My Valentines Day Strategy

Today is definitely one of my favourite days of the year. It is a day that makes me feel all giddy inside, fills me with expectation of great moments to come, and evokes dreamy eyed fantasies of what might be. YES gentleman, today the Sharks and the Stormers start their Super 14 rugby campaign, with the added bonus that this year, their opening game is against each other, isn’t that a mouth-watering prospect!

Unfortunately it does coincide with that money making racket they call Valentines Day which as they say in the classics, is somewhat of Bummer. How do you wine and dine that special somebody on a day where rugby simply has to take precedence...... without landing yourself in hot water that is.

If I so say so myself, this year I came up with a brilliant strategy that really seems to have done the trick. The preasent I bought her is of something fairly extravagant which I dare say way exceeded expectation. What aided this initiative is that my track record for buying her decent quality gifts really isn’t the greatest. I then followed it up by taking her to a nice outdoor garden restaurant for breakfast and needless to say, I now have the afternoon free to watch the game with her blessing, and I'm still very much in the good books.

:) Let the Games Begin........
