Who doesn’t love a birthday?! This year, it fell on a week day and I decided not to take the day off work. Tuesday is a fun day for us. The little girl I look after has swimming lessons in the morning, and in the afternoon, friends came over for tea and cake. I was spoilt by them and my employers, as well as everyone who wished and sent my cards and presents.
After work, I met my parents and brother at one of my favorite restaurants. Its a small italian, nestled down by the river in Henley and their food is the best! I had smoked salmon and asparagus to start, followed by grilled seabream with veggies and new potatoes. Their pudding cart, unfortunately, had nothing dairy free, but I wasn’t too bothered because I knew there was cake at home – mums homemade carrot cake – the best! The waiters did sing me happy birthday, along with a sparkler and shots for everyone!
I had a few cards to open when I got home, and my birthday present from my parents – a Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire Gold watch!!!! I’m super excited to take it for a run tomorrow. My first in 3 weeks, as I’ve been nursing tendinitis in my foot thats final better – yay!
I’m extremely thankful for all the birthday wishes, phone calls, cards and gifts I received from everyone. I had a truly lovely day 🙂
