Now don’t be a wuss this Valentine’s Day!
Leave the flowers blooming in their fields and the chocolate wrapped and on the shelf. (Well, maybe one small box??!!)
Give your beloved an experience to remember. There are so many fantastic things to do in Sydney.
I have had a great old time looking at some of the special treats that we can do in Sydney – some adventures and some pure indulgence.
Come on, parents, make some time for the two of you.
Find a babysitter and give each other the gift of time together doing something special.

Man, I’d love to go up to Jonah’s. Paul and I once stayed there many years ago when we were in the midst of a very hard patch.
Our kind friends Kate and Steve who run Huskisson Bed and Breakfast looked after our then very little boys. It helped pull us out of a disastrous spiral.
Mind you, I don’t think Paul would be thrilled if I spend over $1000 on a Valentine’s Day gift! Grounds for divorce!
A special time out for a picnic, a kayak around the Harbour, a lovely lunch, these sorts of experiences are worth a hundred bits of stuff… a bit of time away together with no kids is gold.
What are your thoughts for Valentine’s Day?
Do experiences beat goods and chattels for you?
Happy hunting (and smooching)
