Forgive me if I have blogged about this before.. but seeing that tomorrow is Valentine's Day.. I thought it was perhaps appropriate to repeat it!
My very first date with Chris was in the Sheffield City Centre wine bar ALL BAR ONE.
I was trying to impress ( so actually looked clean and tidy for a change) and because he didn't at that time live in the city.. the night was my treat!
We drank a bottle of wine
We chatted and laughed
We ate and drank some more
and we flirted outrageously
OKOK we got all a bit silly and just a little drunk... but it was fun!
When It was time to go, the waiter ( who I knew) glided up to our table so I could pay the fairly substantial bill and trying to look cool, urbane, in charge and witty I took my debit card out of my pocket and slid it coolly across the table at him
He took it, smiled gently then slid it back to me
I missed the real point of his actions and slid it right back at him
He repeated his actions and slid the card back at me
I turned my head with a quizzical expression
as he said quietly right into my ear
"We don't take Sainsbury's saver cards in here sir"
I could have died
Chris had to pay for everything!
A couple of months later he moved in!hey ho
