Happy 2nd anniversary!

It was mine and Neil's 2nd anniversary last week. Time flies! We celebrated on the Friday evening by going to Frankie and Benny's for a scrumptious three course dinner... look out for a separate blog post on that. We also did some shopping in Penarth, McArthur Glen (Bridgend) and Cardiff over the course of the weekend, had a coffee and hot chocolate in Costa, watched a lot of Inbetweeners and ate a calzone in Bella Italia on the Saturday evening. In case you didn't already know, we share a mutual love of food. I don't think I could actually be in a relationship with someone who didn't love food. Sad but true.



I wore my new dress for the occasion! I'm so pale...


We always buy each other little gifts and cards for our anniversaries, but we don't go too over the top. It's more about spending time together (and eating out) than about buying extravagant gifts. I bought a 'man tin' for Neil and filled it with nuts, chocolate and an Elmo air freshener for his car. These gifts might seem slightly random but they were inspired by some of our 'in' jokes! I also made him some chocolate brownies, which you can read about in an earlier blog post

Neil drew the short straw when it came to the timing of our anniversary as he only bought me my birthday gifts a few weeks ago. However, he still managed to buy me the perfect presents and I've used them several times already. 




Disney pyjamas and a massive Yankee candle!


I can confirm that I'm currently burning the Yankee candle in my living room and it smells goooood. Happy anniversary to me!
