A couple of days to go until Valentine’s Day, and if you’re reading this in the hope of inspiration, it seems you’ve taken my usual stance – a wild-eyed panic, hours before the big moment with nothing to show for 13 years together (oh dear, does that mean bad luck this year) except an apologetic hug.
So here we go, ideas to please the ladeeeeez. Buy for your wife, mum, sister or if you’re reading this and think your other half might not pull through with anything half decent, your lovely self.
