V&A Reading Rooms

These days I don't get much of a chance to get out and about as I once did - my 18 month old has seen to that. But for a very long time (well since it opened), I've been meaning to take a trip to the V&A Reading Rooms. Perhaps I may take a day of soon, and spend the day drinking coffee and reading...somehow it seems like a very remote idea, but I live in hope.

Valentine's is something I always look forward toand secretly I always hope and wonder if I will receive a gift from a secret admirer. But it's never happened, and at this stage in my life, I doubt it ever will.

So you'd think my partner may at least buy a special gift or take me out for a delicious meal, but no, last Valentine's he worked at home upstairs while I cooked him dinner downstairs. I think we ate together, although I'm sure he would have preferred to eat while working.

So, having been disappointed in the past, I've taken the situation in hand and booked us a weekend away to Suffolk. Romantic it probably won't be, Milly will be sleeping in the room with us, but at least we will be away together.

And, as he is a great lover of Whisky, I've decided to give him a lovely Kathleen Hills' Vintage Decanter....
