I don’t quite know how I managed it, but I convinced Husband to go to the Celtic Manor for his birthday this year. We visited a lot last year – it felt like every time they emailed with a special offer, we booked up, and we even spent our anniversary there. To say I’ve become … More Happy birthday in a hot bath
Husband had a birthday last week and to celebrate, we visited Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery. I first learnt about the gallery’s opening from the Present and Correct Twitter feed (how hipster), and was super excited to learn that their summer exhibition was Jeff Koons. He has so many collections that I just love – Inflatables, Celebration, … More Newport Street Gallery
The final day of my Birthday Bonanza 2015 was my actual birthday, which tradition dictates is spent with my beautiful Husband. The day started off emotionally, as I unwrapped a brand new Macbook Pro and immediately burst into tears. Husband says he just wanted his Bluetooth keyboard back after my disaster earlier this year but I … More It’s always tea-time
Day two of my Birthday Bonanza was spent shopping in London with my Mum. She tends to go to London with my Dad, and he always has specific shops he wants to visit so she doesn’t get to wander around aimlessly. This was my chance to give her a bit of an aimless wander. We started … More I was thinking about shopping. As per usual.
A couple of years ago, Tim introduced me to a great birthday tradition – the Birthday Bonanza. His greatest Bonanzas go on for weeks, but mine tend to last for three days, the first of which was this Thursday evening up on the Greenwich Peninsula. I wanted to see Trainwreck and knew Husband didn’t have … More Stop your ginger nonsense
About two months ago, I set myself a reminder to go online and book a table for the Duck and Waffle to celebrate Husband’s birthday. I knew from previous attempts at getting a table that the booking opened two months in advance and tables got booked up really quickly – I went online at about … More Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.
Today is my Dad’s birthday, and much like on my Mum’s birthday, my parents are off on holiday (they’re not even retired yet – I don’t know how they have so many holidays!) so I’m not going to see him. I did give him a call this morning, and he gave me a quick run … More Happy birthday to my Dad!
The first part of Day Three started at work, but I could make it through the day because I had BFF, Burgers and Bitching waiting for me in London. BFF and I met at Covent Garden where I marched him down to the Shake Shack. I’ve wanted to try this place since it opened a … More Birthday Bonanza – Day Three
I’m behind on my Bonanza postings, and I only had three days! Anyway, Day Two was a shopping day for Me and my Mummy, which started with my parents’ four rough collies (Saffy, Mollie, Roman, and Skye) helping me to unwrap my presents. I had asked my parents for a BRIGHT YELLOW SUITCASE for my … More Birthday Bonanza – Day Two
August ended as it always does – with the best day of the year, my birthday. An added bonus this year was it falling on a Saturday so no taking the day off for me. And also, I managed to avoid any mentions of Diana, so that was a nice treat. Husband didn’t let me … More Birthday Bonanza – Day One
