First of all, I'd like to apologise for my absence lately. I really appreciate that you've stuck around and still supporting me :) I have had a really rough time over Christmas and the new year for a few reasons including being really unwell, and my 3 year relationship break up. So I haven't felt up to to blogging on top of everything else. I won't go into it too much as I don't want to bore you. But I am feeling better now and things are looking up again, so I'll be posting regularly again soon enough.
Let's move on to the happier part of this post shall we? It's been just over a week since I turned 21! Which was last Sunday. I wanted to share with you what I did with my weekend and some of the lovely presents I received.
Me and one of my best friends Adam up the pub on the night before my birthday.
I really didn't feel up to organising anything, so I just went to our local pub with a few friends on my Birthday Eve (if such a name even exists). It was a good laugh and I had a nice relaxed evening.
On my actual birthday I hadn't planned anything and was just going to stop at home with my family. However my ex-boyfriend decided he wanted to take me out to make up for everything that had happened. I had no idea where we were going until we got there. He took me to Chester Zoo for the day, it was a pretty long drive about 1hr 45mins, but as I wasn't driving I didn't mind :P
When I found out where we were going I wished I'd taken my new camera to get some better shots, but my iPhone didn't do too badly.
How adorable is the baby elephant?
I really want one of these! - I believe it's an Axalot, thank you to Terri for informing me of the name.
Giant Tortoise - N'awww...
All in all, it was a nice day... but a little cold and all the animals were hiding away, so it would have been nicer in the summer. I would like to go back there maybe for a full weekend and go to some of the other places nearby such as Chester Town and Markets, Cheshire Oaks and the Blue Planet Aquarium, soon!
My moms wonderful wrapping skills!
My Giant Cupcake Birthday Cake, complete with all 21 candles haha.
My Birthday treat to myself.
I see my Mom read my Christmas Wishlist post lol.
Tresor Paris Earrings from my boyfriends parents.
Love this Owl bag from one of my Mom's friends, I think everyone knows I love Owls now.
From my brother and his girlfriend :)
Some really thoughtful and lovely presents from my boyfriend ♥
Looking back now I really wish I'd done something more special and memorable. I had a lovely weekend in the end. I had some good laughs and enjoyed the time I spent with all my friends, family and my boyfriend.
Sorry if I've rambled on a bit, and also apologise for the poor photo quality.
Have any of you celebrated any milestone Birthday's recently? & What did you do?
