As I have mentioned in my previous post, we didn’t plan anything extraordinary for this Valentine’s Day. I even ordered Edward not to buy me any flowers – I feel it’s such a rip-off- prices are doubled or tripled on everything to do with the celebration. And, honestly, I don’t think, that my man MUST buy me flowers, just because it is Valentine’s Day! I will appreciate them much more on any other day when he gets them because he feels like it and not because everyone does it.
And now I feel good, cos I don’t fall into that ‘because everyone does’ category (at least not on this occasion)! Happy with myself. 🙂
St Valentine’s Day itself, I, however, have nothing against about. I actually love it. I think the idea is really nice. It is important to celebrate love. So we did kind of celebrate, but in a very much our own – non-commercial way.
On Valentine’s day morning, Edward was the first one to wake up and we were all soon greeted by Valentine’s day kisses from him! I know, he is still so romantic and lovely! 🙂 We then went to make breakfast together. We had decided to have paninis (some people have it for lunch, but we do like filling breakfast). When our paninis were done, we attempted to make some romantic hearts on it by using mayonnaise and ketchup. Believe me, it’s harder than it looks! It didn’t come out perfect, but the thought was there and that’s what counts! (All worst hearts are Edward’s by the way haha :D)
We called our kids downstairs and all had lovely breakfast. We then tidied up the house and Edward went to clean a car while children and I were getting ready to go out. And NOP, we didn’t go to the posh restaurant, not even the cinema. We took our babies to the soft play! Yeh, soft play. And, honestly, I don’t think they would have been any happier if we took them to the restaurant! They were literally thrilled to go to soft play for some fun!
After fun at the soft play, we went back home for our special Valentine’s Day dinner. We had marinated some meat the night before and were excited to do BBQ on Valentine’s day. Our late lunch/ dinner was delicious! We all really enjoyed. In fact, better than the restaurant, as it was surely made with love!
We had a little break after dinner, and then we poured bath for Daniella and Harry. We had bought a new bathing seat (£11 only) from Amazon for our little one, it arrived on Valentine’s day and we couldn’t wait to test it!
Such a good buy!
Harry was splashing with Daniella in the bath for good half and hour, sitting comfortably and safely in his new seat. They both really enjoyed. The bath has tired our babies out completely! Harry fell asleep within seconds after his last feeding and Daniella went to watch a cartoon in mummy and daddy’s bed and fell asleep while watching…
I swear I could not imagine a better Valentine’s Day! Everyone had fun, everyone enjoyed, everyone is happy!
What did you do on Valentine’s Day! xxx
