Soppy Valentines Spike


Friday 14 February, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Yay, February 14th is here, and it’s a special one this year – I get to spend 3-4 hours with my Valentine for a change!

Over the past few years, I have not been able to see Aunty Spike, a.k.a. ‘the misses’ on Valentines Day as she works away all week. However, this year it’s on a Friday – so from 7pm she’ll be home.

A romantic meal awaits – started preparing tonight (no details here as she may see this, lol). Romantic, well kind of, depends on how one views having a 6 year old Cousin Spike Jnr at the same table, and who, having not seen mum all week, will no doubt be ‘challenging’ to his overly-tired mom. Plus, romance will not exactly be heightened as we watch Clone Wars, or such like.

Still, it’ll make a pleasant change from exchanging waves on Skype each year over dodgy internet and my ageing laptop that struggles with anything that has ‘moving pictures’.

And all this excitement after managing to get a meal out ‘together’ in Ankara recently for her birthday – our first birthday meal alone for 7 years. The joys of parenthood and working lives, eh?

After kiddo goes off to bed, we have some choccies and marshmallows at least 😀

    It’s so nice to read such a warm and loving post. I love it.
    I’m impressed that you two take the effort to do theses things toghether. It’s so important, For ypu and for ypur children. What I admire most in the post – is not the candy ( even if it’s so pretty) – it is you writing “overly – tired mom”. God bless all men who understands that a mom can come home overly-tired and that a dinner at the table and Mr Spock is fine until a good night sleep.
    I hope your dinner was great :-). I’m sure you both deserved it,


  2. Very sweet! I don’t celebrate but I agree that when kids are little and work gets in the way, a dinner (Valentine’s Day or not) with the one you love is a gift to appreciate. Enjoy!

    I was wondering because I get all your guessing games wrong I should ask. The extra hearts in the center of the heart is eyes and not girl parts?


...waiting to hear from you...
