Bring On The Cake!

If you are looking for Sparkles Christmas blog hop, you will find it here!

I just wanted to say Happy Valentines day to my gorgeous hubby! 16 years ago tonight, he took me out for a meal at a little pub in Blythe Bridge in Stoke, which has been knocked down now, but I don't really remember much about the meal oops! But afterwards we went for a drive & parked up on a hill over looking the city & that's when he got out a ring & proposed to me....mmmmm not the most romantic way to ask "Do ya wanna be me wife?" lol I nearly slapped him, thankfully I didn't, but I did say yes!! I can't believe that happened 16 years ago wow! We wont be having a special meal or anything tonight, but on Friday I think both of the girls are stopping at my moms, so peace & quiet & time for some romance! I hope you all have a fab day xx

Wow! Where has that fortnight gone? I can't believe how quick this year has started, half way through February all ready?!?!?! Not right lol!!
