It’s that day again. Seems like it was only last year we did this. There is no escaping the gaudy, red frenzy which approaches. Couples struggle to impress each other. Singletons are made to feel inadequate. Long time daters feel the pressure to propose in extraordinary ways and Bridget Jones fans across the country reach for the PJs and red wine. Valentines day has become synonymous with hassle. Why not turn ‘a nil event’ (one for the Countdown fans) into a ‘navel nite’ (look it up) by venturing out for some inspired entertainment this Valentines Week:
