Happy Birthday to me!
Apologies for the silence recently. Work is very stressful at the moment, things aren't going great and we are really having to do everything we can to get sales up. Ian is stressed to high heaven and that along with the move, it has been a stressful couple of weeks, so I just have had no time for blogging....boooo. Ian is off to Bulgaria tomorrow for a week working, so my nights will be free to blog a little more.
This week has been my birthday "Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me!" No big milestone, nor anything to get excited about, I turned 35. I know it sounds so old! More to the point, it sounds so grown up! I still think that I am about 14 in my head and sometimes I feel naughty driving cos really I'm not old enough! So how on earth did I get to 35??? That means that I am on the count down to 40! geeeessssss I am not freaking about my age, just genuinely shocked at how I got here so quickly. I am sure that when I do hit 40 I will have a bit of a meltdown, but that is still a little while off. I really hope that I don't get too hung up on my age, and getting old in general, but I have a feeling that I will. Generally you follow your mother's behaviour and my mother has chosen not to get old. She despises getting old to the point where she often doesn't want to go out. Now, my mother looks amazing, she really does, but she just can't stand the fact she is not in her 30s anymore. I hope that I don't go down the same path, but I don't think I will take too well to the ageing process.
Anyway, the sun was shining so I decided to have a chilled day with my BFF, Scarlett. We had lunch and ice-cream and then Scarlett discarded all of her clothes and played naked in the garden.
Scarlett bought me some fab Wayfarers. I have been lusting after a pair for ages, but thought that it was a little un-necessary as I am already the proud owner of some classic Jackie O's and super stylish Aviators, so a third pair seemed a bit extravagance, but Scarlett (with a little help from her daddy) treated me to these bad boys. Limited edition cream and black Wayfarers. The timing is just perfect with the sun shining.
My mum also treated me to these stunning Michael Kors sun wedge shoes. I just love them and they are perfect for summer. I think I am going to wear them to death!
My friends bought this classic sent Chanel Mademoiselle. So that I always smell nice!
I bought myself some mini bottles of Champagne which we enjoyed in the garden followed by a scrummy meal at one of my favourite places Mitton Hall
