How cute is this little piglet from the ice-cream farm?
Friday: Today was my birthday and excited is an understatement! I dunno about you, but I absolutely adore birthdays - this is the one day out of the whole year which is all about you and you get presents, what's not to love! I turned 25 today, and although I was feeling a little out of sorts about it, I kind of figured that it's inevitable that I'm going to get older - I can't stop it so lets just embrace it! And lets face it, my car insurance should be a little bit cheaper now lol! Today I had breakfast in bed, which consisted of croissants and bucks fizz and then I opened my presents (which I shall show in a separate post)! We then headed on out for a day of fun in Liverpool! I mainly got money for my birthday so off I trotted to spend my ££ on lots of lovely little treats! As a birthday treat, we had a late lunch at Jamie's Italian - I am actually a little bit in love with Jamie Oliver so I was very excited to eat here and boy what a treat it was! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was perfect (and I very rarely comment/tip on service but this was impeccable)! We then headed home to see my Mam & Dad - I haven't seen my dad on my birthday since I was 19 (he works away during the week) so it was a real treat to sit down and enjoy time together on my birthday!
Saturday: Today I awaited the arrival of 2 of my Uni friends who were coming up to celebrate with me! We spent the afternoon catching up over chippy chips (they did travel to the seaside after all, it would be rude not to let them have the whole experience) and curled up on the sofa watching 'No Strings attached' which I would highly recommend if you're ever after a true rom-com!
We then got ourselves all dolled up and headed on out for dinner with some of my home friends and my friend who moved to Sydney was home to join us too! It really was a brilliant night of good food, a few drinks and lots and lots of laughter!
Sunday: Today has been very lazy - a looooong lie in followed by bacon butties and cups of tea! We then headed on out to Snugburys (is an ice cream farm near me which has amazing ice cream) for some ice cream before then set off on their journey back down south! My afternoon has pretty much involved lying on the couch catching up on blog posts I've missed over the weekend and deciding what to have from the curry house - brilliant way to end a brilliant weekend!
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend too!
