Over the next few days, leading up to February 14th, aka St. Valentine's Day, convoys of postal trucks come into the Leek from all directions. Destination, my place. Apologies to you if you happen to live in Leek. For once, the traffic chaos is not being caused by roadworks. Yes, the roadworks that never seem to have anybody working on them.
My home becomes so full of Valentine's Day cards that there's barely room to swing a cat, not like I would actually swing a cat.
In the spirit of romance, I thought I'd suggest a Valentine's Day money saving tip. The day before Valentine's Day, if you have a partner, have a massive argument with your partner. The day after Valentine's Day, make up with your partner and offer them the Valentine's Day gifts you purchased at a drastically reduced price. In my case, not having a partner, I will have a massive argument with myself. Then treat myself to drastically reduced Valentine's Day gifts on February 15th. You're welcome and who said romance was dead!
