As I managed to dodge all the soppy valentine couples dining in my restaurant tonight by making myself a chef and hiding in the kitchen, till most of them went away.

A busy day it was, and work hard we all did. Lots of happy guests as we filled up with couples all night. Lots of cravable munchies and cocktails later, and my evening is almost over.

Although I happily missed it all, I feel sure the restaurant banter among guests could have been the makings of a half-decent chick flick.

With only 30 minutes of valentines day to go, I consider myself lucky…
