I do like my competitions but I don’t enter as many anymore, children drain your life force and just keeping on top of the housework and blog admin jobs is enough to be getting on with. Although I do make the odd exception if something catches my eye than I like entering and daydreaming about enjoying the prize if I happened to win! Half the fun is the daydreaming because its very rare I do actually win. But then its down to odds, the less you enter the less lovely winning emails you will receive I guess.
I really LOVE the sound of this competition over on the Flowers For Everyone site its almost Valentines so this month should hopefully be a romantic one for many. I quite like the sound of two nights in a rose filled love cabin!!! If that did not entice some quality time together with your partner than I don’t know what would.
I think these days it’s so easy to be tapping away on our phones reading what everyone else is doing and not looking at what precious things we have right in front of us. Hands up if you are continually refreshing facebook to see if there is anything juicy going on even when you have decided to curl up together to watch a film, so you then miss half the plot, keep rewinding, finally decide your too tired and then switch it off completely! I would be guilty of all of that and do try and ease away from my phone but I swear I get social media withdrawal symptoms…
I wish this exclusive couples retreat was not so far away, because that is one place I am willing to go without my phone, it’s more primeval somehow going to a cave! You also get lots of flowers, candles, champagne and chocolates to enjoy and the most glorious of views. When we first got together hubbie gave me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers and when he gets them for me nowadays I still feel all warm and happy inside, although usually its because he is in my bad books rather than because it’s a big romantic gesture! I like the wooing that goes on when you first enter a relationship, it’s such a magical time and if it takes heading to a cave in Sydney to recapture that I might just be game, just watching the video is tempting me more and more. The flickering flames of the log burner, the relaxing spa bath and the heady fragrance of a room full of roses. I have added the video below to inspire you all to be more romantic!
Seeing as the flights might be out of my price range at the moment I might scatter rose petals everywhere, light a few candles, crack open a bottle of Asti and chuck my phone in a drawer, probably a locked one I don’t have the key for just to be sure! Valentines I am ready for you.
