Here I sit at my PC. It is lunchtime and I am eating left-over chili with nachos. Mmmm, always good the day after this stuff.
Yet again, Mrs RC and I have celebrated this day with cards and gifts. Must be about the 4th year now!
We never used to do anything special on this day. For years it was a case of being broke at this time of year, so rather than become even more broke we just let it go. Why did we need to do something special on this day when we shared our love every day?
I am not totally sure why things changed - I have a sneaky feeling that certain bloggers made me feel bad for not making extra effort for a special day. Anyway, I did it one year and Mrs RC loved it - despite her previous declarations that if I ever bought her something for Valentine's Day she would assume I was cheating...
Was this yet another one of those things that men misunderstand about women? Maybe.
Still, since then we have become dedicated to the day, giving each other mushy cards and suitable presents, such as bottles of wine and guitar strings. OK, that is what Mrs RC tends to get for me, but you knew that really.
OK, better finish my lunch! I have got a photo blog of a wargame to post soon, maybe later today if I am good!
