Happy birthday to me!
February 7, 2011 by threesmallapples
Crumbs. Getting older is a scary thing. More responsibility, a slower metabolism (please don’t slow down, please don’t slow down…) and just being generally forced to grow up. So how do you make it less terrifying? Having the best party/friends and family ever helps. Maybe it’s old age that’s making me a bit soppy, or maybe I really do know some awesome people…
Watching Jurassic Park in a cinema with 60 of your friends is definitely the best way to start a new decade…
Followed by 12 hours in a bar filled with chums and balloons.
Eating almost a whole Red Velvet is quite fun too (Arg metabolism… please don’t slow down..! Olly botched up the icing with the cloche before I even laid eyes on it.)
And if that’s not enough, there were presents too. Quite a lot of them:
A winter birthday might mean that I’ll never be able to have a picnic birthday party but flowers like these stop me from moping too much.
I didn’t think it was possible to improve cake… but it turns out that I was wrong.
You can never have too many scarves or corsages.
How sweet is this dinosaur necklace? Hand made for me by a talented friend.
Statement rings are a welcome addition to any outfit.
In the absence of sunshine, I’m opting for chunky florals…
I hate to brag, but I’ve got a fab book shelf.
Everyone knows that getting older means getting more forgetful, so Jacq put together an album of my best bits!
My best bits include red cords and a raspberry flavoured, white chocolate mocha!
This much longed for Roberts Radio will be perfect with the blue flamingo bedroom walls that I hope to have soon!
I’ve got books on sewing, and I’ve now got a sewing machine. All I now need is a ounce of skill!
Here’s hoping that all my birthdays will be as bloody lovely as this one.
