Valentine’s Day this year has been rather understated. It was exactly what we needed… It focused on us as a couple rather than the commercialism that now accompanies many of the holidays and celebrations glamorised in shops.
We celebrated on the 13th (not just because of the three football matches that were back-to-back on Sunday) but because it really meant more to make an effort on a Saturday night to get dressed up and go out together.
It’s one thing I’m re-learning – it’s important to spend time with each other and make the effort. We sometimes fall out of the habit of making the time … I hope it sticks.
