Woo me, Merci

Apparently there's this day on its way that is supposed to induce us all into a 24-hour coma of reignited love, raunchy romance, and inappropriate public displays of heavy petting. Yeah right. I'm not all that into Valentine's day as a concept but can't pretend I don't love an excuse to receive gifts of any description. What woman doesn't?!

I love a list. I have many. But always have room for more. So today I'm linking up with Kate Takes 5 and sharing 5 things I'd like for Valentine's Day.

1. A job. 
Boring I know. And I'm quite sure as soon as I get one, I'll want my Tai Tai time back again but for right now, I'd like a paycheck. A big fat one. And a great office, overlooking the harbour. And fabulous colleagues. And work lunches.

2. Some amazing pins. 
Preferably the type that fit into denim shorts. Not interested in the sewing type. Or working all that hard to get them. Cue the wolf whistle.


3. A beautiful spring frock.
This could be right off the Stella McCartney or DVF runway. But thanks to some divine fashion god, this beauty is from no-one less than our favourite cheapskate high-street store in the UK, Primark my friends, Primark. Shame I no longer live in London. Perhaps one of you UK lovelies could kindly purchase and send it over to me? I'm a size 10. Thanks. Oh and I'll take the hat too.


4. A Labrador puppy.
I grew up with golden Labs, just like this one. So damn cute. I think this little angel would do a great job at keeping me company here in Hong Kong. Surely every Tai Tai needs a dog?


5. A long lunch with my husband.
We don't often get a whole day together, on our own, with no plans, no commitments, no place to be. And nothing makes me happier than being able to hover over a crisp Sauvignon Blanc in the afternoon (does that make me an alcoholic?), with good food, good chat, and my one and only. We'd move from lunch to Le Boudoir, my favourite French cocktail bar here in Hong Kong and while the night away without a care in the world. Happy days. Oh and some form of diamond always helps.




What do you think? Am I asking for too much?
What are you hoping for this Valentine's Day?

Oh i like this idea!! My husband is away of course, i think we've had 2 out of 17 Valentines together, so maybe i'll get a Skype 'i love you' & air kiss?? He's out bush in Brisbane, considering he's been there a month, Skype is 'cleaner'. Sigh. My 7y.o. son has already had a Valentine from the US in the mail, too cute!! Enjoy yours, love Posie
