He always gets me good cards. It's in his blood - everyone in his family gets good cards. Apparently he went to 3 newsagencies before he found a card he was happy with. It's so cute and very fitting for us because we share a love for coffee. It sort of made up for the fact that he worked til 8pm on Thursday :S Which was fine because we had already made plans for Valentines Dinner on Friday but it still sucks to be home alone til 9pm on Valentines Day :(
I spent something like 4 hours making him this card. Only because I saw a picture of what I wanted to create but no instructions so trying to plan and execute it with no instructions is harder than you would think when you're cutting card with a blade. Also because I'm a perfectionist which makes me slow. Also because I was watching Real Housewives of Atlanta when I was doing it.
My Dad abandoned my Mum on Valentines Day. Ok that sounds awful. He had to travel interstate for a funeral. But nonetheless my Mum had no Valentine on Valentines Day and my Valentine was at work so I had a romantic date with my Mum and youngest sister. We went to New Shanghai in Chatswood for some fantabulous dumprings. Oh I love dumprings, especially the ones with the soupy bit inside. Lovelovelove.
So we had our Valentines Dinner last night. Tom requested I sexy it up because I've become lazy/complacent/'dressing as casually as I can get away with' recently. I brought out this dress that I haven't worn in 5 years and ACTUALLY PUT LIP GLOSS ON. Woo for me.
We went to The Deck at Milsons Point and the view was breathtaking. It makes you realise how privileged you are when you are sitting at dinner and you have a direct view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
