Anyway, my mother-in-law found herself in hospital last week. She's still there under a litany of tests, medicated drips and needles. Her devoted hubby has a fold up bed next to her, where he stays on hand to advocate for her and provide support. What more could you ask in a Valentine? Still there won't be much chance for them to shop gifts and cards this year so the family are volunteering to curate and buy a selection.
We've turned it into a playful competition, since it will be so fun to guess who chose what! This kind of game also allows us all to focus on the good things.
So if you are looking for ideas, check out my Pinterest page here . I'm still adding more ideas so be sure to follow the board if you would like to see new ideas.
If you're looking for something different this year, I run MBTI sessions for couples, so that you can learn about each other through the lens of Myers Briggs. Do you get energised by the same things, do you both like your social life busy, or more measured? Do you speak the same language, who is the most practical, if at all? Who considers the future, who likes to get organised and who likes to delay decisions and research the options?
