Good Morning lovers! Cor does it have to be Monday already?! I really did not want this weekend to end. It’s not often that Brad and I fully make the most of an entire weekend but this weekend we actually spent some proper quality time together. Usually Brad works on a Saturday morning and plays football in the afternoon, so I am usually left to my own devices and we just get a Sunday together. However this weekend both his work and football was cancelled due to the weather, so we went for breakfast and a nice walk with the dogs in the morning. We spent some time clearing up the house together (oh so romantic!!) before I spent the afternoon pampering myself ready for our valentines night out.
I mentioned before, I am not usually one for getting sucked in to the marketing hype of Valentines day, but this year it was a welcome reminder to get out the house and make the most of each other. Being self employed, we are both guilty of being consumed by our own work and not making enough time for each other. We enjoyed a lovely meal (courtesy of M&S Valentines dine for £20) and some bubbly before we got dolled up, to head in to town for a few drinks and to watch the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but I have mixed feelings on it, I really thought they rushed to get to the sexy time and it was all over too quickly. We still had a good night though and enjoyed a couple of drinks after the film too.
I have lots on the to do list this week on account of the meeting I had with Fundsurfer on Friday. I will be launching a crowdfunding project soon to generate some growth funding for my photo booth, I am really excited about lots of new opportunities opening up for the business so I have lots to work on for that this week. What have you got planned for the week ahead? Are you feeling good about it? Why not Tweet: @mermaidgossip and let me know I would love to know what you’re getting up to and whether you had a good valentines weekend?
