In TillyBudLand, Every Day Is Valentine’s Day

14 Feb

I’m bored with all the hype surrounding today.  Blame the Hub: once he put the idea into my head that you don’t need a special day to show your love; if you love someone you should declare it every day, then I stopped seeing the point of Valentine’s.

The man is as good as his word.  A random scan of my kitchen revealed the following:

   I often open my diary to discover a little love note.  He likes me to start my day with a smile. 


  This is from my noticeboard; he found a piece of sponge and cut it into the shape of a heart. 


  This was from last year’s anniversary; he cut out and numbered every heart, then strung them together:


  This is on my fridge.  The heart was cut from a spare piece of card he had lying around.  The flowers are from copper wire the kitchen workmen left behind.

I’ll be honest: he’s stubborn; he’s annoying; he’s always right; and he hangs on to every bit of crap he can.  But when a man demonstrates his love every day in tiny ways, not just leaving love notes, but the caring touches, like plaiting my hair every night before bed; dragging himself out to walk the dogs with me when he’s feeling ill; telling me every day that he loves me, then he’s worth hanging on to.

I poke fun at him every day in my blog and to his face, but he’s the love of my life.  So, if a non-soppy, non-showing-how-much-she-loves-him person can’t use Valentine’s Day to say, ‘I love you, darling,’ then she doesn’t deserve him.

Normal service will be resumed immediately, because I feel quite nauseous from all of this slop, but for now:

I love you, darling.  Thank you for loving me.

      Uggh. Don’t remind me. I must have overdosed on sugar yesterday.

        And given my Malteser capacity, that’s a LOT of sugar.

      Or the hardest-working? It ain’t easy being this loved-up: we had to have a lot of fights to get there.

    some people deserve each other

    why shouldn’t valentine’s day also be a special day? a top-up one?


    • Tilly Bud February 15, 2011 at 12:19 #

      ‘some people deserve each other’

      What did I ever do to you that you could be so cruel?

      Oh don’t…I can’t take it anymore.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
