I usually leave the bin bags to my beau, they have to go to the basement into a big binstore and I don't particularly like being in the basement, plus he's a lot more vigilant about the recycling and sorting than I am. But one day recently I decided to join him, and boy was I glad that I did! This is what I found...

Day of Love

I don't know why, but yesterday for the first time on Valentine's Day I really took note of the hordes of men carrying bunches of flowers home to their significant others. It made me smile. I am a self-confessed sucker for romance.
When I arrived home after my Zumba class, red as a beetroot, my sweetheart was in the kitchen cooking up a storm. When I sat down to dinner, which included the exotic ingredient asparagus (yum), the candles were lighting and the music was low…perfect! I also got spoiled with a massive bunch of beautiful flowers and a cute card.


I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day, whether treating yourself or someone else…

Can we go back to writing letters?

I always loved writing letters when I was younger...well, maybe not so much writing as receiving letters...especially when the sender had embellished the envelope with stickers or drawings and written on fancy paper! Ah, fancy paper....the joy of collecting it and swapping with your friends and sista! I still have mine in a little box, along with notebooks, stickers and all sorts of goodies that could make correspondence even more fun! So, when I grow up I want to have a space in my home for a desk for letter writing and drawers for my fancy stationery...

Angl bar St Petersburg

I almost forgot to mention this bar we stumbled upon when leaving Zoom Cafe. It is on the opposite side of the road on the corner with some interesting street art on the outside of the bar and as far as I remember no sign for the bar. It was one of those nights where everyone is tired and you only mean to pop in for one drink but end up doing shots with the owners and singing with the band! SO much fun!

Happy New Year!!

I want to wish you all a really wonderful 2012 and I hope you are all as optimistic about this year as I am...this year I'm going blonde, doing as much dancing as my poor bandy knee will let me, learning more tunes on my tin whistle, and myself and the boy are learning more recipes...yum! and travelling as much as the budget will allow...and of course spending as much time as possible with the ones I love and the outdoors. Cannot wait!
Love to all xxx
