Happy what?

So, it's Valentine's Day on Sunday. It's a day so many people look forward to, to being loved up, spoiled and generally having a mushy day.

Not in this house.

For three weeks now, Mark has been grumbling on about how it's all a media and consumer hype to rake in the cash from the general public. My protestations of, 'but it's a day to let someone that you love (ie, me) know how you feel about them'.

I'm sure I've mentioned before, in fact I know I have, that Mark is the most unromantic person I've ever known. He is not demonstrative, at all. I'm a touchy, feely type of person. I need to know that I'm loved and there is nothing better than getting a cuddle for no reason. But that never happens in our house. I am supposed to know he loves me by the fact that he comes home every night, or by the fact that he made me a cup of coffee. (also a rare occasion).

I e-mailed the message above to him at work today. He replied (there's an achievement in itself) saying 'oh how well you know me'. LOL

So will he or won't he? Will he bother buying a card despite all his complaints, just so that it makes me happy? Or will he stick to his guns and say it's all a huge waste of time and money?

Time will tell.
