Sooooooo... another birthday chalked up on the great blackboard in the sky! 28 years old (young?). As has often been the case, I shared my birthday with election day. Thankfully we do postal votes in our household, so it didn't 'get in the way' of my day in anyway.
I've had a nice birthday - suffered from the post birthday blues shortly after, but it was very nice and extended into the weekend. Thursday (birthday) I spent with my parents, we visited Fyne Court (National Trust) - just had a little walk and enjoyed their coffee shop.
We then popped into Watchet where Mum and I perused the second hand bookshop (we made their day buying 10 books between us! They said we'd doubled their sales for the week!). I've included a few pics from Watchet. I was enjoying the textures as you can see! Don't you think that anchor looks like it's on a thickly iced cake?
We also partook of some ice cream. Ethan enjoyed his day... but didn't nap very well and as a result was very overtired come bedtime. That combined with teething meant we had a VERY BAD NIGHT. Happy Birthday! Thankfully it's becoming a distant memory now. Poor little mite! We had our friend Chris over in the evening to join us in birthday cake and a movie:
I got my lovely present from Pete!
We had some cool balloons with LEDs in them - here they are in the garden (long exposure):
Friday we went to Cardiff so I could buy some much needed bras. I came away with three lovely new bras which are comfy and fit properly! Yay! We also popped into Paperchase (bought some paint brushes) TK Maxx (purple Berkenstocks! Whoop!) and Topshop (knickers and a nightie!). A good days shop. Ethan loved getting the train there and back - not his first time on a train! He enjoys them, looking at the view rushing by outside and flirting with all the other passengers! We popped into Mothercare whilst we were there and entertained Ethan with a Lamaze Octotunes - he loved it so much, I'm now trying to win one for cheaps on ebay...
Had some drinkies at The Rummer in Bristol Saturday night - mmmmmmmm gorgeous cocktails!
Sunday we went for a pub lunch with friends which was scrumptious!! Truly yummy :) Here's Ethan with Alice:
I'm feeling quite excited tonight... I've come up with a new project - I'm going to sand down, varnish and re-upholster a stool of ours that is rather worse for wear. Just ordered some gorgeous Japnese fabric from ebay. Probably won't be able to start work on it until Thursday as I have dance tomorrow... if I can sand it down and varnish on Thurs that'll be great.. that'll be the most time consuming bit.....
For your pleasure (!!??) here are my berkenstock clad feet with glittery nails!
