Thursday Treats: Cocktails! Skydiving! Oh My!

March 26, 2015

thursday treats 26 Mar 15

I am very much looking forward to this weekend because Ronnie and Sophie are coming to stay. On Saturday we’re having a ‘crafternoon’, which we totally take the piss out of ourselves for saying, but it’s going to be suuuuper fun!

We’re going to be working on some DIY projects that I’ll be featuring on the blog soon. As you probably already know, I am DIY-phobic (AKA I suck at it) so I’ve had to call in the reinforcements. It’s all good though because one of them involves cocktails!! I’ve been ferociously scouring Amazon for ingredients all week and getting very excited over things like edible glitter and rose flavoured syrup!

Oh! And last weekend was quite monumental too because Gareth did a skydive! He is notoriously difficult to buy gifts for because he really doesn’t care about material things and never wants anything (except, like, motherboards and graphics cards and boring techy computer equipment which I really can’t buy for him!) So, for Christmas I decided to get him an experience instead of just pointless bits of junk that will sit around our house, and for some crazy reason I thought of a skydive.

He said he wasn’t nervous beforehand (yeah right!) but once he’d done it he was high as a kite on adrenaline and said it was the most amazing thing he’d ever done! If you’re looking for a unique gift for something that’s tricky to buy for (and a bit of an adrenalin junkie!) then I can totally recommend.
