My Birthday - Turning 20

IMG_2573.jpg

Birthday CardDisclaimer - it isn't my birthday. It isn't even still close to my birthday. My birthday was 11 days ago and I haven't spoken about it since. *shocked face* Also, I am so sorry. Most of these are re-used instagram photos but I was having such a good time that I didn't take many pictures. I had a bloody brill birthday. In fact, it was awesome. Which was lovely because leading up to it I was so nervous. I put a lot of pressure on my birthday because I want it to be perfect and everyone to have a good time and be just as happy as me - does that even make sense? I just like the world to be a brilliant place on my birthday.

My birthday started out with a rather cuddly lie in. I actually woke up really early because my brothers girlfriend had been in labour for a few days so we were all on high alert awaiting my niece. And guess what guys? She arrived on my birthday! Yes. My first time being an aunty and she arrived on my birthday - guess I can never forget her birthday, eh? IMG_2609

She arrived healthy and happy with both her and mum doing well, which was a pretty good way to wake up I would say. Anyway, they live about 2 and a half hours away so I didn't actually see them on that day but lots of photos were exchanged.

Back to my day. I woke up properly about 9ish with MT singing Happy Birthday to me. He then asked me to open the curtains, which I tried to do with my big toe because you know, the world outside is cold. He told me to get out and open them properly - party pooper. But there was a ma-hooo-sive bunch of flowers waiting for me on the windowsill, and that was the first surprise.

At 10am on the dot my best friend turned up with another bunch of flowers and lots of other goodies. I don't want to give too much away because I want to do a birthday present video in the near future. Not long after she showed up, my stepmum did too. So the four of us sat round and I opened all my lovely presents.

The house was a busy place on my birthday, that's for sure. I am so lucky because so many people made an effort to come and see me on that day. However, it meant that me and MT didn't get round to having breakfast until 12.30... Not really breakfast, huh?

Once we had finally managed to eat we had a bit of a chill and a cuddle whilst burning some of my new candles. I am a total candle addict. But as soon as breakfast/lunch had settled and we had chilled enough we got ready and went out for pizza - which you can read about here. It was yum.

This lead us up to about 5pm, which is about the same time my friends arrived. So we quickly got ready and opened the prosecco. We ended up going to a town about 20 minutes away from where we live for some cocktails. It was honestly one of the best nights I have every had. We ended up in this absolutely packed bar/nightclub/bingo hall I believe? And it was blooming epic. It played the best music - everything from Neil Diamond to Tina Turner to more current chart stuff. I has the best time.

So yeah that was it, I woke up the next day with a slightly sore head, but it was worth it. Also, I turned twenty and the world didn't end so thats a bonus.

But I really want to say a massive thank you to everyone that helped me celebrate my birthday, or said happy birthday to me. It was wonderful, so thank you. Here's to my twenties.
