Valentine’s with the Inlaws

Yesterday afternoon we popped to the Inlaws for a cuppa and a chat. While my partner was in the kitchen with my mother-in-law, I discussed the surprise Id planned for February 14th.A romantic break for 2 with champagne, roses, chocoates, a horse-drawn carriage ride, 3-course meal and breakfast in bed with a personalised card.

“Ooh, where did you find a deal like that?” said my father-in-law. So I told him.

Big Mistake!!

This morning, I get a phone call from my father-in-law, telling me how he went online (instantly regretting teaching him how to use a computer) and booked the same thing for him and his wife. AND he booked a spa day (the spa was having a valentine special) for the four of us complete with a group massage and facial. AND he’s decided we will save on fuel and all drive down together.(This sort of ruins my plan to drive somewhere secluded and have a passionate moment with my wife).Then, just when I think it can’t get any worse he says :Oh yes, I got us adjoining rooms too!”

Somehow, I just dont think Valentine’s day will be all that romantic this year!
