I was giving this a moments thought, today it is flowers, chocolates and takeaway from Deliveroo (other services are available) that seems to the way to celebrate Valentines day.
In our home when I was a kid, it was a big bunch of flowers, my Dad would bring a big bag of steak home and my mum would cook it. Then they would settle down, knock back a few bottles of Guinness, smoke a couple of packs of ciggies and watch the Morecombe and Wise show, or whatever the BBC served up for us. I always associated a big, juicy steak with the day, which became awkward when I married Clare as she's a non meat eater. Anyway, enough of that, here's the joke!
My favourite Valentines joke?
And my favourite Valentines day song? Has to be New Rose by The Damned!
