St. Valentine’s day.

Don’t forget lads and lassies that next Sunday is St. Valentine’s Day . There are plenty of great eating houses in the vicinity but I’m thinking you should book early to be sure of your place. Lads , flowers always go down well with the ladies, but as half the female population is on a diet I’m not too sure about the chocolates . I’ d go for the Perfume , or maybe a weekend in Paris or New York if you really want to score brownie points !! Ladies just praise him, tell him he ‘s wonderful , make yourself beautiful and he might not even notice if you don’t get him a present.( But if he’s deserving  ……go get one )
