Are you engaged and living in sin? Because we don’t live 100 years ago, the likelihood is yes, you are ‘living in sin’. In that case, you will already have plates, a microwave, a mixer, an espresso machine that you think looked cool but can’t use because espresso makes your head explode. You’ll already have cutlery, it may be from Ikea, but it’s cutlery. It cuts and Ikea rules. Thus, when you get married and the issue of the wedding present registry comes up – Eep! You already have everything! You still want presents but dear lord you can’t just let the guests go off and choose something without any direction. You WILL end up with some Mr & Mrs tat. Fact. SO!

Happy Papa’s Day!

   fathersday                                                     A belated Happy Father’s Day to all Dad’s out there!

What did you guys get up to with your Dad?

I took mine out for an afternoon tea at the Waterloo Gardens Teahouse, in Cardiff. For a mere £9.50 a head, we had a lovely lunch of delicious sandwiches, odd cakes (Courgette and Lime, anyone?!), and the largest selection of  teas I’ve ever seen (hello rosebud tea!). My Dad and me chose the chinese breakfast tea, which had a hint of chocolate. YUM! We had fun pretending to be tea experts. waterlooteaHere’s a linky: http://www.waterlootea.com/ . It comes with the Three seal of approval.

We then took a nice walk to the Bay to walk off some of the cake belly.

It didn’t cost the earth, but my Dad said he had a nice day – and that’s all that counts.
