Giveaway: A Right Couple of Mugs and a sappy post.

Valentines day is just peeking its pink sparkly face around the corner and so I thought I would treat my lovely readers to a cheeky little giveaway.

Valentines for me has never been a big deal, we are not ones for grand gestures or schmaltz on February 14th. My opinion is pretty much that if you are only allowed to be loving one day a year, the world would be a sad old place to be.

Plus, our anniversary is in March so we save all of our pennies for a day when we are likely to get a table at our favorite restaurant, not surrounded by other loved up couples making grand gestures.

Now onto the sappy bit, so feel free to skip to the end if you like...

Hoss, my delightful other half (also known as Paulie) has been my boyfriend, best friend, chief recipe-tester, feet warmer, cheerleader, cheerer-uperer, and all round good guy for the past 7 years.

His constant support and encouragement has made this blog what it is, I have not always been the most confident person and when it comes to self promotion I am terrible. I am pretty much your typical self deprecating Brit. So, having that person in your corner, telling you they believe in you or that they are proud of your accomplishments is essential. That person for me used to be my Mum, and since she died I have really struggled. Having Paulie and his wonderful family has helped beyond words.

I guess I wanted this post to be a big soppy thank you to him. I couldn't have done it without you Bumder-face! (yea, we do pet names... what of it?!)...

So, back to the giveaway. The lovely people at T G Greens have offered up a set of these lovely Cornishware mugs, personalised with yours and your significant others name. Of course it doesn't have to be for a couple, you could get your children's names, days of the week, work or home... Whatever you want really! Simply complete the rafflecopter widget below to enter.

UK ONLY - Sorry to my international buds but this ones only for the UK.

Competition ends on Friday 1st February.

T G Green's provided me with these mugs free of charge, to review and run this fantastic giveaway, so this is a sponsored post.

  3. Completely didn't read the rafflecopter box properly! We are similar to you, with our anniversary in March we don't do too much. I'm hoping there will be a Dine in for £10 on Valentine's day, as a little treat!

  7. Aw, I love these mugs! (Also, I love love!).

    For Valentine's Day Craig & I try to do something different than going out for a meal. Last year we went to see Brand New, which was perfect, so I'll just need to try and find a similar gig! x

  14. What a lovely picture and blog. Thank you for making me feel all warm and soppy. We will spend Valentines night in, hopefully in front of a nice fire and I will cook something special. I am not sure yet what it will be but the OH is an unrepentant carnivore so steak might feature. The mugs are superb. Tea or hot toddy suitable.

  15. What a lovely picture and blog. Thank you for making feel warm and soppy. We will spend Valentines night in, hopefully in front of a roaring fire and I will cook something nice. I am not sure what yet but steak is likely to feature as MrJ2S is an unrepentant carnivore. Love the mugs. They look suitable for tea or hot toddy.

  21. We'll be apart this year as I'm away with work, first one we won't have together, not particularly fixed on it normally but over the last three and a half years it's been a lovely excuse to stop and vocalise what we think of each other, our love and plans for the future.... Not necessarily to make a big show or buy lots of stuff. That having been said I'd love to give him this mug to celebrate the coming together of my two loves, him and a good cuppa. When we met he didn't drink any hot drinks...shock horror I know, not sure how he functioned, or how his soul coped with a hot drink shaped hole.... Well I've surreptitiously made my mark and the other day he CHOSE to make himself one (and with half as much sugar as normal too- he's learning sugar in tea=unfortunate and unnecessary! So the idea of my Leonard, cuppa in hand, on the 14th, even if it's over Skype not in person, is a pretty good one!

  22. I'm a bit bummed as I've just learned I'll be away for work on Valentine's. :-( Maybe if I win the mugs, I'll take mine with me (as I'll be away in overseas office for a week) and husband can use his at home. Another way to be connected.

  24. We don't do Valentines as it's the day before my birthday so we do St Dwynwen's day instead which was yesterday. Dinner at our favourite pub and a cwtch for us.

  25. It's my hubby's birthday immediately before Valentine's day, so we tend to splash out on that. This year we are having a trip to London and going to a couple of shows. So we'll be exhausted when we get back and will enjoy a quiet night in at home
