20 1 09

Apologies for being absent for so long, but I have been very busy because I turned 21 yesterday!!!
I had a magnificent day, mostly because my boyfriend and I went to The Ritz for afternoon tea!!!!!!!! My mum surprised me in the morning with it, she even paid for us to have a glass of champagne with it! Plus she had arranged for a driver to pick us up from my house and drive us there! It was the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my entire life! We weren't allowed to take any photographs inside, but I found a picture on their website of The Palm Court where we ate. It's even taken from the end we were sitting at:



Even the powder room was amazing. It was all pink marble! We ate little sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and little cakes. Everything was delicious! There was a pianist playing the entire time we ate, and then he started playing happy birthday and they brought me out a little cake!!


THEN when we came home I opened my presents. I already knew that my mum's present was going to be a holiday to New York for my boyfriend and me (not going until 1st June) but my boyfriend then surprised me with an extra week in Florida afterwards!!!!!! I still can't believe it! Hands down the best birthday ever!

Also my friend Dean gave me a drawing that he did of me:


I think it captures me quite well! haha!
Hope you're all well xxx
