Okay, I'll get the 'joke' out early - Bought the wife a new bag and belt today. Hoover works a treat.

Right, are any of you capable of even the most minimum level of romantic behaviour?

In 2001, I was working in Singapore and Mrs Wife, who was then just Miss Fiancée, was in Budapest. I wanted to make sure she knew she was always in my mind so I arranged for some flowers to be delivered. Lots of flowers.

She had just arrived at work when she got called down to collect a 'delivery'. It was a large bouquet of flowers, attached to it was a card with one word on it - "Nagyon". She wondered who it could be, but hopped/guessed it was probably me. But why the one word?

At lunch time, a second bunch of flowers, larger than the first of course, arrives. This time the attached card says "Szeretlek". Her suspicion is aroused. Have I sent one bouquet and someone else the other or are they both from me? Well "Nagyon szeretlek" does mean "I love you very much" and she was sure it was me. But she couldn't call as I was 'in a meeting' Wink | ;)

Finally, late afternoon brings the third LOVECON-I truck load of floral adoration. You know the huge bouquets they give to soloists at the opera? Tiny little things by comparison. This one also brings the one word message "Kedvesem" and now she's sure they're all from me; clever bunny that she is.

The message together is "I love you very much my darling" and she is 'well pleased', if not 'over the moon' even. Right, that was Phase I complete.

In the evening, I went over to Raffles Bar and up to the Long Bar. I had the band play a song for me and just before they started I called her and just said "Listen." I held the phone so she could here the band play "Wonderful Night".

By the end of the song she was in tears of lurve and nine days later she arrived in Singapore to visit me. That evening we went to the Long Bar and you'll never guess what song they started to play as soon as we walked in up the stairs...
