All too often it was the day where I would be the person who didn’t receive a card and had to make jokes about sending cards to myself.
Which I never did, by the way.
I only ever sent one, in 1996, and I’ve received all of two valentine’s cards in my life. And one of them was a joke, I think.
But what are you supposed to DO, or BUY – I mean, MSN advises you that a nice champagne for under Â£40 combined with a Will Young CD will do the job, but frankly I’m not sure that’s what I’m after. Think a Will Young CD might just be insulting.
At the end of the day it’s just something else to worry about, isn’t it? Like Mother’s day. How to make your Mother love you more even when it’s no longer convenient to pop down to a newsagents and buy one of the two remaining Telegraphs.
I wish I was like Tony Blair and had other people to deal with it for me.
I’m a bit pissed, by the way, and it’s only 14.33.
Any ideas, though………
