I got woken at 4am by Mia on my birthday. I think she was excited and didnt want to wait another moment to start celebrating. Gilles took over at half seven and sent me back to bed but i decided to just have a nice long bath instead. He ran me a honey and almond milk bubble bath and i stayed in there for a little while. I then had my sister come over and we went dress shopping in the town. In the afternoon, we had a party at my mums house for me which was wonderful.
On the monday, it was my grandmas birthday. Every year we have a joint birthday lunch at her local garden centre. The family turned up and took over a huge table and we sat in the cafe for two hours before wondering around and picking up some flowers for the garden. We then went to my other grandmas village park and me, my sister and brother all acted like children again. We had a long play and went for a drink at my grandmas.
It was a wonderful two days. I got some wonderful presents (i shall be blogging about a few heart felt gifts soon) and Gilles bought me a 1940's vintage bike. He hasnt gotten to pick it up yet but it is wonderful and i have named her Ivy. I had an old 80's raleigh caprice before called Fifi but she wasnt in great condition and is now in bits in the outhouse. I am looking forward to welcoming Ivy into my life and going out on her to the lake once the girls are sleeping with my camera. Please let summer begin soon!!
I am quite content now being 26. I didnt think i would be but it is a new chapter and i am excited to see what being 26 is going to bring me in life.
