When Was The Last Time You Bought Flowers?

Been ages for me. Got into the habit of buying them after doing something stupid / having an argument with the TV and then she asked me to stop buying them because now they had an association with unhappy times for her.

I ruined flowers for someone. hbu?

Oh mate :confused:

I think it would probably have been around two years ago or so.

I definitely have in the last month or so, but I can’t remember exactly when, because I don’t want to do it for a particular reason or because I’ve done something wrong. Maybe I’ll get some more this weekend.

Whenever mother’s day was, through some non-unionised Mexican equivalent to Interflora.

Peonies are in season rn and they’re one of the tv’s favourite flowers so I bought some last week. As evidenced in my through the keyhole video they will be long dead before they’re thrown away.

I used to work with a guy who bought his wife a big bunch of flowers every friday, he’d buy them at lunch then bring them into the office- actually it might have been every other Friday which is worse somehow

The marriage didn’t last

I am now trying to buck that trend and only buy them at neutral / good times.

The morning of the Champions League final. Unrelated to the fact that I was watching the final as part of an all day drinking session with a load of mates.

Buy flowers about twice a month anyway because after my wife’s Mum died we resolved to always have a bunch of her favourite flowers in the house, in memory. 5 years on and we’ve maintained it religiously.

Good on you la. They’re a beautiful thing to have in your abode aren’t they. Subsequently living with a female woman has given me a really vested interest in candles :man_shrugging:

It was a few months ago now I think.

May 14th, when ‘er indoors started her new job (does that make her’ er outdoors? Unsure).

No, they make me sneeze and can fuck off. I get enough of that shit from outside.

I have, occasionally, got some with the online shopping.

After the initial gifting of the flowers, it’s not like there’s going to be any difference between them and some bought from a florists, is there?

Right lads telly’s on, check; Bob, you brought the beers, check; Crispin, pizzas on the way, check; Geoff don’t tell me you forgot the flowers…

They are good. I try to avoid those ones that have that pollen which ruins any clothing it comes into contact with though. I forget their name.

Aye any with the stamen showing can get tae.

I would suggest you buy better candles. Living room smells like oud wood* at the moment and it is delightful.
