After the longest day at Uni on Wednesday (13th Feb), it was super lovely to go to my boyfriend's and relax for a few days. We decided to order some food as neither of us could be bothered to cook. We ordered "healthy burgers" which were actually quite spicy and very filling; with cheesy potato skins and milkshakes. So stuffed after. We literally couldn't move for ages!
Valentine's morning, I woke up to a kiss and a cuddle and breakfast in bed. Er hello, who wouldn't turn down pancakes in bed?
I have never been big on Valentine's Day but I actually made an effort this year. After breakfast we exchanged gifts. I got Andrew a really lovely t-shirt and some socks with popcorn on. I had to get them! If you didn't know already, we met through work :-) I was then told to close my eyes and not peek (I didn't, promise) and two minutes later was told I can OPEN! In front of me was the nicest bunch of flowers I have ever received; a mixture of red and light pink roses and lillies which happen to be my favourites. I also got swanky underwear and chocolates! Spoilt!
In the afternoon, we took a walk to the local lake and fed the ducks. They crowded round us but I made sure I fed the pigeons too (I am one of them people who feel so sorry for them).
Forty something pence from Sainsburys. You have to try them!
Just as the sun was starting to set, we took a walk home and made sure we strolled down the "rich street". We've estimated the houses are worth a couple of million each. Being nosy, we obviously took a photo of some. Apologies if your house is pictured. Can we be friends?
After a lovely morning and afternoon, we had a lovely four course meal at a Chinese restaurant in outer London. Everything was great! I was even given a rose :-)
starters: vegetable spring rolls, spare ribs, thai fish cakes, chicken skewers & crispy seaweed.
First main: shredded duck, duck hoison sauce & pancake wraps.
Second main: spicy chicken and vegetables, beef in blackbean sauce, special fried rice & sweet'n'sour prawns.
Dessert: fried apple and banana in toffee sauce with vanilla ice-cream.
The next morning, we did face masks to wake ourselves up and just for a bit of fun! Andrew cut cucumber slices for us, although I am not entirely sure what cucumber does for your eyes, but that's what you're meant to do, right?
Haha ^. And that's it! A fab few days with my boy.
XO love, Ashleigh x
