BLAISE TAPP: Even in the 21st century, you can't beat old-fashioned playtime

Have your say

For many of us, Valentine’s Day came and went without our hearts skipping a beat.

Long forlorn gazes at the vacant front door mat, the pungent posy of roses being ferried through the office under the twitching hooters of an entire workforce before they’re handed to an unsuspecting-cum-smug individual.

I’m as romantic as WD40, but I always try to make some form of effort. Any person suffering 10 years of marriage to me deserves credit.

So if February 14 didn’t work out for you, do the right thing today.

Head out to your nearest supermarket or card shop, then buy and consume your body weight in discounted Valentine’s chocolate.
