turning twenty three

I shouldn't really be writing this post as I have an exam to prepare for & coursework to complete, but in the midst of the stress & worry I decided to give myself a 30 minute break to relax & refresh. On Saturday I celebrated my 23rd Birthday so I thought I'd share some details from the weekend! It was a pretty quiet one, spent with my family but thats just how I like it, I'm basically a granny & I'm okay with that haha. On Friday I went for tea & cake, (well actually nutella hot chocolate in my case) with my Mum, Nana & little Sister Leah at a vintage tearoom in town. Instead of taking lots of photos I ended up just enjoying the moment & chatting with my family instead of arranging my vanilla cupcake neatly on the plate to ensure it was Instagram worthy. On the actual day of my Birthday Dom brought me Breakfast in bed, a feast of Waffles coated in Nutella & Strawberries with a big mug of Coffee. We then ventured out to the Trafford Centre for a bit of shopping & to finally try out Five Guys, which has now become my new favourite place to eat! Obsessed with the drinks machines... they literally had every flavour of fizzy drink you can imagine, Peach flavoured Fanta being the best in my opinion! To end my Birthday day Dom surprised me with a Coffee cake he had stayed up late to bake the previous night. It was genuinely the best Coffee & Walnut cake I've ever tasted, much better than any shop bought ones, which is quite surprising considering Dom hardly ever bakes... hidden talent I think! On Sunday Dom & I took the dogs out for a walk through the countryside, we completely underestimated how cold & muddy it was so as soon as we got home the fire was put on & hot chocolates were served! I'm heading to London at the end of the month for a belated Birthday catchup/celebration with my other Sister, can't wait to be back in the old smoke & have a little explore!

I kinda like doing these diary style posts every now & again, it's nice to have memories documented so I can read over them whenever I feel like reminiscing. What do you think?
