Making Amends

Millie, Badly Drawn Mum

Yeah yeah we all know about tomorrow night. It’s National-Be-Romantic-For-An-Evening evening. I’d rather be one of those people who say “Hey we don’t do Valentine’s Day, we‘re romantic ALL the time.” But we’re not. And last year, whisper it, I forgot. Oh dear. So to overcompensate I’ve bought the card, the oysters, the champagne Cava. I’ve got the tea lights and a Dean Martin album on standby. I might even wear matching underwear.

I was never a big fan of eating out on Valentine’s Day, even when we actually could. Those special Valentine’s Day menus restaurants insist on – the ones exactly like normal menus, only more expensive – are bad enough. But who wants to be surrounded by 40 other couples staring blankly at each other? It’s a situation that makes it impossible to actually have a conversation. And it’s guaranteed that, after dinner, someone will be wandering round trying to embarrass the men into buying their partner a plastic-wrapped, overpriced rose. No thanks.

I’m all for a bit of homespun romance. That way you can afford to go all-out with the whole salmon-chocolates-fizz thing. Yes, it’s a cliché, but who cares? It’s nice. And for the first time, we actually have a real fire. Wish me luck!
