When Was The Last Time You Bought Flowers?


#1

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?


#2

Oh mate :confused:


#3

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


#4

this week! i buy em every couple weeks for the missus (but also because i like plants being in the house)


#5

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.


#6

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

29 May 2018

£5 for a big bunch. They lasted until 5 June 2018.

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.

ERM. did you do a through the keyhole video? :o


#10

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


#11

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


#12

Got myself some daffodils not long ago :blush: thanks me


#13

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:


#15

It was a few months ago now I think.


#16

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


#17

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


#18

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?


#19

fuck candles forever. A loves them. I just don’t get it. I will never get it. STOP BUYING CANDLES
