3.30pm. NVG, opening the boys' enormous plastic bags full of Valentines gifts from school today.
Let's have a look at this.....whoah, don't just dump it all on the table, let's get it out carefully.
And this is from.....Tara? Lara? Oh, OK. Wow. Lovely. Homebaked cookies in a little bag all tied up with pink ribbons. Lara's mother obviously cares a great deal about Valentine's Day. (Mutters) Alternatively, she has FAR too much time on her hands......
And this is from Kate. Well, I'm glad to see they bought the same cheap crappy cards with a Dumdum lollipop as us!
Ah, that's interesting. Boy with very rich, influential parents....the tiniest, most rubbish looking cards in the bag. Glad I'm not the worst cheapskate in town.!
Blimey, this mother's printed out a special card with her child's face on it......
More pencils. Oh joy. Put them in the pencil box. And hologram stickers....no, you can't eat them. A little heart shaped notebook. That's quite cute, but don't start ripping pages out now......
And this one's made home made cards for every single child in the class. That IS actually quite impressive. I quite approve of that...although it must have been SO much work.
Oh, you want to take the candy off the cards? OK. Don't eat it all at once. That's right. Yes, I agree the cards are quite boring. But you might want to actually see who the candy is from. Let's put it in the bin later..
The Doctor (coming home from work and seeing pink mess of candy and cards spread out on the table): Uuughh. What is all this appalling stuff? And why are the boys running around like sugared-up maniacs?
NVG (proffering bin): I told you so.
Valentine's Day. What happened to the romance?
