What a Gift!

A lot of time seems to have passed since I last blogged and it appears that Valentine's Day is almost here.

I ventured out today, for the first time since Monday lunchtime, and every shop seemed to be somehow selling its products or services around the Valentine theme.

The promo that caught my attention, though, was in the local hairdresser's: "Treat your beloved to a cut and blow-dry and give her a manicure for half price"

Maybe I'm just out of touch with current romantic standards or maybe it's the fever still playing games with my mind but what message does that send to you?

I can't help thinking it's the kind of gift that says "I may love you, sweetheart, but you look a mess..."

Am I wrong? Feel free to tell me what you would regard as the ideal gift on the 14th ... you never know, someone might just be reading that would like to fulfil your every desire

Glad you are feeling better. My ideal 14th would involve a professional masseause, cocktails and slowdancing.

LMAO!! a lovely day at the spa for the pampering of your choice is one thing, but a gift certificate for a haircut, blow-dry and manicure... uhmm, yes... I may feel you were trying to tell me something in an oh so not subtle way!

btw, great cat pic, that alone was worth a big chuckle!

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

I'm afraid I agree with you there, a lot of people would take it the wrong way!
Did u grow that cat yourself?LOL

Speaking of cuts and blow dries, that cat in the photo sure could use one. As to my "ideal" Valentine gift that would be you at my door with a single flower....

I'm with you Brother Q.... "Here Honey, Happy Valentine's Day...now go clean up your act. " ...Not that I'm all that bright, but I wouldn't go there.

If I may be so bold as to express a desire...what I'd like for Valentine's Day is a full day of uninterruped time with my Best Friend . While there are a million things I'd like to do during that time...the time together would be all about whatever would make her happy...anything to make her feel loved, cherished, desired and beautiful.

** That pic wouldn't happen to be a self photo you took after laying around on the couch getting over your bad cold...would it? **

I don't really go for gifts, so for me, my ideal would be to spend the day together in bed....

Reading, of course!

A cut and blow-dry is something I'd expect to pay for myself... I'd slap you if you gave me a gift like that, because it would make me wonder what's wrong with my hair right now!!

And yes, so my nails need a little polish on them, but I'd rather do it myself, thank you very much!

As for what I'd love to receive... I've never been one for overt shows of romance - maybe because I've never received them? I like the little subtle things, the unexpected things... I'd like to think that every day is Valentine's!!


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥
