Happy Valentines Day everyone! Yeah, it’s that day of the year again where you fit into one of the following categories:

  • Spoiled by gifts and affection and find yourself uploading to social media for the world to see
  • Receive nothing and it makes you so angry your mouth foams like a rabid dog
  • Don’t give a shit but still acknowledge the day by saying the mandatory line to your significant other
  • Don’t give a shit but are guilt tripped into it by your significant other to pretend you give a shit
  • Do the washing, fold the washing, get grocery shopping done, light housework and feed the house and then remember it’s V-Day but don’t give a shit…

Regardless of where you fit into this list, perhaps you don’t, there is always the Herald Sun’s Pullout section -The Love Book to get you through the day. With coffee in hand I began the perusing and came across some regular patterns and here’s what I found. *Secretly I was checking to see if Ben gave a shit… hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

People really are ‘in love’ and still call each other pet names, even Bae; which means poo in Danish. That’s true love right? “I love you Poo”.

Teachers, parents and family members all get some love too, even if I had to cook my own eggs this morning, so long as Mum and Dad NG are feeling the love :/

So there really is something for everybody.

I hope you all had a fab Sunday, and for those of you with broken hearts and wishing for a bunch of flowers, or chocolate from random man riding a horse, holding flowers coming down your driveway… there’s always next years edition of the Love Book.

Make sure you turn the teapot twice clockwise and once anticlockwise!
