Happy valentine’s day – family day – long WEEKEND!!
What a week, I’m so ready for an abundance of lovey-dovey movies on T.V – some quiet time and wine … ahhh the wine!! This long weekend I seriously hope to do nothing … I say that as I type on my work laptop that I brought home #FML …
Good news is, that no matter what I’ll sleep in … until *bzzz bzzz bzzz * —> that would be my blackberry obv. #FML
But the wine .. NO ONE WILL TAKE THE WINE AWAY. I hope.
