Birthday celebrations!

So it's official, I'm now twenty nine...eek! How did that happen. That's just crazy talk if you ask me. I swear I'm meant to be twenty five at the most, the fact that I'm now twenty nine is absolute madness! My birthday was actually on Saturday so I've had some time to get used to the idea, but still! I was very lucky indeed to be in sunny Portugal on the day itself, so I thought I'd share with you some of the things I got up to. Just to make you all insanely jealous - yes I'm kind like that! 

Playing multiple games of Uno and Banagrams

Flicking through Empire magazine and home decorating ones

Munching on these scrumptious banana pancakes

Smothering my poor sun burnt legs in moisturiser - clearly I've not got more intelligent with age!

Eating a HUGE cooked breakfast of eggs, beans, toast and mushrooms - scrumptious!

Sinking my toes into the sand

Receiving lovely cards and gifts from my friends and family

Chilling with my two favourites! 

Treating myself to a three hour long lunch with lovely family and close family friends where I ate a chicken club sandwich with potato wedges - as when you're on holiday sandwiches always come with fries!

Enjoying the beautiful sunshine

Drinking my first coffee in a week - blissful!

Sunbathing (in the shade thanks to the aforementioned sunburn)

Walking along the beach

Finally managing to finally pack my suitcase - nothing like leaving it to the last minute!

 Eating a Subway dinner on the plane

Making silly faces with these two randoms!

Playing umpteen games of Pictureka on the iPad - I'm addicted

Admiring the colourful cliffs

Calming my panicked sister on the flight home :(

Almost throwing up my scrumptious pancake and sandwich lunch thanks to the hilly car journey home...

 Searching for shells on the almost empty beach

Starting a new book - James Patterson for a light read after finally starting (and finishing book two of) Game of Thrones!

Staring at the seemingly never-ending Mediterranean Sea

So there we go, that's how I celebrated my 29th name day (as they say in A Game of Thrones). Not a bad way to spend a birthday if you ask me! I hope you had an equally awesome Saturday too - what did you get up to? 


  1. Those 'two randoms' look like awesome people! xxx

    1. You're wrong - they're totally crazy/psycho. xx
