Today is my/ our anniversary
Dh said yesterday.. " oh were not celebration tomorrow are we" this was more statement than question.
I had already got the card written and presents sorted. again this year.. he obviously hasn't again this year.. and so thought he'd just tell me we weren't doing it!
So I have put the pressy away.. and have left the card on the table for him.

I just wanted to go for a meal, but nope he'll be having a poker night on the comp for himself when he gets in.
AIBU to be a tad fed up?

We have the same sort of thing in our house. DH says about a week before 'we wont bother with presents this year as we have no money' blah blah blah...

I wouldn't mind so much but he'll alway accept the presents I offer. I am not offering this years, it will go to someone who deserves it.
A bloody bunch of garage flowers would do.!
sorry for you too

oh bit soon to give up on marking the occasion! Tell him to pull his finger out and lavish you with attention - making a fuss of each other doesn't cost much....

LOL I have only ever had one card from him!!
think he gave up the day after we got married!

Tell him that you are celebrating it even if he is not, so if he really doesnt want to do anything then you will go and celebrate with your friends instead (and make sure you do!)
