Anniversary Flowers

Anniversary Flowers

Matthew and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary yesterday. The traditional fourth wedding anniversary gift is flowers or plants but as we are on a bit of an economy drive at the moment we agreed no presents (though Matthew did, naughty boy, buy me some freesia’s which are one of my favourite flowers). I decided to … Continue reading

What Shall I Wear?

Matthew and I have been invited to a wedding later this month – nothing too out of the ordinary in that statement.  But this wedding requires a fancy dress outfit for the evening reception!  There is a fairly broad theme, anything beginning with C or S – the Bride and Groom’s initials.  However I found … Continue reading

5:2 Fast

5:2 Fast

Just over three weeks ago Matthew declared that we were going to undertake the 5:2 fasting diet starting the following day – Monday.  He’d obviously been thinking about it for a while but it was news to me.  He told me that all we had to do was eat 500 calories on two days of … Continue reading

When Matthew and I started to seeing each other he complained that one of the first things I introduced into his house was tissues, up until then boxes of tissues were confined to the bedroom and bathroom.  The next thing was cushions, I had a lot of cushions and once we were married these suddenly … Continue reading

Birthday Cakes.

Birthday Cakes.

On Saturday I celebrated my birthday (21 and a few months – if you’re asking).  I had a lovely day, my husband spoilt me suitably, lunch out, cinema (Life of Pi) finishing off with a Chinese takeaway in the evening. My birthday was also marked by having not one, but two cakes.  Matthew decided he … Continue reading

Santa’s Grotto

Santa’s Grotto

Following on from the emergency Father Christmas Outfitters post, I thought you might like to see some pictures of my lovely husband in his place of work.   The Winter Ice Palace – to give it its official name, is located in the centre of St Austell. Basically it is a marquee which has been … Continue reading

Emergency Father Christmas Outfitters

Having posted that I was working on Christmas Presents for family and friends, I was then thrown into the middle of a Father Christmas outfit emergency. My husband has landed himself a seasonal part-time job as Father Christmas in the shopping centre at nearby St Austell.  He is doing this in conjunction with someone else … Continue reading
