This morning wasn’t the best in the Mansfield household. I got an earful from my other half for turning the tap on and making the water go cold halfway through her shower.
Then I had a few choice words of my own, when I discovered that all the milk had been used up by the time I got round to making my cereal. I don’t like dry cornflakes, you see!
The thing is, I shouldn’t have been surprised, because today is apparently, the most unromantic day of the year, according to new research.
Yup, we’re less likely to buy Champagne, book a table for two or whisper ‘I love you’ to our special someone today than any other day of the year.
So, really I ought to put some of goodtoknow’s romance tips into action tonight – maybe buy a bunch of flowers or some other gift to apologise for being so grumpy.
Mind you, given this research it hardly seems worth it, does it?
