It was about 11 o'clock when I and Erik drove to Tartu. First of all we were searching for the perfect table - the one that fits in the living-room. Luckily we got it from my favourite furniture store Mööbliait and it really suits superbly in our living-room. I also bought a set of tiny ceramic jewellery boxes from that store.

And then we visited several building supply stores but didn't find what we were looking for, so better luck next time. Nevertheless I finally got myself a red kitchen scale and some other kitchen stuff.
As a matter of fact I had some kind of shopping mood but there was nothing special to buy. I had an achy joint, so I wanted to console myself (at least I could drink "the cocoa king" of Coffee In).
Finally we visited Erik's parents, ate delicious chicken with rice, afterwards grabbed some meals from McDonald's' drive in to enjoy them at home and I fell asleep unexpectedly early.

Sunday, 13th of FebruaryI woke up even before 8 o'clock and started to operate in the house. By the way I even planted some herbs like thyme, celery, majoran, onion too. They fit perfectly on the window-sill of my workout(-office) room.
Later I spent some time doing my work stuff and then made a white chocolate cake.
250 g of cocoa cookies
75 g of melted buttertopping:
400 g of cottage cheese paste
300 g of white chocolate
200 ml of whipped cream
Mix the crushed cookies with melted butter and press the mixture on the bottom of a expandable cake pan (about 22 cm diameter).
Melt the white chocolate. Beat up the whipped cream, mix it with the cottage cheese paste and with the melted chocolate.
Put the frozen strawberries on the cookie-bottom. Pour the chocolate-cottage cheese mixture on top of it.
Put it in the fridge for nychtemeron. Whilst the cake was for the Valentine's Day I made a heart-shaped decoration on top of it.
14th of February, Saint Valentine's DayWe arranged a small Valentine's Day get-together at our place and invited my mom and dad, grandfather and grandmother.
I served the white chocolate cake mentioned earlier, also self-made coconut cookies, compote from apples and plums and a cake brought us by my grandparents. The white chocolate cake was totally delicious and I even had to bring some of that to my coworkers (they insisted) who were very happy about it and said several good words.
Now about the presents I (we) got: Erik gave me two of my favourite flowers - orchids - and to be precise - two Phalaenopsis', one of them a cute pink mini. My grandfather gave me a self-made wooden sign with my name on it. I and Erik also got a box of chocolates, herbal tea and two glass mugs from my grandparents. Mom gifted me the Body Shop body butter and Erik got some candy.
Anyway, we all drank champagne together and just chatted while watching "The dinner for five" and "100 seconds".
