My sweetheart has been away for the best part of a week and will be coming back on Tuesday. Much as I'm looking forward to her return, I also look forward to Tuesday with some trepidation. There's a mountain of washing up and washing to do. I expect she'll give me grief if she discovers I haven't hoovered or watered her plants in her absence. What's the best plan? Waste a day catching up on the chores or buy her flowers and chocolates to welcome her back?
