Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my 34th birthday and normally being the start of June, we have glorious sunshine. Not so yesterday.....I woke up to gale force winds and torrential rain, it was like Winter had returned! Still, I didn't let it dampen my birthday's what we got up to...

Turns out toddlers aren't very good at keeping secrets because as I was in the shower I heard Elliot shout "Mummy, we are having a surprise party breakfast for you!!" and my husband trying to shh him! So I had to pretend to be surprised when I was faced with a Minions birthday cake...and randomly some cheese & pineapple! Elliot was mega excited about the birthday cake and I got treated to a rendition of Happy Birthday to you, Squashed Tomatoes with look like a monkey and you smell like one too. Thanks Elliot!

I'm not sure what kind of face he's pulling in the bottom one, looks like he's in pain!
As the weather was so bad in the morning, we just stayed home and watched Elliot's current favourite film - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I don't know what it is about this film but he wants to watch it ALL the it's getting a little tedious!

We decided to go out for lunch for a treat as it was my birthday so we persuaded my hubby to take a lunchbreak and we just went to a local pub. It's nothing fancy but Elliot eats free which is always a bonus! We dropped hubby back at work afterwards and Elliot was starting to get a bit tired. So I whacked on some Hayley Westenra in the car and did a few laps of the dual carriage way and he was asleep in no time! By this point the rain had stopped and the sun had made an appearance so I parked up at my favourite view point and read a magazine for the first time in ages. I would say it was peaceful but the snoring from the back of the car was pretty loud ;)

When he woke up from his slumber we visited my Grandparents and then ended up back at my Mum and Dad's house. I got spoilt with some lovely presents, we had a yummy curry for tea and then we had homemade birthday cake for pudding! Elliot had actually helped make and decorate the cake, I wonder how many smarties ended up in his belly and not on the cake though!

Birthdays are never the same as you get older and especially when you have children but I had a nice day...and I've got enough cake to keep us fed until next week at least ;)

  5. I know what you mean - birthdays aren't the same when you are older, but at least we can live our young birthday fantasies through the kids when they have theirs! Still sounds like you had a great day. Love the pics of Elliot asleep!

  6. How sweet! My daughters are still excited about their own birthday when mine comes around and it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement!! One year, though, I quite literally forgot it was my birthday until a neighbour showed up with a cake. In my defense, I was busy... throwing my daughters' party! (Yes, we had far too much cake that year.)

    Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.
