Ah, Valentine’s Day. Not something I’m personally in to, but DeeW was quite excited. She made a card for me, then asked me to write “Dear Mummy, Happy Valentine’s Day, love from DeeW”. I finished writing, she folded it up and proudly exclaimed “look! I made you a card!”
I had planned on baking something in a heart shaped tin, or making something in my heart shaped moulds but in the end Husband and I thought we would have a special food day. In other words, Mum Hasn’t Been Organised Enough To Prepare Stuff. First stop in the morning was Mister Nice Guy’s Bake Shop. I tried the mini raw strawberry shortcake and it was fantastically good. This is the first time I’ve tried one of the raw offerings from the bake shop and it did not disappoint:
More goodies on display:
For dinner, we headed off to Eat Fresh Pizza at 44 Raleigh Road in Maribyrnong. I got myself a vegan gourmet veggie pizza, with capsicum, roast pumpkin and eggplant. Major yum here too:
My Valentine’s present to myself, Husband and the kids magically appeared earlier in the week. I had some things to drop off at an op shop and to my delight there was a big “50% off everything” sign on the window. I scored this 1970s Mastermind set, just like the one I had growing up. Not only that, but this I am sure is unused as the scoring pegs were still in a sealed bag and the coloured pegs were in a bag (non-sealed). For $2.50!!!
I love my readers! MWAAAA!
