I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's, whether you were treating someone, being spoiled by someone or spoiling yourself. I personally like Valentine's even though it's a bit made up and a money scam, but I enjoy any excuse to celebrate and do something special. I had a really nice Valentine's weekend despite being mainly stuck in bed with a cold which isn't actually all that bad when you have chocolate. My boyfriend surprised me with pink roses, chocolate and something nice to drink, I ambitiously decided to bake him The Londoner's famous slutty brownies, despite being notoriously bad in the kitchen. I managed to walk head first into the extractor fan, clearly because I spent no time near it. Cleverly I hedged my bets in case I completely failed and bought him some S'more Pop Tarts as a back up present. Luckily the brownies turned out to be delicious and so easy to make, definitely give them a try if you haven't already. Between the Pop Tarts, Lindt chocolates and brownies we were in sugar heaven. We may have kept the Valentine's spirit going into this week, why stop a good thing?! A dinner out to avoid food shopping and dish washing, brightened up Monday. I had deep fried brie followed by chicken sizzlers and he had chicken wings with fillet steak and pepper sauce. One extra surprise was waiting for me when I came home from work today, my boyfriend treated me to Tanya Burr's new book Love Tanya, so now I'm cuddled up with a hotwater bottle starting my new read. Never let the presents and chocolate end I say, chocolate is for life not just for Valentine's Day.
Did you celebrate Valentines?
