My Birthday Wrap Up
Awoken at 6am by toddler who usually sleeps much later. Thanks for the birthday surprise, my darling. Actually happy to be awake though, because now I get my present from husband who leaves for work soon.
Amazing surprise! A beautiful bunch of flowers with a little jeweller's box sitting underneath. Open it up: a diamond necklace. Be still my beating heart.
Next - finish baking for the lunch I'm having for some friends. On the menu: homemade beetroot dip and hummus with fresh crusty bread, lemon and mint prawns, sushi rolls, three-cheese tart and roast pumpkin salad, followed by Baileys cheesecake and lemon tart.
Friends arrive. Pop open the champagne and wine, serve food and chat.
One friend stays for another bottle - or two - and ate more cake and talked. Her husband arrives with pizza. Chat some more.
What a wonderful day, filled with family, friendship, flowers, cake, champagne and diamonds. Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate my 30th birthday! And thank you to all those who left me lovely messages online! xx
Now to look forward to a lovely dinner out on Saturday night with my gorgeous husband (Abbey is having her first sleepover at her Nanna and Grandad's house!).
