true words.


I had an amazing birthday yesterday. Most of the day I ate. And ate. And ate some more delicious food. Had a three hour lunch at The Bath Priory that was fantastic! When I came home I had to have a siesta for about two hours, all that food and wine and cake made me seriously tired. The rest of the day was spent at home with my boyfriend with lots of more food, wine and more cake and movies. A perfect Birthday! .....And thanks everyone for all the birthday cards, emails, texts, fb messages. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family!

Birthday girl.

Today this little chubby turns 29!

Tuesday, 29 March 2011


OK, so this is what I've been up to lately... On Thursday me and Emma went to a small fashion show in the Roman Baths that was really nice. Beautiful setting and beautiful clothes, and then there was the free bellinis and the canapes that were absolutely fantastic. The night continued with good friends and way too much to drink.
On Friday, my little sister Julia arrived. We had LOTS of catching up to do, I've missed her so much. On Saturday me and my friend Kelvin had our joint Birthday party at Opium. SO MUCH FUN. I've got 3 photos from the night. One of all the beautiful cupcakes. One of me, before the guests arrive and the last picture that sums up the night. A picture taken around 04.20, tired dancing feet.
Sunday, was a bit of a daze... Hangover food, bacon and eggs. Relaxing in Adventure Cafe. On Monday, me and sis went to London for the day to meet up with my aunt Joan and cousin Alexandra that were visiting from Canada. We had a lovely long lunch, strolled around in the antique market in Covent garden and just talked and talked and talked... I love my family! ....and now i'm exhausted after amazing but intense days....
