Am I Married to the Most Unromantic Man in the World?

image credit:

I can’t say that I am surprised, but I will say that I am disappointed.

Actually, we are all friends here right?  I’m not just disappointed, I’m gutted.


This morning Hubbster called to say that awesome mother-in-law #2 (yes I have two of them, and shock horror, I love them both.  I know!  What are the chances of that, eh?  Try not to hate for it though, k?)…..what was I saying?  Oh yes, awesome mother-in-law #2 had offered to come and babysit for Bubble, Foghorn and The Woo tomorrow evening so that we could go out for dinner.

Firstly – I was excited that someone had offered and we hadn’t had to ask.  I know both MIL’s will if we ask, but we often don’t like to, so it was extra excited for it to be offered.  Do you know what I mean?

Dinner…just the two of us!  I don’t want to sound easily pleased (even though I am) but I would be happy to sit on our local foreshore (in a jacket and beanie if need be) with a glass of wine and some fish and chips.

Later however, Hubbster had a sudden revelation.

Tuesday, (Valentine’s Day or not) is tennis night.

And you know….he couldn’t possibly let his team down could he?


Remember what I told you the other week about what I would like to do with that tennis racket?  Yeah that!!!

Will you be spoiled this Valentine’s Day?  Or is has your guy adopted the ‘Valentine’s Day is just a Hallmark Holiday’ phrase in order to cover his laziness in the romance department?

If you do get spoiled please tell me all about it.  I want to believe that romance is still alive.

And, in case you are wondering, no…there is absolutely bog-all chance that he is planning on suprising me.  I know he loves me but I can’t help wishing that he could be more romantic.  

How does your man fair in this department?





Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
