The best laid plans….

Well, you know how on the last post I mentioned a few ideas I’d had for dates through the year with my boyfriend, and top of the list was a night out at a Comedy Club. I thought this was a pretty cool idea and really unique, until last night. You know that moment when your heart sinks, or at least thinks, CRAP thank God I never booked it, well last night was one of those moments. There we were sat watching Live at the Apollo, laughing away, me thinking smugly that this would be a great date night when the boyfriend says ‘I’ve never fancied seeing anything like this live, it’d just be boring’. Yup. There it was. So my amazing and unique idea just got flushed down the drain like one of those spiders that doesn’t pay rent therefore has no right to be in your house let alone the bottom of your bath. Boooo.

 

So, whilst pondering over what food I want to start making when I feel better again and not like I’m swallowing a dozen tiny hedgehogs, on Pinterest of course, I came across a crockpot bbq beer chicken sandwich. This may just have to replace the date night OUT and become a date night IN. If nothing else it’ll be an experience for him having my cook because, well, I really can’t cook. Though last summer I made a nice stew (yes in summer, yes we nearly passed out from such a hot meal and yes I wish I’d made a salad but this is what happens when I have brainwaves and decide to cook.)

 

Here’s the link, now how amazing does that look and sound? I think I’ll make it April time when I get the kitchen to myself at home because mum’s away, it can be a surprise for him haha. Now I’m off to feed my addiction, AGAIN, for the rest of the night on Pinterest and plan dessert!

 

One date night out of 12 is a start right??

 

Ciao for now xoxo

Valentines Day

Now, even though I have a boyfriend, I do sometimes get the feeling Valentines Day is kind of a holiday created by Hallmark. And I do kinda think that why is this one day the only day you should be telling your other half how much you love them? THAT BEING SAID…who am I to pass up on any potential presents? And there is bound to be some food involved somewhere, I do love food (when I can swallow it that is!)

So, as a huge The Hills fan (pre LC departure, obvs) I follow LC on Twitter and her blog is pretty awesome, especially when it comes to gift ideas, even if you don’t go with exactly what she says because of country restrictions for example, its still inspiring.

One of her latest Valentine blogs contained a really unique idea that she had read about herself, via a blog…… http://www.laurenconrad.com/post/tuesday-ten-valentines-day-gift-ideas and number 5 really caught my attention. SO, I’m currently trying to figure out whether this is a good idea for me, the whole 12 set dates thing, or rather my boyfriend, I think it’s quite unique. I may buy him some special cheesecake too and slap a ribbon around it, to show effort haha really though, he does love his cheesecake, it’s like a whole new revelation for him!

I’m pondering over ideas at the moment and have made a shortlist….

  • Comedy Store night out
  • Bowling Alley night
  • Summertime picnic (I really don’t do the cold weather)
  • Indoor picnic? (I do do central heating though!!)
  • Try a completely random new restaurant
  • Spend a night in York
  • Visit a vineyard
  • Sit and create a mini memory album
  • Ransom night (where I basically kidnap him and take him wherever I want to go that night, I like this one!)
  • Cookery workshop

And then there’s a few local days out. The thing is, we always say lets go out more but, we either hit the same old restaurants which I do love but, you do get a bit bored of the same old thing, or we end up sitting in watching tele because we’re both a bit skint!

So, on with the pondering……
