… there was an orchid waiting for me on the dining room table when I returned home from the morning run around.
We don’t really “do” valentine’s day. 0ur anniversary is next week and that is so much more special to us, but it always lovely to received a beautiful flower. My gorgeous man gave me a candy striped orchid when we lived in Darwin but we were forced to leave it at the border when we drove into Western Australia all those years ago. The WA border check is pretty full on – I’ve passed over international borders with less checks! This orchid above is a dendrobium orchid – which doesn’t really mean much to me other than it is really pretty.
That is where the romance ends. The rest of my day will no doubt be dedicated to assembling some Ikea furniture.
The children’s bedroom is all freshly painted. The bunk bed has been assembled and slept in for the very first time last night and now it is time to assemble some new drawers. I have been assured by E. that he will be turning over a new leaf and actually storing his clothes in the draws as opposed to the floor – but I think we’ll just have to wait and see how that goes.
And of course… being a Monday it is washing day. Three loads down and on the line, one more to go and two baskets already waiting to be folded.
I hope your day is filled with a little more excitement! What are you doing for this day of lurve?
