Ok, let me paint a picture first.... Firstly the 13th Feb happens to be our anniversary (of first meeting, 5th this year btw) the last 3 years i/we haven't had the money to do anything beyond a card and maybe a crappy petrol station bouquet... So this year was different, had some money, bought a nice bracelet i knew she would love, card, dinner for 2 at a good restaurant (Â£60-Â£70 per head for 2 course) had a nice time, came home, got a good film that i knew she'd enjoy. All in all had a lovely evening she really enjoyed it and appreciated it! Id also ordered a matching necklace for today but didn't turn up as out of stock, ok so i've known about that about 3 days (but its on back order and paid for so couldn't go else where to get it!) Knowing that we had a great time last night, her knowing about the necklace (which i explained about yesterday and being cool about) thought that all would be good with the valentines day card, she'll understand and we can go out at the weekend as way of recompense.... I've been busy at work today, she's had a busy day at work... Ok so i would have gone and picked up a nice bouquet from a florist anyway, but well unfortunate things happen and it completely slipped my mind on the worst day possible! So normally id have jumped back in the car and shot off to get some, only it was too late she was coming down the street when it hit me that i had forgotten them! So i thought, no, she'll be cool after yesterday and i didn't totally forget valentines... She will understand and be cool, and ill make it up over the weekend right? WRONG.... She comes in, seems ok at first can tell shes been busy but doesn't seem too bad. She sees the card, ok, opens it, all ok, has a pace about (i can see shes not happy with something) all f'ing hell let loose about valentines day, and not even a flower. It wasn't intentional to forgo valentines because of the anniversary, wasn't even like i forgot (card filled in and ready all week) just failed to get flowers on way home! I just expected her to be a little more mature about it and appreciative of the thought in general (we are middle aged after all) I'd appreciate and suggestions on how i can make up for it, shes tetchy and gonna be like it for days if i can't! I love her so id rather not have "get rid" off anyone.
