oh, it has been another month since i have last been here. i am terribly rubbish these days. my inspiration is so very minimal and being at work nearly everyday, all day, makes my mind frazzle and my daydreams turn to dust. though the sun has been shining and my smile has been spread all over my freshly freckled face and i am back!
there are far too many photographs but i had to include all my adventures. so this post is a big one! i have seen spring lambs and pretty blossoms. i have sunbathed in london's parks for a birthday. i have eaten alot of cake and ice cream and homemade bunny biscuits. i have had marshmellow in my cereal. i have had a another tattoo, placed upon my finger. i have had friend's come to visit, to stay, to drop by. i have bought dresses and skirts and stickers and letter sets and thank you cards. i have had my birthday. i have celebrated another friend's birthday. i have smiled and laughed and smiled some more.plenty of cafe nero meet ups with my dear friend nicola for chats and catch ups. i always have the best fun with her. she makes me laugh and we always do silly things and speak in silly accents.april 14th was my 24th birthday. it did not make me feel older, though moving out from my home as a grown up probably did do that already.
anyway, i had the most loveliest birthday. sebastian bought me a new camera...as my old one decided to take a long long sleep, which i was so surprised at...it is gold and beautiful. i got lots of lovely things from family and friends too. mother took me shopping on the day which was so nice. i miss her lots.my cute little nephews j and t bought me some beautiful flowers and delivered to me on the evening of my birthday...they were so cute! love them. and tulips are one of my favourites!nicola visited me the day after and we had cake and tea and planned our joint birthday party for that coming weekend. our friends that we went to university with were coming to stay.mother made us this beautiful chocolately gooey cake with fresh cream and edible butterflies for our party. this was absolutely delicious. she is the best! the lovely sebastian made me this golden unicorn for my birthday too. he is so very wonderful!
after the birthday fun and celebrations was preparation for easter and looking forward to the bank holidays off work to spend with sebastian and visiting family and such. the weather was perfect! it was also nicola's birthday. i went to her lovely abode for tea after a lovely day out and lunch at our favourite haunt. in the evening we found an amazing photo booth that took old fashioned photos...we spent an hour there. the long easter weekend consisted of a barbeque at papa bear's with the dogs and sebastian...and little brother samuel came home from university for a surprise! was so amazing! it also involved easter packages from nan and gramps. an easter egg hunt. making grown up easter cakes with nuts. teeny family visits. little walks through the deserted town. more chocolate eggs and triangles and giant eggs. going to papa bear's house is one of my favourite things. his cottage is in the middle of nowhere and his garden is beautiful. his flowers. his views, the birds that visit for nuts..and the squirrels. the pet tortoise. and the two dogs. just so picturesque and it feels like a film set or the perfect place for a book's story. just so lovely. he also has a fridge packed full of lovely drinks. and a freezer full with ice cream and ice pops. easter monday breakfast. farm eggs and toasty soldiers. then a bit of chocolate.
