as a gift (😏) I gave up social media for the duration that my man was home.. that and I plan to get him Rolling Stones' Voodoo Lounge on vinyl .. he has just gone to work, so naturally I'm going to List my day! // moderated content, rated PG13
- •Got up early, finish tidying the house, check SM, dressed scantily.
- •Put out two date cards; stay in OR go out.He is a fire fighter and was on shift last night (and tonight) .. I never know if he'll come home and need to sleep (and we're in wildfire season)
- •He chose "go out"Either way, they both had the same agenda: coffee, brunch, zoolander, treat. One was all those things within the confines of our place and the other was not!
- •I started to prepare brunch: home-baked mushroom and pancetta muffins and whilst baking I went out to buy coffees.
- •Whilst he drank his coffee, I finished preparing brunch
- •Next up; off to the beach for brunch and stand up paddle with our puppy.I am pissed I gifted him that I would leave my phone at home. It was so picturesque. Pure white powder sand, crystal blue water, a slight easterly breeze ensuring the waters were calm. We have trained our dog to jump on our boards, so she came out with us too.
- •Back at home and he needed to kip. He had a massive night on a local scrub fire and was having a hard time deciding that he needed to stay in.
- •Changing the agenda to "stay in"
- •He fell asleep within minutes of making the call to stay in. I fetched the necessary requirements.. and created this!
- •...this is also about the time I broke my own "no social media rule" (zero willpower!)
- •I built a movie watching fort!because I am a massive child-woman with an endless imagination and propensity for romanticism.
- •Promptly woke him up ... (I) popped a champagne + he drank ginger beer, watched Zoolander ... did naughty things ... tried watching Dodgeball, switched to The Office 😏
- •Prepared him cold-rock style icecream with strawberry cheesecake Ben + Jerry's, nerds candy and freddo frogs.
- •Watched The Office, cringed at how closely it resembled our old work place where we fell in love (esp S2E11 booze cruise) and then he up and left for work.
- •...what's next?! More 'Office, finish my bottle of champagne, order a pizza (thanks for the inspo @jpbateson!) and the watch Valentine's Day and then somewhere in there post my List App Valentine's list for my secret Valentine ❤️
