My 24th Birthday ♥

On March 9th I turned the ripe old age of 24. I didn't have any set plans for my birthday, I simply wanted to spend some quality time with my boys and that's exactly what I did. Jacek gave me my gifts from him and Tyler Lee on Friday morning because he said I looked sad, probably not surprising considering all that has gone on in the past three weeks but still, he surprised me and cheered me up with my much coveted after Urban Decay Naked 3 palette which was his gift and five lovely LUSH bath products all wrapped up in a Parisian themed scarf which was Tyler Lee's gift. I was so surprised and delighted with my gifts, my boys are so thoughtful. I had a lazy morning and thought we weren't going anywhere but then we decided to go for dinner. We went to a favourite restaurant of mine The Elm Tree where they were serving delicious carvery dinners, Tyler Lee and I enjoying the turkey option while Jacek chose the beef which I secretly wished I had chosen after tasting it! With it being my birthday I had a strawberry cheesecake with cream and lemon curd as a treat instead of any cake, I loved the lemon curd. It's not often that we go out for meals so this was a real treat, I'm so glad we went, it was lovely to go out and eat as a family. We then stopped by a local beach on the way home but it was far too cold to stay for long, I was wishing we'd experience the glorious sunshine that we had during the week but it just wasn't meant to be. By the time we got home it was time for my baby to go to bed and after I said goodbye to him I had a bath using one of my new LUSH products 'Rose' bubble bar which was lovely, it actually made a lot of bubbles and turned the bath water a dusky pink/purple colour, so pretty! I received lovely cards and gifts from treasured friends old and new and it was so heartwarming to me. As I get older I realise who's important, what's important and that I should concentrate on who is there for me rather than who is not. I'm so grateful for my amazing boys and my wonderful friends, another year with them all in my life is another year well lived... ♥
