Valentine’s 2014: Surprise
It's our first year in our new house. I saw these initials and decided to treat the house for Valentine's :-)

With Leigh being a teacher and me being a youth worker, we are like passing ships during the week. He’s at work first thing in the morning and back in the afternoon, whilst I start work in the afternoon and finish at night. So, we didn’t see each other properly on Valentine’s day until I got back from work about 9pm. I came home to this lovely sight…
…And a tasty home cooked dinner!

Such a sweetheart. We’ve been together for over 7 years and married for one and a half years. He still has his romantic moments! ;-) Bless him, after working so hard at school all week. I am a lucky girl! Leigh cooked steak, homemade chips, roasted cherry tomatoes with rosemary & garlic, and spicy smoky sweetcorn.

Very tasty! Lots of freshness and flavours going on in a plate. I love it when Leigh makes his homemade chips, as I never seem to get them right when I do them!
The next morning, Leigh also cooked breakfast. Love the weekends for this luxury, as makes a nice change from me cooking all the time! He made (some of his best ever) poached eggs and black pudding atop a toasted homemade milk bread plait. Delicious.

Tonight, we’re cooking for our friends Tor & Chris, which is a lovely way to continue spending Valentine’s weekend. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend too! :-)
