This year was my first Valentine's Day.
It was the first time I've had a boyfriend for Valentines, and it was perfect.
Forgive me for being cringey, forgive me for being happy. My housemates tend to think I'm throwing it in their faces when I talk about my boyfriend and my other friends are probably sick of me talking about him. So I'm going to take the opportunity to tell you about Valentine's day, and how happy I really am.
We're not an overly romantic couple I guess, we're best friends and he's the person I tell everything to everyday. So really, it was just another day. But it was a day where we went out to our usual bar and had the most amazing burgers (we both share an epic love for food) and played pool, we had the whole bar to ourselves because nobody was quite as romantic as us and it was lovely.
We got back and I looked in my room; he'd obviously roped in one of my housemates and what greeted me still causes the smile on my face.
The most beautiful flowers I'd ever seen with a card leaning on it.
In the card he'd included train tickets and an e-ticket....to Cadburys World. He knows me too well.
That's right ladies, I went to where chocolate began.
We went, we ate all chocolate in sight, and we conquered.
It was the best day ever, we got so much free chocolate. It was educational AND delicious.
We got to see how the chocolate is made, how it's packaged, how it's moulded.
We saw how the coco bean industry has grown and how they transport their ingredients (actually felt it, the chairs shook and everything!)
Wrote our names in chocolate .
Go on a little car ride through where the little coco beans live
The gift shop was awesome too. SO MUCH CHOCOLATE.
I've definitely stocked up for the next 3 months or so.
We got up at 6am and left at 7:20am, got back at 7:30pm and I was sound asleep by 9:30.
Best day ever.
How was your valentine's?
Love, Elizabeth xx
