Birthday Month!

On Sunday I celebrated my birthday, it was such a glorious day with the sun shining making it feel like summer, the way July should feel! We’ve been denied the sun this year so we’ll have to make the most of it, apparently it will be less sunny next week.

I never plan to do things on my birthday, I’m not into hosting parties or making it a big deal out of it. I do however love receiving cards and messages, and of course thoughtful presents big or small. My B is usually very good at buying for me, however due to forking out an insane amount of money to fix the valleys and box gutter on the roof to keep out the rain I said not to bother with any gifts. Plus we were saving to go to Berlin for it, though it’ll have to be in August now due to B’s passport expiring!! However it didn’t stop B buying me this dress I wanted from ASOS in pink. I love these woolly dresses and think they would make an alternative winter bridesmaid dress! I’m sure most brides will look at me weirdly for even suggesting it, but I really like them, the hair accessories look great with it too. Anyway back to birthday, I had a lovely day, we had a massive lunch at YO Sushi and I came out in a sweat carrying a 10lb food baby! It hurt!

We had a wander around the shops as I received money from B’s parents and grandparents so I could treat myself but I didn’t. Oh well, more to spend in Berlin. I really am looking forward to rummaging their flea markets and vintage shops.

After eating too much we walked back to B’s grandparents (where we parked the car) via the museum. We had a little wander round before taking a tea break at the grandparents. They live in a private block of flats (10 floors) and the views are panoramic. You can see the Isle of Wight when it’s a clear day and you get great views of thunder and lightening!

Thanks for those who wished me happy birthday, I may not know you all in real life but it was still nice of you to take the time to message me. Go make yourself one of these, on me! xxx
