AND lets not forget...
Valentine's Day is COMING (this Thursday all over the world)
In honour, of these traditions on Saturday Hubby took me to our local Roti Shop for a Dahl-puri roti and some Pholourie. They are an both Indo-Trinidadian dishes. On Sunday we had dinner at our local Chinese restaurant to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Earlier in the day Angelo and I listened to music and made our snake puppet to commemorate The Year of the Snake, on the Chinese Calendar. Sadly Angelo was sick all of Monday with fever we did nothing and tonight he's not 100% so no pancakes were to be had in our house. The last time I had a pancakes was at Center Parcs, Elveden Forest last summer for my babymoon. I had the Fruits of the Forest sweet pancake at Pancake House... MMMmmm YUMMY!. While I didn't have a chance to watch any Carnival footage from Trinidad, as I've been busy with the kids, we did speak to my mum on Skype. She filled me in on the Carnival goings-on.
How do you feel about the month of February love it or loathe it? I'd like to hear your thoughts and experiences. As for me its a lovely month to celebrate the various cultural events that are significant to my family.
