Well, another year, another Valentine’s day, another one spent alone (cue violin). It was my intention to head to the gym, but seeing the barrage of depressed singletons heading in made me think twice. Instead I ditched the gym, headed to M&S and bought four fruit tarts (yes, 4!), which I ate within 10 minutes. A new low?

Having to then dart between couples walking hand in hand, carrying roses through the tube station aggravated me further; I have very little tolerance on the tube anyway, let alone when it’s blocked by couples leaving no space to walk between them – I was close to ‘kissing teeth’…

I’m not against Valentine’s Day, but it does remind singletons to get paired up fast, as to avoid being found dead in your flat having choked on cake, with no one to revive you.

Oh well, there’s always next year…

Also, this photo is one of the worst things I have ever seen and it is a summary of what’s wrong with the world…
