on mains this year, and am planning a rustic style pork/boar stew with polenta. :chops:

Aww Gruney, what's your address? :lol: :lol:

I think that Valentines Day has become far too serious and the whole meaning changed. It should be fun whether between admirers or established couples. It has turned into a commercial horror. Keep it simple and personal. :luv:

(One reason I hate the commercialism is that my birthday is two days afterwards and it's hard to arrange to do anything these days on the weekend before :evil: . I do always remind people that they can post my cards all at the same time though :lol: )

I can imagine people booking it as a joke or an ironic gesture. Having seen and tasted some of the rubbish some places serve up at exorbitant prices for Valentine’s Day it may be that the Greggs fare goes down well. I have to admit that one of their sausage rolls is a very infrequent guilty pleasure!

Ooops :oops: I didn't mean it in a snobby way. I was thinking more of turning out on a cold winter's night especially to go to Greggs. I'd rather stay home in the warm! I think Greggs' fare can be very welcoming and tasty. If it was in the daytime, on the way home from work or pre-pub in the evening it might be just the ticket!

My birthday causes the same problems here, so we will have a lunch out later in the week. I think this is the first time Shrove Tuesday has ever fallen on my birthday (in 63 years) but as neither of us care for pancakes we wont be having any. I think Mr C will cook on my birthday, I have seen him studying various recipe books, but I havent been instructed to add anything to the shopping list as yet.

Personally my hiatus hernia groaned when I read the Gregg's menu but I know pastry lover's without hernias who would enjoy it! I didn't know that Gregg's had tables in them. Each to their own! I'd have to decline!

I did notice Lidl advertising a meal deal for two when I was in there earlier. It looked quite nice actually.

I have bought him a card and put some of my own words in as well.... I don't think he has bought one, no problem as I normally get a bunch of flowers. I may put an extra bit of effort into a meal on the day but we don't normally eat out on VD. Too much hype.

Catherine, we have never met but I see the way you are so encouraging and kind to others I can’t believe that there isn’t a cog to fit your wheel. Anyone would be incredibly lucky to have you in their lives- less of the foolish talk missy.

However I do agree with everything you say about telling the ones you love how you feel every day.

You need a drawer with a lock on it and a key hidden somewhere safe Zosh. You then leave various chocolatebars you don't especially like where he can see them and pretend to grumble when he eats them.

I'll have a bar of chocolate sitting in the cupboard for three months, and the day I decide to eat it, he has generally eaten it the night before, after I've gone to bed. There is a telepathy of sorts there but its not being put to good use!

if I had to rely on Mr R to make some food - romantic or otherwise I'd have a pretty meagre meal. Despite all my efforts over the last 59years he just hasn't got it. :lol: :lol:

The restaurant he has chosen does not do a special menu at lunchtime, and only if one chooses to have it in the evening. The full menu is avaiable.

Still nothing in the postie's sack for me......there's still a day to go! :lol: I do not expect anything, a bit like in my last short relationship about four years ago. I was stood up. Neither of us had any other commitments apart from my need to feed my cats after work, then I stupidly assumed, as it was a pretty new relationship, that we would join up in the evening. :rolleyes: The night before he told me that he had offered to babysit his nephew so that his sister could go out, and would I like to drive the ten or so miles over to her house to sit with him. Er, no thanks, I'd rather watch paint dry, I think I'll stay at home with my cats :luv: and treat myself to a bunch of flowers and some nice food. A bit hacked off, I shared this with work colleagues who convinced me (it didn't take much persuasion!) not to waste my money on a card, so instead I made one from a printable template on the internet. The bed scene from The Exorcist where Regan has her head back to front with a caption 'Valentine, you make my head spin'. :lol: It was more a bit of fun in my lunch hour, I didn't intend to give it to him, then babysitting was cancelled and he turns up on my doorstep in the evening, me in pyjamas, make up removed etc, he with red roses, a bottle of wine and an over sized card! :shock: Well, for the cheeky inconvenience of the whole situation I couldn't let my artwork go to waste! :lol: When he (eventually) went home he left it on my Welsh dresser. Who said romance is dead!

The relationship was destined for the bin anyway. I think it lasted about a week after that. That's one way of getting rid of them. :tu:

Life's not a destination ... it's a journey ... usually with some bumpy bits along the way ........... the same thing goes for love and romance :lol: :D :cocktail: :cocktail:
