Birthday shenanigans

Last thursday I turned the ripe old age of 27!! How did that happen? This year Rich and I both booked the thursday and friday off work so we could go out for the day/get a long weekend. I woke up to a living room decorated with balloons and my cards and presents laid out on the table. I had some really lovely gifts from my nearest and dearest; Lotta from Stockholm clogs, a dress and handbag, cook books, vouchers, and cake, LOTS of cake.

As it was 'my' day I got to do some of my favourite things; go to seaside, eat ice cream and mooch around the charity shops, followed by an evening meal at Hub Box - the best burger place ever!! We started off in Exmouth where the charity shop gods weren't on my side, but we did have a look around Bikelands, that shop is pure bicycle porn. We then moved on to Sidmouth where I bagged a couple of dorma pillowcases and a record for £1.99 to add to my collections. This was followed by scrummy ice creams and a stroll along the sea front before heading home and meeting up with the family for dinner. I think we all ended up in burger induced food comas, I was so full I couldn't even fit in birthday cake.


It was a great day, thank you everyone for making it so special.
