Oooh a special 2 day edition of 'My Life in Photos'?! Yes, indeed. Seeing as my birthday was on the Monday and most of my celebrating happened on the Sunday I thought it'd be nice for me to double up the memories so I can look back on this and remember it all. The first 8 photos are from Sunday the 11th of October and the following 6 from my actual Birthday - the 12th!
1// Work done, got dressed and straight in the car to drive South!
2// I've been here before with Jake when we lived down near by, but today I had fun exploring Woodhorn Colliery Museum with Mam.
3// When I found out that the famous ceramic Poppies from London were going on tour I was excited that the North East was actually getting something for a change and had to make the time to see them. Very pretty.
4// Afterwards we made our way to my friend Laura's house where we swapped into her car and headed to town to drop off Mam!
5// At the Metrocentre we spent a little time shopping, then I got treated to a birthday lunch at Pizza hut! :)
6// It seems we were too busy (window) shopping again after lunch to take any photos, so here's us having a quick glass of juice with Mam and Dad before going to our next destination...
7// DISNEY ON ICE, yo!!!
8// Just waving goodbye to my Homeboy Mickey after an awesome couple of hours <3
9// I didn't get to see this boy allll day yesterday so, after work, getting him up from bed and having lots of hugs made my birthday morning extra special.
10// Baker's Granda came round after he finished work to sit with him so that Jake and I could get out by ourselves for an extra a rare mini 'date' day at Eyemouth.
11// A nice walk along the harbor. Bird watching and seal hunting.
12// Such beautiful weather and scenery on our drive home.
13// Once we got home we bundled everyone in the car, picked up Mam from work and headed to their house for a bit. Claire popped round too with the most thoughtful and very me gifts <3
14// Finally back home again and getting the fire lit to take away this autumn chill until bedtime.
(ps. I took the glass tealight holder off the top of the fire after I took this photo - I'm not that silly :P)
Ahh, a very busy but very lovely couple of days. This may not be everyone's idea of celebrating a 25th birthday but it was pretty darn perfect for me. The people I care about, museums, Disney, walking = everything to me. There will also be separate posts on Woodhorn and Eyemouth to come at some point and you can see my birthday haul here, part one of my photos from Woodhorn here and Disney on Ice photography here!!
