It’s my 30th birthday!

A cake with me and mum in vulva tshirts on, a commissioned vulva painting, a silver ring making kit, a machine embroidery workshop, the flask from Waitrose, a donkey sanctuary, creepy caves, a cream tea, Alec coming down, kareoke, games, big sparklers, a midnight walk to the drawbridge, two generous donations to Bloody Good Period in honour of me,w a drunken chat with Stuart and just all the fun birthday love and joy that I wanted!

Christmas! 

Presents, cooking together, all the food, Jane and Tony coming over, all the cheers-ing, chatting to Stuart on the phone, my new DMs, Stick Man, skyping with the Fems, sitting in front of the fire, playing with Alexa, a feminist book from my brother, Alec’s weird melting video, playing the piano, Soph getting the body mop, Snapchat and naming a gravy boat after Stuart.

Seeing mum and dad. They left us lovely presents too.
Walking along the canal, past cool cafes and beautiful buildings
Being in a flat that plays Monopoly Deal.

What a day. It was my birthday and my first hot one ever. The whole day was amazing. From blueberry pancakes for breakfast to brilliant presents to the bushtucker wineries tour. I ate crocodile, kangaroo, bush tomatoes and handfuls of free chocolate. We drunk wines, ports and liqueurs and I had my first ever sparkling red wine.
We went for a swim at the beach, took family sea selfies and ate delicious salmon for dinner.
It was the best birthday I’ve ever had and I’m so lucky to have shared it with my wonderful family.

Putting the presents under the tree ready for tomorrow.
Floating in the pool in the sun with all my family. But no kids.
Dancing around the living room and singing Christmas songs really loudly.

Last day at work! And I was the boss for the day.
More presents! And some lovely cards with very kind words. Plus a business card from a very lovely tattoo artist.
A night out with dancing to Nicki Minaj. I love dancing!

I got given flowers as a leaving present from a lovely customer at work. It was such a surprise.
And then I got given a bottle of wine 2 minutes later by another customer. I was so touched.
I put my flatmates bed together all by myself.

Two parcels with presents in. I love post and I love presents.

Hanging out with two of my oldest and best friends

Today was my birthday. And it was filled with lots and lots of things that made me smile. And as it’s my birthday I’m going to ignore the three things rule. Here are more than three things that made me smile today.

The windy walk up the hill with my parents.

The lamas feeding in the field.

The rainbow above the houses when we got home.

Getting a Skype kiss.

A delicious dinner with my family.

Drinks and laughter at the pub. Including one of my favourite friends who I don’t see enough.

All in all, a bloody good day!

Apart from the obvious Christmas Day happiness…

The mouse in the garden. Tiny and adorable.

Mum and dad dancing to the new ABBA Wii game. So funny.
