Yesterday was my birthday and because it was such a fabulous day, I thought I’d share a few little snippets!
I woke up to a huge box of cupcakes, which my boyfriend had brought home from work in the night. He works in a cool hotel and there were loads left after an event, so he reserved a box for me! He is very thoughtful and handsome.
We then proceeded to have a glorious day in Bath, where for the first time in about a month the weather was beautiful! We had a cream tea in Sally Lunn’s Eating House, famous for its delicious buns made with a secret recipe that is passed on with the deeds of the building. Sally Lunn was a French refugee who arrived in Bath 1680, and her buns were extremely popular in Georgian society. My bun was so delicious, I bough another one to take home for a super treat.
We also visited the Royal Crescent and the Jane Austen House Museum, and we had a look inside Bath Abbey which is magnificent.
A lovely day in Bath was followed by a lovely evening in Bristol. I had all my friends over and we got drunk, which is the best way to spend a birthday! I think I danced in the kitchen for about four solid hours.
I was also treated to some fab presents. I got sausage-dog earrings and an Arctic hare brooch from my sister, and a funky knitting book from my mama. My exotic Lithuanian friend Amber got me a cool book about James Joyce, and Kirsty and Elliot (who I’m moving to London with) baked me a tea cake loaf! I was also grateful to Hannah for my bottle of ‘bubbles’, which certainly did not last long.
Thanks to all my pals who came and celebrated with me! It was a super weekend.
