A pinch and a punch for the first of the month. Can you believe that we’re already more than a twelfth of the way to next Christmas. Only 328 shopping days left! Before we know it, Valentine’s Day will be upon us, and I’ve been trying to find one of those big marzipan chocolate hearts wrapped in red foil, like the ones that Woolies used to sell until a couple of years ago. I can’t get one over here either, which is really sad, as hubby adores them. It was something I always gave him with his Valentine card.
I was really excited yesterday, as we went to collect my early Valentine’s pressie. We visited our favourite furniture store at the weekend, and I saw the ideal cupboard in which to house my music books, so with it being red, it was decided that it was ideal for Valentine’s. We went to collect it from the warehouse, and it just fitted in the back of the Jeep. We had just the right place for it, very close to the piano. I love it.
Today we’re off to our local beach. I’m sure that it will be much easier to find parking than the last time we tried a couple of weekends ago. I don’t have a bucket and spade, but we’ll probably just go for a long walk along the seashore, and then find a nice place to have lunch. Judging by this pic I got off the Internet, it looks gorgeous, and the sea is really calm; very different from the big waves in Umhlanga Rocks. There’ll definitely be no surfing going on here.
Hope you all have a great day too. Chat again soon.
i love your blog, i have it in my rss reader and always like new things coming up from it.
Thanks, td. I’ve just found your lovely comment in my spam box. I don’t know how it ended up there. Sorry I haven’t replied before. xx
That is such a lovely piece of furniture, AD. I love the artwork above it too – it is just what I would choose… really nice and peaceful; I love the style!
Thanks, Tandy. We did enjoy our beach walk. 😉

You get a Valentine present?
I am seriously jealous!
Thanks, twolips. the cupboard just waved to me, and I waved back with hubby’s cheque book. 😉 Sad about your lack of Valentine goodies. ;( Hugs xx
Loooove the cupboard (and the picture above it).
I can’t remember when last I had a Valentine’s card or prezzie.
That type of beach is just perfect for relaxing.
Love your header ad!
Thanks, Hopestar. It’s a couple of holiday photos. 😉 Hugs xx
Bloody Valentine’s day – not a day I keep record of…
But, since you are actually happy with your man, I’m glad you two get to spoil one another.
It is, after all, what it’s about 😉
Enjoy the beach AD!
Thanks, 68. I guess we’re very lucky to be so happy together. 😉
