February: the month of romance and St Valentine. Ok, the month of not being able to go out without seeing shiny red hearts everywhere : whether they be balloons, chocolates or satin cushions. And the month of being persuaded at every turn to swop your cash for a cute little teddy or some chocolates wrapped in pink shiny foil. As I like to live dangerously I’ve asked around for romantic posts this month. Now I know we are all by definition parent bloggers and so can have no room for romance in our lives. Nevertheless the silence has been deafening. Undeterred, I have stuck with my theme and cast my net a little wider than usual and brought in some bloggers who like nothing more than writing about first dates and sex – some of which I’ve sadly had to exclude due to the very precise nature of their recollections.
Enough of sex – for now and thank goodness for Stay at Home Dad, who as usual does not mince his words with his spot on post why valentines day sucks the sweat from a dead tramp’s balls.
Moving away from Valentine’s Day and onto funny love stories this one made me laugh. The way to a man’s heart may be through his stomach but this may be the way to a woman’s!
