Long post ahead. Be warned, thankfully like the best books most of it’s pictures. Firstly an obligatory cake selfie. Thank heavens I didn’t catch light!
It was a very wild birthday weekend in the Kelly house this weekend. It started Saturday morning when Charlotte brought me sunflowers and a “best teacher” card. She really is such a sweet kid.
The hedonistic craziness continued with a trip to the gym before meeting the rest of the family (sans middle child at Aunt’s) at a vegan restaurant called Supernatural in Newcastle. They are great for us as a family as my mum is vegetarian and my daughter and I are gluten free and I am now of course sugar free too. They make their own food (doesn’t always happen in restaurants) so they know exactly what’s in it. Even the dog came with us as they are very dog friendly and even have a doggie menu.
Eldest son frequently known as (big lad, you can see why when he’s next to me) kindly paid for the whole thing. He is now a man of work and means!After this my husband, daughter and I headed to the cinema to see MIB the reboot. This was actually very funny and I’d very much recommend it.Now as it was my birthday out I wanted to have cinema snacks but of course not from the concession stand so brought sugar free chocolate and a date bar with me. Shhh don’t tell them, my drink of choice was jasmine green tea. Tea is my drink of choice everywhere at the moment.Sunday the actual day of my birthday, this has been my first birthday without my sons. One is at work and the other his aunt’s. I guess that’s growing up and all that goes with it. I had some lovely presents and cards which showed the rather eclectic nature of my tastes:- vans, a bmth bag, starlord jacket and ruby necklace. Hey even geeks like shiny things.
After presents it was a cooked breakfast (of which I only managed to eat half as my husband cooks like he is cooking for invading armies, both in excess and attempts to please) dog walk and gym (it’s a day ending in y so course gym) followed by a little trip to Warkworth. Here I continued my photo series I think I shall entitle “daughter in doors”
The day is to be finished with a trip to see Much Ado About Nothing at Hulne Priory which was apparently is fabulous. Just waiting right now for it to start.
Genuinely a wonderful birthday and not a glass of wine or sugar filled cake in sight.
