Funny Valentine

Some might say Valentine’s Day is purely an overhyped commercial exercise in getting us to part with our money.

But we’re not cynics on this page.

I saw the heartwarming sight of an earnest looking lad striding through Tesco’s carrying a big bunch of roses and an equally big card with girlfriend emblazoned on it. Dishevelled and unshaven, he was a man on a mission to prove he was a romantic at heart.

I could never understand why Frank and Nancy Sinatra, and later Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman, sang about spoiling things by saying I love you.

It’s always nice to hear those words, even if Clinton Cards has had to give your other half a nudge to express them.
