So i said i'd show you the little boys room. I actually really like the orange now. It goes well with the blue bedding/curtains. It is very very bright though!!! Even at night when it is dark the little one looks like an oompah loompah when he faces the wall!! hee hee!! Only one wall should ever be painted in this colour!! Little boy even wanted the ceiling painted!!
Yesterday was my birthday. I have had a few days of celebrations. Dinner at my fave local with my dad and his wife/ Breakfast by the sea with my boys/ A night out clubbing and at the casino/ Indian take away with my Mum and the in laws and then on my actual birthday.......
....... My husband had to go into work on Bank holiday Monday :( It was originally booked off for us to all do something as a family. But hey, these things happen. The lovely man set up everything for me when i woke up. The eldest brought in a tray of tea things (Tea made in a flask) and all my cards and pressies. Then with my hubbie on the phone and my son carrying in an egg free Maya gold chocolate birthday cake, they all sang happy birthday to me.
I love Blue lotus cakes!!!!! My husband also got me a victoria sponge cake for my birthday dinner the day before. The Maya gold chocolate cake was too rich for everyone else - but not for me! oh no!! cake can never be too rich in my opinion!!!
My lovely gifts:
After tea and cake for breakfast, the boys and i headed up to London. We stopped by my husbands work with a box of chocolate cake for everyone there. Then we headed to a very busy Tower of London. The rain held off for us there which was great. The boys loved seeing the Queens coronation crown, the armour, and the soldiers marching up and down:
We then met the hubbie for dinner before heading back home to curl up on the sofa once the boys had gone to bed to watch a film.
Mmmmmm and now to today:
The last ever post at A year of 30 is now up!!! If you have enjoyed following me there, all is not lost. From now on i will be sharing weekly posts here, at this blog, called quite simply ' what i have been up to'.
1) My eldest son is so caring and sweet (yes, he can also be a little sod too) but he made my birthday so lovely, whilst my husband couldn't be there.
2) Being asked for I.D on my birthday night out - whilst the younger members of our party weren't :)
3) Cake for breakfast for the next few days.
