Valentine surprise

As we have just shifted house and not fully unpacked yet, things are still rather chaotic on the home front. I have also been working very late to try to meet several deadlines before the Chinese New Year holidays. Each night after work, I would reach home at about 10pm and after grabbing a quick dinner, shower and spend some time with Yiu Yiu before she sleeps, I'll again switch on my laptop to work.

I knew Valentine was just around the corner but didn't pay any attention to it as Valentine has never been a big deal for us. I don't subscribe to spending obscene amount of $$$ to have a romantic dinner which would only cost half as much on a normal day; neither will I expect hubby to buy me flowers on Valentine, again due to the much inflated prices. He knows that, and makes up for it by sending me flowers on my birthday; and he has never failed to do that since our courting days.

So when I walked into the bedroom and saw a little box wrapped with shiny blue paper and dressed with a silver ribbon, I was pleasantly surprised! Inside was a chic pair of diamond dress earrings, which I wore to work the very next day. Come to think of it, this may the first ever Valentine gift I received from hubby, though we do buy things for one another on and off. I must admit that this was a nice touch, but I hang my head in shame for not having thought about getting him something on this special occasion.
