Such a busy weekend!

Saturday morning we did some DIY :)
We had bought curtain tie back thingy’s for all the rooms and we needed to put them up.

We had also bought 2 chandeliers to put in the lounge/dining room area, coz the lights were crappy!!

And with such high ceilings, we really needed something dangly. Peter_vs went off to Fourways to buy me a present :) and I assembled one of the chandeliers. It was tricky! I did as much as i could without getting into the electrical stuff.

The in-laws came through for “lunch” at 4pm (but arrived an hour late at 5pm!!!) I was soooooooooo hungry! We had a braai and they brought us presents! yay presents!!
They had brought bathroom mats and a full set of towels for BOTH bathrooms! Peter wants a black and red bathroom…

I want a pink and silver bathroom. Shame, MIL was told pink and silver and she got confused by the “silver” part! What i want is a pink bathroom, with silver accessories (candles, dustbin, soap bottle thingy etc) … so she bought me a bunch of light grey stuff too! Haha! Not what I would’ve chosen, but it’s not too bad :D The mats are nice and squishy!!

AND then…. they gave us a big HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY box. NO idea what it was. Opened it up… it’s a *BEAUTIFUL* 56 piece cutlery set by Robert Welch! Absolutely STUNNING! They feel so luxurious and extravagant! Definately not something I would EVER buy myself because of the price – I’d rather buy lots of cheaper stuff than one exopensive quality item. Wow – they are beautiful!
We scored BIG TIME!! :D

Beautiful Glossy Box - and so heavy!!

Sunday was Peter and my… um, I hate using this word – our anniversary. It sounds lame to me. Only married people and dead people have anniversaries. Anyway… He believes in the word and in celebrating it – more presents – I can’t say no!
He had told me during the week that he bought me something I’ve always wanted. I was very excited and a bit nervous that the present wouldn’t live up to my expectations, even though i had NO clue what it was. Even when I saw the wrapped present I was clueless.
It was a book by JK Rowling called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’s a book referred to in the Harry Potter Series! It was imported all the way from England Nogal! :) Very cool. Also, a bottle of perfume :) yay me!!

My Love Present!

The we went off to breakfast and to The Cupcake Boutique in Lonehill (I have been DYING to go there!) There stuff is so gorgeous! Taste-wise… they look better than they taste. They are yummy, yes, but not to die for, if you know what I mean.

Oh, I forgot to mention, the whole weekend I had a cold :( Feeling very sorry for myself. So we got home, and Peter put me in my PJ’s, gave me medicine and tucked me up with my shoo-shoo-blanky and a teddy and I had a 2 hour nap :) I love being looked after! <3

It was really exhausting – even if it doesn’t sound like much.

I sure cleaned up in the present department!! :)
