I have heard it is customary to bring a rose to your loved ones on a certain date last month. Strictly speaking these were already given but I thought it a nice gesture to bring one to the Mrs to show how much I appreciate her. The fact that I had to select it from the already carefully arranged vase without her noticing and get the Boss to clear up the resulting mess was immaterial to the thought I put into it. She seemed really impressed with me but rather less so with the Boss as apparently he had not remembered himself, the colour was wrong and he was rubbish at flower arranging! There is just no pleasing some women! I thought it was red……but she loves me anyway!
