I know it's Valentines Day it's all meant to be cards, wines and chocolates but Mr T and myself are practical souls even though we've married nearly 20 years.
For that amount of years it's definitely understandering and compromise , for instance Mr T doesn't know he wants to purchase something until it's purchased half of the time . Mr T has always wanted a dog but I'm allergic to dogs and even the quiets ones bark at me , pssst I'm allergic to cats to but less so as I grew up with them .
See I did get him a card and it wasn't even in the sale , though I 'll back sure I pick one up for next year , not white this doesn't sound terribly romantic , I feel that saving money allows us to have many a fantastic holiday .
Mr T wants a piece of art to hang over the bed , is it a picture of me I hear you ask ? no we've not decided on what it is yet I've vetteod all Mr T's suggestions , I want something that's unique and not available from every flatpack Scandinavian store so as yet the wall is blank. We will get something eventually I'll probably end up getting it and Mr T will agree , it is a combination of ideas that makes for a successful relationship.
I must admit I do things on a whim it's not unheard for me to come back with hoards of vintage items and Mr T has given up keeping up with my eclectic tastes . Last year I did pick our bed up in one of those Black Friday so then Mr T had to take down and get rid of our old bed , marriage I think is the ultimate game show at times but one where you've already won the prize.
At some point I'll change the mattress as you normally do every 8-10 years and I will certainly look at Bed Guru where they do all sorts of mattresses including ones that cater for different sleeping needs if you and you're partner are of different builds.
