Our February

February 20th, 2015 | by Alexandra | No Comments

February has been a busy month full of festivals and celebrations as well as continuing to decorate our home. We are still halfway through renovating the bathroom, our friend fitted a new bathroom suite for us (which looks amazing) Gavin has finished the tiling of the walls, we also finished painting the one wall and glossing the skirting boards and cupboards. Only a few more bits to do such as putting in the new towel radiator and laying the flooring.

Start of the month we celebrated our first Valentines Day in our own home, instead of going out to a fancy restaurant we thought we’d make the most of owning our own home and decided to stay in and cook. We decided the lazy way and bought an M&S meal deal for £20 which was a  bargain. The meal deal included a starter, a main course, dessert, chocolates and wine.Gavin bought me some lovely flowers and a HUUUGE box of milk tray. In return I gave Gavin a handmade chocolate box bouquet full of Galaxy and Haribo.


We also celebrated pancake day, we bought the ready made pancake mix where you just add milk. It was my first ever go at making pancakes, my first one ended up in a big mess but in the end they turned out well and I was happy with my pancakes. We had several toppings to choose from including golden syrup, strawberry sauce and classic sugar and lemon.

 Gavin missed out on Chinese New Year as I ended up going to watch Psychic Sally: On the Road with my mum at Southampton Guildhall, going out for dinner beforehand to a Chinese Restaurant in Southampton City Centre. We chose to have the self- service buffet which we really enjoyed. When we paid we both received a fortune cookie. My fortune read: To retain friendship is to be tolerant, therefore it is time for you to forgive one of your friends mistakes.

What sort of things did you get up to for Valentines Day, Pancake Day and Chinese New Year?
