Weekend Summary #24 & Valentines!

I haven't done one of my weekend summaries since May 2016! I actually can't believe it's been that long. I used to document our weekends for me to look back on but I decided to slow down on them a bit because most weekends were the same. I've done a few similar posts since but not an actual weekend summary so today I've brought it back! I doubt they will become a regular thing again just because my weekends are pretty boring but whenever I am doing something fun or interesting I'll do one because they are fun for me to look back on. 

Last weekend we had Georges brothers over and it was basically 3 days of food and films! I made my Chocolate Chip Blondies on the Friday, I always like to bake when we have people round and it had been so long since I last made them. We had a really chilled night, I made a spaghetti bolognese while they watched football and then we watched The Visit which is such a weird, creepy film! It's about two children who go to stay with their grandparents for the week, their mother doesn't have a relationship with them anymore so she has no idea what sort of people they are now or even what they look like, but trusts them to look after her kids. I don't want to ruin the story in case you do want to watch it but it turns out they're not who they say they are and some really strange stuff goes on. I'm sure I'll have said in one of these posts before but we always watch at least one horror film when they stay so that was my choice on Friday night. Definitely wasn't one of the best horror films I've ever watched but it was okay.
On Saturday we went to see Sing at the cinema. I'm just a bit obsessed with those sorts of animation films at the moment, Trolls is just the best thing ever and I also love Secret Life Of Pets so I think I was always going to enjoy Sing but they all did too! I had the nicest Tango Ice Blast which I'd not had in so, so long, the pink and yellow ones together make it taste like refreshers and we all had loads of popcorn and sweets. That night we had the best curry and watched the new Blair Witch film, much better than the first one but not brilliant. On Sunday I made more Blondies because we all loved them so much and we watched Moana. It was such a fun weekend and it felt like we did loads even though we basically just watched films! 
I wanted to talk about Valentines in this post too as there is no point doing a whole seperate post about it. I just love seeing what we did each year. George had Monday and Tuesday off which was so nice, he very rarely takes time off and he's busy even when he comes home sometimes so it was lovely to just have two days where we could just spend time together. We started Valentines with croissants cos they're my absolute favourite and we opened our presents. We only got each other a few bits, I don't think we've bought much for each other since our first and second valentines, it's so odd that even though we have more money now, we seemed to spend so much like 5 or 6 years ago, actually don't know how we afforded it. George bought me Trolls on DVD and I am so happy about that! I just love it and I know it's going to be one of those films that I could watch over and over, and will definitely cheer me up if I'm having a bad day. I don't even care if the film is more for kids, I love it. We both got each other a bit of chocolate too (I'm obsessed with chocolate buttons at the moment) and a card but that was about it. That night we went to the cinema, that's where we spend a lot of our time and valentines is no exception. We went to see Fifty Shades Darker which I have been waiting for, for so long. I loved the first one and the second was even better and has much more of a story. I just want to see it again.
I know some people don't bother with valentines or celebrate it but we always have and I think it's really nice to have a day to spoil each other. I loved our day and wish we could do it all over again.

What did you get up to for Valentines?
