Happy Valentine’s Day to all the lovers out there!
This is my Valentine Day Song for you!
New Kids On The Block – Valentine Girl
There’s not a star in the sky
That could equal to the sparkle in your eyes
This card is only one way
To let you know just how I feel
Will you be my Valentine girl
And I’ll give you my heart
Be my Valentine girl
And I won’t let you go
All of the flowers I’ve sent
Could never take the place
Of being there
Although we only just met
You’re everything to me
Be my, my Valentine girl
I need you
I want you
I want you in my world
I’ll be there for you
Will you be there for me too
Two weeks to go till the official most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day!
It may seem a long time away but if you don’t know what to give to your loved one this year, here are some simple ideas:
1. Love letter (from blog posted on 6/12/2011)
What you can include in your love letter:
- Add dry rose pedal
- A dozen of reasons why you love him/her
- Spray the letter with your favourite perfume
- Cut out of your lip shape pressed against a paper
2. Gift Idea (from blog posted on 13/12/2011)
- Why not record you voice reading poem?
- Why not compile a CD containing romantic song?
- Why not play a music instrument and record it?
3. Other ideas
The trend of Groupon and Wowcher are becoming popular. Why not create your own vouchers and give them to your loved ones with no expiry date. For Example:
- A voucher for ready made bubble bath
- A voucher for gourmet meal candlelit dinner
- A voucher for Full English breakfast in bed
- A voucher for 15 minutes back&shoulder massage
- A voucher for shopping spree worth £50
What are your voucher ideas?
As the primary carer of my baby, my time and energy have been shifted to keep up with the increased demand and need. Thus I need to take a step back on my blog writing. I will however do my best to continue with my blog but maybe not on a weekly basis.
Thank you for your understanding and for visiting my site!
- Have you ever ended up getting more upset because of what your partner says?
- Don’t you wish that your partner knows what words to avoid using?
- Don’t you wish your partner is more coinscious about what not to say?
Following from last week’s blog about using words to set your new year resolution, this week I like to share about the importance certain words have on your long distance argument especially when you are dealing with sensitive or vulnerable people:
What are some of those words?
These are simple and harmless words. But when you use them during your disagreement, it makes a difference on how much the other person will listen on the other end of the phone.
“You are not GOOD at X”. If you change the word GOOD to NEW, it sounds better ie: you are not NEW at X
“Your BAD habit of doing X has been bothering me”. If you change the word BAD to OLD it sounds better ie: your OLD habit…
By simply replace some of the words that you use in your everyday talk, you can start to create a positive and more pleasant conversation.
I’m right I agree
You are wrong I don’t understand
What word(s) do you not like hearing?
William Buist wrote a blog on ecademy.com about Three Words for 2012 based on Chris Brogan take on the idea of a resolution, and instead, to come up with 3 words that will help you define your goals and experiences for the coming year.
My 3 words for this year are Bonding Motherhood Writing or BMW:
- Bonding – create quality time to reconnect with my husband
- Motherhood – be a good exemplar for my baby girl
- Writing – learn to be an interesting and inspirational blogger
For your relationship, what are going to be yours?
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!
Let’s let it be a year when you:
- Celebrate over the new beginning
- Accept the challenges with optimism
- Make things happen
- Love truly
- Laugh uncontrollably
- Forgive quickly
May sky be the limit for your happiness this New Year and always! Wishing you love and success in your Long Distance Relationship!
After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counselling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched -with a raised eyebrow.
The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.
The therapist turned to the husband and said, ‘this is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?’
‘Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.’
