A Valentine meal with who ?

Posted: Today at 02:15

We can have a special valentine night here. The bedroom four poster will get red drapes. We get a bottle of baileys and some chocolate covered strawberries.

I'm going diving instead. 

There is a bottle of fizz in the fridge, and I bought a card from home, and some hotel chocolat caramel chocolate hearts. That will do. Sometimes my head rules the wallet.

Good night everyone, it looks like you're all in bed.

Ive just seen the news. I hope everyone is OK. Verdun, keep off the beaches. I'm sure spike will cope with a quickie in the back garden.

Clarington, its time your boss got the sack. Total incompetence. There is no reason whatsoever that he couldnt do a direct bank transfer ,unless there is no money in the account and he is stalling for time. I'm off to the managers cocktail party. Pina Colada, here I come.
