My Life In Photos // October Celebrations!

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!!

    1. Thanks! I got loads from the harbor but I don't have space in my schedule to post it until February haha!!
      I should have stated that Jake took the one in the car too, for safety reasons ;)
      Thank you <3

    1. Aw thanks Amber :) Most are just quick shots as I never really stopped for the two days haha. I had work each morning too - don't know how I managed as I usually sleep 8 hours every night :P

      Oooh it's a popular birthday! Hope you guys had an awesome time :)

  3. Are you kidding? This looks like the ABSOLUTE best way to celebrate a birthday. Sounds like a brilliant day (weekend!) and I didn't know the poppies were on tour, that's pretty cool. I'll have to see if they're near me any time.

    1. Haha Thanks so much Michelle :) It really was brilliant. They are! They're currently at Liverpool I think so keep an eye out to see if they come round your neck of the woods.

  4. This is my kind of birthday! I have come to realise that birthdays are all about spending it doing exactly what you feel like doing. I'm still undecided for my birthday this year, I can't decide whether to do a little day trip or to stay inside and enjoy a duvet day.

    1. Heck yeah we are party animals!! :P
      They really are. Whatever you do I'm sure it'll be fab. When is/was your birthday?? Have I missed it?!

  5. I think it sounds like you had a wonderful birthday - surrounded by the people you love, doing the things you enjoy most! I've never been one for big nights out on my birthday - in fact, I've spent the past few birthdays on mini-breaks with my boyfriend, going sight-seeing, out for lunch, trips to the zoo, etc. I must prefer a full couple of days to relax and enjoy than a crazy drunken night.

    p.s. I just bought tickets for next year's Disney on Ice and I'm so excited! It's such a fun night!

    p.p.s. Did you spot any seals?

    1. It was indeed :) Mini breaks and time away with the other half is the best way to celebrate. I'm looking forward to going to York for Jake's birthday in February!

      Ah how exciting!! There are no dates for Newcastle for 2016 :( And we didn't, which was strange because they are always there haha
