First Valentine Nerves

Oh, the nerves! When I first started dating my now-husband, I wasn't quite sure whether he celebrated Valentines day or not. Would I get a card... or even red roses?

We come from two completely different cultures and I just wasn't sure whether he'd think of giving me something for Valentine's day or not.

Also, it was still early days for us so I felt that asking or even hinting could have come across a little too forward – and infuriatingly, he just never said a word about it.

So I bit my lip and made him a chocolate cake in the shape of a heart, just in case. I thought I'd save it and wait and see if he brought me flowers. If he failed, I'd eat the whole darn cake by myself over a romantic comedy film later.

But, I had nothing to worry about – later that evening when he came to pick me up for a date he arrived with a beautiful boquet of red roses and then took me to a lovely restaurant.

Needless to say, the roses went down rather well with me (and he absolutely loved the chocolate cake).
