So it was my 23rd birthday last week but I'm just getting down to blogging about it today. A bit unusual but I've been going through this week at like 100mph and barely had time to breathe but here it is!
I'm finally at a consecutive number age and I have a slight niggling feeling that this will be the best year yet! My birthday was on Monday 18th February and I spent the day mooching around the town centre and then I paid a visit to my mum's work where she got me a bunch of flowers. So lovely and the lillies have JUST opened up so the house smells all nice and florally now. I spent the rest of the afternoon at home chain watching Korean drama which might sound boring but it's sooooooo
In the evening, me my brother and my mum went out for dinner to Prezzo where I managed to nab a 25% off voucher for the meal. Food always tastes better when it's got a significant discount attached to it! My brother had made his first ever cake for me and it was massive! 3 layers and everything! So proud of him! We chowed down on that and there ended my day. Gone are the days of extravagant parties and nights out. Most of my friends are normal 9-5ers and others are half way around the world so spending a day like this is absolutely perfect for me!
You're wondering about the gifts aren't ya? Well, I didn't ask for much this year (mainly because Christmas and Chinese New Year just happened!) so my mum and my dad got me some money and my brother got me a bag full of DVDs. He did this last year as well, he never knows what to get me but DVDs are usually the safe option! I'm saving money like a maniac just now so I'm pretty content. Read: very content.
Life may not have gone how I planned but it's the small things in life that still make me smile.
