My Birthday


As I mentioned in my last post I was feeling a little down about my Birthday and hadn't really made any plans due to my anxiety being quite bad.  Nevertheless, I was determined to have a nice day and to just relax and enjoy it.

If you follow my blog or my instagram you'll know that I'm an avid baker and I'm always busy baking everyone else's birthday cakes that I've never really had a fancy one of my own, so it was lovely to wake up to this surprise cake that my mum had had made for me.  Isn't it beautiful?!

I had a nice relaxing morning with my mum and boyfriend opening presents and then, seeing as the sun decided to make an appearance for my birthday, me and my boyfriend decided to take a nice little stroll around the village with Riley.  I love spring walks and all the pretty flowers blooming down the lanes.  Then we spent the afternoon eating yummy snacks and watching a movie.  In the evening we had a Greek takeaway and then a few friends came round for drinks.  All in all it was just the kind of birthday I needed this year.

Finally, as I got some lovely gifts from friends and family, and here goes the obligatory I'm not bragging statement but I love seeing the gifts other people get for their birthdays, so I thought maybe you'd like to see what I got too.  Or maybe I'm just nosey.

Off for a nice long soak in the bath now and to use some of these Lush goodies.
