Birthday Pretties & Shenanigans

Thursday, 21 June 2012

You may have heard me mention that it was my birthday coming up. I wasn't going to do this post at first as I thought it may be a bit braggy, but a couple of people have asked, and I actually didn't get mountains of things so I figured it would be ok.

My birthday fell on the Sunday, which meant I got a full weekend of Birthday-ness. On the Friday, my other half took me to TGI Fridays, for ribs and shrimp. We were going to go and see The Avengers, but we were both quite tired afterwards. We intended to go another night but it didn't happen!

I spent Saturday with my parents, thrift shopping (look out for this coming up), and then they took me for a gorgeous pub lunch at The Royal Oak, in Hurdlow, which is at the end of the Tissington Trail. I wish I had took a photo to show you, as the steak and ale pie I had was HUGE!! With homemade chips veggies and gravy. I was really stuffed, but it was absolutely fantastic.

On Sunday (my actual birthday) I got breakfast and presents in bed, and a takeaway curry in the evening, and a lovely afternoon walk with the pup.

So here are the gifts I received - I'll be honest, I picked most of them myself. As we were due to go on holiday, my other half couldn't afford to risk buying me something I didn't like,so he asked me to pick what I wanted.

'Almost'-Alexa Bag from Preciousbags.co.uk, Fifty Shades of Grey,
Kinky Cupcakes book, Silver Charm Bracelet, IPhone Cover, Kindle cover, Notepad, Vintage Suitcase

The iphone cover and kindle cover were both bought from Etsy. You may have seen this cover
when I linked up to Current Crush Thursdays. My friend bought my the notepad for
blog ideas - she's the only person who knows about my blog (aside from my other half)

This is an example of one of the cupcakes in the Kinky Cupcakes book.
