I’m 23. I’m 23 years old. I’m getting on a bit…
I had such a good birthday. It started on the Friday (actual birthday was on Saturday). I had a pub lunch with some colleagues which was great. The pub we go to is less than 2 mins away walking wise and they do great chicken goujons. I like anything such as chicken goujons, chicken nuggets, chicken dippers, you name it. I LOVE them.
There was a bit of peer pressure to finish my vodka & coke but as the last one was my second, I did not. I still had an afternoon of work to do and didn’t want to get into trouble. Just not worth it. I took the disapproval from my peers and moved on.
That evening I went home, had a shower to freshen up and put some heels on to get ready for a night out. My boyfriend turned up with some lovely white roses. He’s good to me. He looked good to. My friend then picked us up and took us back into the same town that I work in.
We went to a place called the Slug & Lettuce. I go there every year for my birthday, it’s become a little tradition. 2 4 1 cocktails & desserts. You can’t go wrong really.
As it was my birthday, we got a free bottle of prosecco which was great! Few bubbles to start off the night! This ended up with another bottle and a few cocktails. There was food though! I had a main meal called Smothered Chicken which is basically chicken, bacon, bbq sauce with chips & peas. It’s so so good and I get it every time.
There was also pudding. I had chocolate puddle which is warm chocolate cake with ice cream. Yum yum yum.
Once we had paid the bill, a few people from work decided to turn up which was ok. I wasn’t overly keen as I don’t usually mix work friends with outside friends but it wasn’t terrible. It was just slightly awkward. I didn’t let this ruin the night though.
Next day was my birthday and at first, woke up at 8:30am which is very unlike me without a hangover which was great! Woke my boyfriend up so I could open my presents. I’m a big kid really.
Had bacon & cheese baguettes for breakfast, also very yum. Then to the most important bit, PRESENTS!
I had so many! From candles to nail varnishes to body butters to earrings to charms for my pandora bracelet to peter pan jumpers to gym accessories. You get the picture. I was spoilt rotten!
After present opening, we headed into London. This is when my hangover started to appear. Not so good… went straight to a train station coffee shop to grab a caramel latte and a water for emergencies.
As soon as we got into London, we did a bit of shopping. Bought some cool Harry Potter shirts, massive fangirl but it was in Primark and it would be rude not to. Also got some PJ shorts which I actually need.
We then went to Burger King and ordered 2 XXL double bacon cheese burgers and oh my god, it was so good. I love Burger King… yum.
After that, feeling a bit full we walked to the CREME EGG CAFE
We had a 40 minute wait queuing which was fun. I was hoping it would make me feel less full so I could enjoy it a bit more. We got interviewed by a French radio though which was quite cool. Never thought I’d get to talk about creme eggs so much in 10 mins. Once we were inside you had a choice of takeaway, restaurant or ball pit. We didn’t have much time left as we had to be home for a family takeaway by a certain time so we went for the takeaway.
We ordered two creme egg toasties which is literally melted creme eggs in toasted bread. IT WAS AMAZING. So worth the 40 minute wait even if I did feel a bit sick from the BK still…
After getting the train home, we were ordered by my mum to go to our local Chinese takeaway to pick up our order. That’s right. Burger King, Creme Egg toastie and now a Chinese…. by the end of this, I felt like the size of a house. There was also Millie’s Cookie Cake…..
Overall, I had a great birthday weekend. My family, friends and boyfriend didn’t let me down and spoilt me rotten. Feeling lots of love ❤
