Last Sunday I celebrated my birthday. I was an extremely lucky lady and got lots of lovely gifts. Above are from my sweetheart. I was also lucky enough to get some In Death books, Taylor Swifts new perfume, bath stuff, amazon vouchers, money, a pretty top and a few other bits and pieces.
I met some friends for a coffee in the morning and then we went to The Holiday Inn for their wedding fair, which was really good. It was nice to have some other views about the venue and it was a nice girls day out.
We got an extensive tour of the hotel, that we didn’t receive the first time we went so it was nice to see it all on the whole and see it in a better set up than last years.
We stayed for the bridal show, which really was a little disappointing. There were more outfits for the Mother of the bride than the actual bride or bridesmaids, and most of the bridal dresses were similar in design. Big, floor length style dresses, with some sort of poofy train and the top of the dresses shown were primarily strapless either with lots of diamanté or none. There were no different styles or anything really unique to the styles shown.
In the evening a group of us went to Bella Italia as we had a code for 1/3 off food from voucher cloud. I’ve been twice before, both Christmas meals for work and while I enjoyed the food it was much better this time round even though we did get the table under the stairs near the toilets. It’s always better with a group of friends, I think if we’d gone just alone it wouldn’t have been as good.
It was a really nice birthday all in all!
