This year Valentines Day was obviously going to be different since the arrival of our little koala. Amazingly though, my hubby was the most romantic he had ever been!
He has never been much of a romantic. After all, he proposed on the side of a road out the front of an Energy Australia power station.
Valentines Day. It started with hubby cooking me a lovely breakfast! I love a good Saturday breakfast! It was something I used to do before Elena arrived. I'd come up with different ideas for breakfast, from french toast with ricotta and poached pears, to eggs Benedict a la Lu. I would spend a good hour or two on Saturday mornings busying myself mixing batter, poaching eggs or spreading home made pesto on crusty bread. It was a little pleasure for me.
To have my first Saturday breakfast in four months was just perfect!
Unfortunately the rest of the day didn't go quite as planned. Elena threw up her feeds not once, but twice, putting my husbands lunchtime plans into disarray and leaving me a bit apprehensive to take the baby out.
Babies never really like to follow plans.
Finally hubby surprised me with some beautiful roses he had hidden in the car waiting for our lunchtime excursion that never happened. One rose from him, one rose from Elena and one rose from Kitkat. I felt special.
But it didn't end there! We were lucky enough to get Elena to bed by 8pm. This never happens! Hubby had bought all the makings for homemade pizza. The first dish we had ever made together. Four years ago.
Did the night end there? No he has one last surprise.... I walked outside onto the back deck and saw this!
There can be romance after kids!
Must say, the man impressed! xxx
