I must admit I have struggled with this one - mainly because I will be surprised if I get anything for Valentine's Day! The Farmer and I don't make a huge deal of it. I will be lucky if I get a card and some flowers. To be honest I won't be upset if even that is not forthcoming....
Anyway - in a perfect world, this is what I would like.
1. For The Farmer To Remember Valentine's Day.
Whether he does or doesn't will largely be up to me. After being married for several years I have decided that it is useless expecting the male of the outfit to remember important anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Day etc. Basically, as the wife/female partner, it is your job to remind him. Constantly. I have discovered lots of ways to do this. Emails, notes and other hints that aren't subtle at all tend to work best.
In the words of Jilly Cooper
"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness, can be trained to do most things."So ladies - train your man well.
I am not fussy. A bunch picked from the garden would be perfect.

3. A Bottle Of Champagne
Actually it doesn't even have to be the French stuff (although I wouldn't say no). A bottle of good Australian Sparkling would do the trick.
4. For Someone Else To Cook Dinner
A meal cooked by anyone else would hit the spot.
While this is very unlikely to come my way for Valentine's Day, I definitely wouldn't complain.... (Actually I shouldn't complain anyway because The Farmer has been very generous in the jewellery giving department over the years. Darling, on the off chance you are reading this, I appreciate it.)
