Valentine’s on the Cheap 3

Valentine’s on the Cheap – it can be done! On February 14th most of the restaurants and theatres are overcrowded, overpriced and the service is just plain dismal. By staying at home you’ll save the pennies, avoid the crowds and increase your intimacy. Are you dreading the thought of spending yet another Valentine’s Day at home? Well, it doesn’t have to be drab and unimaginative. In fact, if you’re not off to one of the swish function rooms or wedding venues Brisbane or Sydney (or any other major city in Australia), why not plan something special for your Valentine without having to be out of pocket? But remember, these venues still offer your romantic options so you could still opt to go for the swish! Here are some ideas for celebrating a special Valentine’s Day at home. A Picnic by the Fireside Pull the sofa up to a roaring fire, […]


Why I hate Valentines day 10

So much fake lovey dovey stuff is forced in our faces from mid January to make you buy over priced and largely tatt tokens of affection. I don’t want chocolates in a heart shaped box, or a cheaply made teddy bear just because it’s hugging a heart cushion. It’s everywhere, and this year I am NOT playing this Valentine’s game! This is going to be a rant, a personal one. If you know my in real life kindly stop reading. One year ago, on Valentine’s day night, at midnight so he’d think I’d forgotten any kind of gift or love token, totally unexpected to him (I think) I got down on one knee and asked him to be my husband. He said yes, I was so happy. Then he refused to put the ring on saying he didn’t like jewelry, didn’t want it mentioned anywhere people might hear it or […]

Valentines day, over rated or brilliant?

Valentines day, to me it used to be special but now its just lame. Big shops and brands have got their claws into yet another traditional day and pimped it out for all its worth. I love sweet romantic thoughtful gestures, not so keen on another mug with hearts on, or heart shaped chocolates, or fluffy hand cuffs. Come on big shops, get a bit less tacky please? I’m going to be much more happy to receive a rose bush to plant out than a dozen roses to die on my fireplace in a vase. Much happier with a mars bar or a toffee crisp bar than a big pink “pretty” chocolate heart, its over priced and artificially coloured chocy always tastes wrong. Why did you have to mess with our traditions you greedy big brands? What was wrong with love letters and candlelit homemade dinners? Simple happiness not corporate […]
