The big 3-0

December 29, 2013

A little out of date now but I still want to remember my birthday.

It was a very quiet birthday… something I am not used to but I will make right next year…

We took a walk up to Brandon Hill for a hot chocolate float in the glorious November sunshine…

Then went for a lovely Sunday lunch at our new favourite haunt – the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, where I was surprised by my husband as a huge group of our friends joined us…

I was spoiled some more by him in the form of the Lily bag which I have wanted for a long time. In black naturally.

I also had lots of gorgeous gifts from my friends, chocolates and cashmere, bubble bath, and a treat from my favourite Kate Spade to mention but a few. So very lucky!

On my actual birthday a friend and I took a trip to Bath for afternoon tea at the Pump Rooms…

Then that evening I stayed at home, ordered sushi in and enjoyed some wine followed by digging into my chocolate stash. Heaven.

I also had lunches out with some girlfriends and tea and an amazing victoria sponge for my birthday cake from my Mama.

I thought turning 30 would make me feel old but being married with a baby meant that it barely registered, also prehaps because I didn’t have a party… I am saving that till next year when I can drink cocktails and wear a little black dress!
