They come, they go, and we're another year older, but we don't really feel any different afterwards, do we?
I want to say a massive thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes, Facebook messages, texts, cards and gifts. I have been thoroughly spoiled, feel a bit overwhelmed, but very, very grateful and appreciative. You are a lovely lot!
On Wednesday, I headed off to Nottingham for the day with my two best buddies, Joanne and Sue.
We had no particular plans, we just wanted a relaxed and meandering sort of day, and that's exactly what we had.
Robin Hood and timber-framed buildings...
and a fabulous view over the city.
The sun shone for our picnic...
and we had homemade rock buns, complete with birthday candle and of course, a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday to you/me!
There may have been G&Ts involved as well.
Then some art...
some vintage browsing...
a coffee stop...
and of course, a selfie in the mirror in the toilets. You're welcome.
1970s Hong Kong-made maxi dress - flea market
Bangles - charity shopped
Sandals - retail
Miracle pendant - car boot
Friends - made them myself
Obligatory dodgy selfies in the pub; I do love my girls!
I'm out at a joint 40th/50th party tonight (fancy dress - you'll have to wait and see!) and my mum and sister are visiting on Sunday. So I've managed to extend my birthday treats over a week, and have had the loveliest of times.
I'm rather behind with your blogs having been unplugged for a while, but I'll be catching up as soon as I can.
Have a great weekend!
