Happy Anniversary

Its a year since I got married..how time flies when you are having fun ;)
I told lovely husband that all I wanted was him to book a meal out and sort the sitters out...I'm sure I'm not the only one who tires of doing all the 'thinking' for the family!! So that could be my gift.
Well I take back everything I ever said..tonight a hotel is booked in the city and we are off for a child free break :)
I'm delighted he has done this but I am biting my tongue trying not to say things like but can we afford it...I wanted to sow my sweet pea seeds...I need to do some work online.....I wanted to sew...I needed to iron etc etc!!
(Obviously I'm not good at the being surprised thing..be careful what you wish for lol!!!!)

I was out last night at the cinema to see The Lovely Bones....I'll try not to spoil anything!!!
It was beautiful. The acting was faultless, the photography was stunning, but.....
4 out of the 5 of us who went had read the book and we had niggles!!!
They missed out a few, in my opinion vital bits, and my main problem was the casting of Ray...he was a wonderful actor and delicious eye candy ;) , however he was supposed to be playing a teenager and he looked like a grown man preying on a young girl and I was uneasy with it!
Anyway, let me know what you think!!
I had a lovely surprise package this morning..a while ago I won a giveaway over at Mollycupcakes, I had completely forgotten, so it was a lovely anniversary present! Thank You x
Have a good weekend!

Oh you lucky girl, all the other things can wait. Have a great night.
The lovely bones is a great book, how bad is that I didn't know they had made it into a film....I have got to see it.
Lovely prize you won.
Happy anniversary and have fun,

Happy anniversary, your husband has already decided you CAN afford it, you deserve to do it and you are worthy of being treated so stop it and enjoy being spoilt!

Wow one year already? Huge congratulations. May you continue to be happy and healthy in your marriage.

You'd rather do housework??? Are you mad? Bet as soon as you're out the door you'll be quite into a night off. Think of not having to do anything for anybody for a whole day and night. Now that's an exciting thought. I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time.

Now that prize is rather lovely with the cute cupcake wrappers. WEll done.

Enjoy your anniversary treat! I'm sure the sweet peas and ironing can wait.
I have read The Lovely Bones but not sure I want to see the film as I read a review saying it wasn't sticking to the story.

Shannon said...

Happy Anniversary! I am sure the seeds and sewing will wait for you... :)

VintageVicki said...

Wow how lucky are you, can your Hubby have a word with mine. He does know he has set himself something to live up to forever now doesn't he. Lol. Enjoy he must think you deserve it and the other things will wait unless that's another of his surpises and the ironing has been done too.

Awww happy anniversary! I would be so delighted (and amazed haha) if my husband did that!

I can't imagine The Lovely Bones as a film, I'll probably watch it when it gets on TV ;)

Hey, Happy Anniversary!

You are right about _that_actor_ looking like a grown man preying on a young girl. Not eye candy for me though. My eye candy would be _the_other_guy_, hehehehe...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

i loved the book but i have not watched the movie yet. i'm glad that you said it was good. i hate when i watch a "book turned movie" movie and the movie does not do the book justice at all.
