I'm another year older! Wow, 2013 just flew by, and then it was Christmas, and now my birthday's happened and OMG we will be in America soon. Mini-freakout over, let me tell you all about my bday celebrations!
On my actual birthday, the 19th, I had a baby lie in. When I was at school, my birthday was always in half term, and so it feels a bit strange to think I might have to go to work. So I booked it off! I got up just before Mum went to work to open some pressies, and enjoyed jelly beans for breakfast. After a lazy morning and lots of tea, Ash and I headed down to the tattoo shop where I got number 15. Then we drove in to Bath for burgers at GBK and cocktails at the Cosy Club, before bundling back home for dinner and wine with my family. We wrapped the day up by watching Blue Jasmine, which Ash bought me to get us excited for San Francisco (as if I needed any more excitement...)
Birthdays are always a bit overwhelming for me. It's weird to get a hundred people writing on your Facebook wall, texts from friends and colleagues from all over the place and amazing gifts from your nearest and dearest. I was SO incredible spoilt this year, but I'm actually going to save my pressies for another post. I still have some more celebrating to do this weekend, starting with a meal with my parents on Saturday and seeing Russell Howard on Sunday night.
23 is pretty good so far, and hopefully Blink 182 have got this one wrong.
Thank you to everyone who made my 23rd so special.
