26

This week saw the arrival of my 26th birthday. I've had such a wonderful week filled with lots of food, laughs and fabulous presents. 


I'm feeling excited for 26th year - I have lots of plans and aspirations I want to work towards. My birthday started with a rather wonderful gift from Craig on Thursday morning - an iPad Mini! I've wanted one for ages buts its always been one of those things I struggled to justify because I didn't really need one. Needless to say I love it and would love any app recommendations? I've been toying with the idea of getting a couple of magazine subscriptions on there too - again any recommendations would be fab.


I then headed off to work and was surprised by my lovely team with bunting and banners decorating my desk. We also had what can only be described as a feast for the entire team to gorge graze on throughout the day. I provided a Malteser cake which looked rather delightful and went down a storm. It certainly made working on my birthday more bearable and to round the day off I was given some really sweet gifts from my co workers along with some beautiful flowers.


After work I headed home only to be surprised by a few more little gifts from Craig - a complete yoga kit and a pretty iPad case. As if I wasn't feeling spoilt enough we then headed out for a curry with friends. I opted for Lamb Dopiaza with Rice and an obscene amount of poppadoms to start with.


Karen provided dessert with one of my favourite treats - bannoffee pie! I must confess after all of the food I consumed throughout the day I only managed a couple of mouthfuls but it was absolutely divine!

Feeling happy and content and absolutely stuffed we arrived home and fell straight into a deep and peaceful sleep. I feel truly lucky and blessed to have such amazing people in my life and look forward to becoming the best version of me in my 26th year.
