I feel it in my fingers , I feel it in my toes…..its the month of Love and all i see are hearts, red, pinks, teddy bears….
Every year this day love dawns upon us with the onslaught of the same romantic songs and movies. For all us singletons its a day we tend to dismiss in our calendars.I personally have never had a bf for love day and only seem to meet them later on in the year.
In London a group of my friends decided to celebrate this Love day in style and in keeping with the spirit of this day. We came up with the idea of a Secret Valentine where we each would pick a name from the hat and buy that person a Valentines gift.Our group was made up of guys and girls which was a great mix of all sorts.
Us singletons met for pre dinner cocktails and gift exchanging which was a barrel of laughs . Some of the gifts were very creative, naughty , cheesy and nice.We all were dressed up in our red and black finery that evening and went to our pre booked romantic Valentines dinner with friends . The evening was a great way to spend this day that is much dreaded by many with friends who make you laugh and care for you.
Yes I am a singleton very much like Bridget Jones and yes I am still a soppy romantic waiting for Mr Darcy….. who knows what this Love Day will bring
Its always great to have a Girls Day out , day of shopping , lunch , gossip and cocktails.These days out are important food for the soul . Once a ,month generally after payday M and I have a ritual of becoming mallrats for the day.
We tend to vary our times from lunch to breakfast though breakfast cocktails are not always served 🙂 So today we decided on an activity which was a game of Bingo. We all commonly associate Bingo with old people cause watching movies have lead us to believe this myth.But all this has now changed and I actually love Bingo.
We entered into the Bingo Hall which was already full with people waiting for the next game to start. The hall had dimmed lights with music playing softly in the background . This created the feeling of a Casino in Las Vegas. It was fun playing the game and reasonable too. The menu had a great choice and reasonable prices. Its one of them places you can easily get carried away spending money on each game and forget the time. At 2pm we called it quits and headed to the shops.
As always the bookshop beckons me and I simply cannot refuse a book at a bargain price. I love this mall as it has all the shops I need and I know many of staff in different shops. This makes me feel special as a customer.I didnt blow my budget today and only bought 3 books.
M loves going shopping with me as I always tend to find the bargains and good deals.Today however we were controlled in our spending as we are both saving for some awesome adventures to come this year and next.
After we walked from end to end of the mall both floors we decided on a coffee before heading home.I totally loved today. It was great to chilll, chat , shop and have some cocktails.
Its the small things in life that mean alot. We often get so caught up in this race of life that we forget to stop have a laugh and spend the day with someone who makes us laugh.After all the craziness at work the last few weeks it was great to have a day out with M.
