It's one of those days where, it should be very sweet and lovely, you get a card from your admirer, maybe a few flowers... but it's grown into a monster. Go into any supermarket and see the piles and piles of plastic tubs of sweets, boxes of chocolates piled high, lots of fake roses lots of tacky pink plastic... Was it always a gift buying opportunity? It's just a money making scheme now for supermarkets, restaurants and florists... And anyway, it's always Valentine's Day in my house.

Just tell the Mrs that your love transcends material gifts.

Yeah exactly. It's almost a protest now to not buy any of that tacky ****.

Awww... if you're buying chocolates, that's the kind of box to get.

LOL.... you rebel.

I've told my fella not to presents because it's such a rip-off.

Also, what's with the flowers they're flogging this year? Morrisons are doing rainbow roses, white roses, dyed.... yuk... and florists are sticking fake diamond pins into the middle of roses and sprinkling them with glitter. Does the term "guiding the lily" mean nothing to these people?

And it builds up your Brownie points.

A great time of the year to be a florist or a restaurant owner.
