This tree is in the front garden at the Annexe. Every year the blossoms are frothing off the tree on my birthday. I can’t remember a year it didn’t bloom on my birthday although Mum & Grandma tell me there have been one or two years where the weather has meant that the bloom has already happened.
Just a few pictures from our awesome night at Westbourne House Cocktail Bar last night as the first part of my 30th birthday celebrations. I had a really super time with a big group of friends. Pippa looked amazing with her hair all big & quiffy!
I was very flattered by lots of lovely compliments on my outfit (many thanks for buying me the dress Pippa!) & Tris made sure I drank plenty of soda water & lime alongside the cocktails & some wonderful champagne that Tris’ brother bought me (thank you brother-in-law to be!) so I didn’t feel hungover today.
The staff were very accommodating & the tapas we ordered to share among the party was delicious especially the olives & crab cakes! The cocktail menu is enormous & the bartender had such great knowledge he was able to whip up my favourite Bramble even though it was not on the regular menu.
Without a doubt this is the best birthday I’ve had & it’s only just beginning. Thank you to everyone who has made it special.
At this precise moment it is 00:40 GMT, I am wearing an awesome cocktail dress with a proper net tutu & drinking Assam tea whilst my friends play Rock Band around me. Best way to end a birthday cocktail drinking session ever!!!!
One year ago today with encouragement from my lovely friend Katie I began this blog. Over the past year I’ve had great fun but I realise that I’ve not been brilliant at posting on a regular basis so for the next month I promise I am going to post on Monday, Wednesday & Friday without fail!
