day forty-five

do you do valentine's day? we don't in this house. used to be we'd fulfill all of the obligations, tick all the correct boxes. hastily bought card? check. flowers because it's the done thing? check. fancy dinner out so everyone can see just how romantic we are? look! check. but then we discovered that was all we'd been fulfilling - obligations. sound unromantic? not really. sorry, we're just not that into it.

plus, it's not as though we're exactly lacking in fancy dinners around here.
