I've managed twice in the last 5 years.

Trouble is that everytime since when I hand her the obligatory cards, chocs and pressie I get the icy "I still remember the time you f**ked up boyo" look. Albeit accompanied with a smile...f**king eerie.

Seeing a Valentine was a geezer...and it's HIS day...why are us guys expected to pull out all the stops and pay for any meals?

No mate. My apologies I thought you said Hows a bloke supposed to forget "THIS" anniversary not "HIS" anniversary.

I forgotten Valentines day twice...well not true..just couldnt be f**king arsed to go trudging through endless inane bullshit Maya Angelou cards in Hallmark. Settled for a quick nip into the offy and a bottle of cheap plonk. Not a good idea apparently.

I'll be doing the Maya Angelou/hallmark bullshit from now on. Well, until I lose my sex drive anyway.

St Valentines day Bahh!!! Load of old bollocks.

Oh, you guys are so ansi...

I always get a Valentines day card for my Mum, my Dog, my kids, my work colleagues, my neigbOURS and my father-in-law.... You have to, right ? They sell the cards for all of them. Although, I do get a bit confused as the only card I can get is something like "Happy Valentines Day Father-in-Law" - and - even though I don't sign it, he knows who it's from :scared:

I can't wait for all my wifes friends to wear there love heart sweaters and then, oh what bliss after that, the sweaters with the Easter Bunnies...

How bloody sweet....

No way. I've been looking for a "Happy Monday" card to celebrate the beginning of each working week. I know my colleagues would appreciate it.
