I know Valentine’s can be a bit of weird holiday and I myself have never really celebrated it. For me it’s a really nice excuse (not that I need one) to go out and spend some time with my favourite people, where that’s family, friends or your partner. I am actually working on Valentines this year so we celebrated it the other day. It was a perfect day for me, super chill, but I find the little things you do are always the most special. I’m going to run you through what I did on that day, as our little celebration for valentines. (fyi my boyfriend is called Peter and that’s who I celebarted with BUT you celebrate with whoever you want or just treat yourself!)
Have a super chill morning
The best way to start the day is by sleeping in, you wake up feeling so refreshed and relaxed. We had a cuppa tea in bed and just caught up on the news before doing anything else. Had a quick bit of breakfast but nothing too much as we had plans for lunch.
After we were up and about, we took the pup for a walk, it was such a nice bright day, so it was really nice and peaceful. I love dog walks because for me it’s quality time with someone without any distractions. You can just walk, distress and talk about whatever you want.
Next, we headed into town, we only had a few things to do, boring things like the bank but also I wanted to get some homeware bits. So we just spent some time bobbing around the shops, I love shopping with my boyfriend, we always end up having such a laugh and just joking around. I ended up picking up a bunch of homeware stuff from Primark (soon to be seen in my flat ways and maybe a Primark haul…).
After a bit of shopping we went for lunch, we LOVE going out for meals, we always looking for new places to try as we are both such foodies. So a meal was always on the cards for us. I’d wanted to try a pub style place in York called Brigantes. It wasn’t anything fancy, but we’re not fancy so it was the perfect pub grub. I always try not to worry about money when you eat out, as it can be a real downer if you’re just worrying about what everything is going to cost, so we always just get what we want and try not to think about the money. We had nachos to share to start, then I had a fish butty, and Peter had a burger. A few drinks (Gin for me obviously) and coffees after. Lovely!
More relaxing time
After our meal we had a quick stroll up to the Peter’s new house that he’ll be moving into soon, then it started to get dark, (since it get’s dark at 4pm) so took and nice long walk home for a cuppa and a bit more relaxing! We didn’t have any dinner as we ate soooooo much at lunch, so we just chilled and watched bit of TV, before heading to bed to do a crossword (super grannyish I know).
I know it doesn’t sound like anything special, but it was so lovely just to have a dedicated day to spend with that one person. It’s so hard to find time to do stuff like that when we are both so busy. I had such a nice day, so for me it was the perfect low key Valentine’s.
I’d love to know what your idea of a perfect valentines would be!
