Valentines Day is exactly 2 weeks away and its time to start prep for what is suppose to be the most romantic day of the year. If you are married then this can be a good excuse for a night away and if you are single then whats to stop you getting all dolled up and cracking open that wine, box of chocolates and jigsaw! (I know what I will probably be doing come Valentines night and it involves a whopping bar of Green & Blacks and a brand new Wasgij!)
Then again, since I am in limbo at the moment without definite plans for the big day I thought I would go all out and tell you how I would prep for my dream Valentine date including links to some fabulous hidden gems and of course all the necessaries to make sure your night goes with a bang! 😉
My ideal Valentines Day would include being whisked away to a secluded wooden lodge in the middle of nowhere. A hot tub outside and nothing but bird noise, just the two of us (sorry kids!) On arrival a glass of something fizzy would be waiting along with fresh strawberries to enjoy as we wait for the sun to set. (Who else loves Pretty Woman – haha!)
As the sun sets we would sit outside wrapped in blankets contemplating the day and letting all the worries soak away before hopping into the hot tub to start and heat things up! I don’t know why but no matter what the weather is like I always imagine sitting outside with a glass of wine on a date – seriously if I followed this through I would end up with pneumonia thanks to the ever reliable damp English weather!
At home I am a Wonder Woman pj and fluffy socks kind of girl but i suppose with it being Valentines day we should opt for a little less coverage, a little shall we say… sexier! (again sorry kids because i know at some point you may read this and vomit in your mouth slightly at the thought of your mother getting sexy in a wooden lodge somewhere but believe me this has never happened and this post is simply hypothetical dreaming!)
Anyway, where was I!? Oh Yes… getting my sexy on!
Well, I found a fabulous lingerie website called Hunkemoller and stumbled upon the most amazing kimono that is pretty damn hot! (Yes please, you will look amazing hung on the back of my bedroom door in the sheer hope of having a love life again…) SO, dressed in my finest kimono and a spritz of my favourite perfume I would be led through a rose petal strewn corridor to a candle lit bedroom (the mother in me is internally yelling THIS IS A GOD DAMN FIRE HAZZARD while the rest of me eagerly hopes he is about to whip out a giant bar of chocolate and tell me to kick back while he does the dishes!) BLISS!
Of course now I am a single girl I have entered the minefield again so *cough* precautions would have to be taken and low and behold did you know there are different varieties?! No? Me either! There are flavoured ones, bumpy ones and HOLY CRAP IS THAT A LIGHT SABER, oh dear me there are even glow in the dark condoms! ONE is a selection of 12 from Superdrug……12!!
As soon as my head hits the bed though all thought of extra curriculars go out of the window and I just want an uninterrupted night sleep – I mean, come on, if you had a choice of a child free night what would you be wishing for!?
Happy Valentines Lovelies – stay safe!!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
