My Birthday celebrations

First of all i would like to start off by saying thank you for your lovely birthday comments!! xx

I am now the big 30!!

I have had a lovely few days:

On Thursday, we went to see Katie Melua at Hammersmith (This wasn't for my birthday, infact it was originally ment to be in December and was cancelled) Katie Melua is fantastic live. We never miss a tour.

We had dinner at The gate in Hammersmith, a veggie restaurant that was wonderful. The desserts were amazing!!!

On Friday, a day before my birthday, my hubbie arrived home early from work with these beautiful flowers - Daisies, my favourite flower and 30 white tulips, our wedding flower.

I got some wonderful presents (below) and Cath Kidston Jewellary, Vouchers, Afternoon tea set and much more - i am a verry happy, lucky lady!!!

My gorgeous best friends gifts included a handmade card and jewellary:

Gifts from my hubbie and the boys:

Look at this gorgeous pressie from my Mum:
A box full of lovely things!

I had an amazing chocolate cake from my fave cake maker - Blue Lotus.
I also made some vanilla cupcakes:

On my birthday morning i was surprised with my presents and more cakes from Blue Lotus - mmmm carrot cake for brekkie in bed!!! And a beautiful rendition of Barneys - i love you song on the keyboard by my 3 year old :)

I share my birthday with my best friends little girl - we headed to her party and enjoyed, paninis and scones,  even more homemade carrot cake and Happy birthday sung to me by 13 little kiddies!!!

In the afternoon, the hubbie and i went to London for my main birthday treat:

We stayed at The Bloomsbury:

We had a complimentary cocktail in the bar:

And a fabulous dinner here:

We had more cocktails here:

And here (somewhere we have been visiting since we have known each other):

 We woke to a wonderful breakfast tray in bed, my hubbie took me shopping in Covent Garden and then we headed home to spend the rest of the day with the boys.

And there are even more celebrations to come!!

My hubbie is also 30 this month so we have meals out with friends, another night away and a big celebration in Brighton later this year!!!

I think we are celebrating big for our 30th as we missed out on celebrations for our 21st as i was very pregnant with my eldest son - well thats my excuse anyway ;)
