My Birthday

My 29th birthday on saturday was quiet, but nice. We had some family around for homemade chilli with rice and nachos, with homemade rice pudding for afters (does anyone else call dessert 'afters'?).

After lunch we had an iced sponge cake - with a jam and blue buttercream centre  - made by one of our neighbours, which was lovely and so kind of them to go to all the effort.

In the evening, Paul, our friends and I met up so I could finally watch the last Harry Potter film, it was brilliant, I even cried in a few places, definitely worth the wait. If you haven't already seen it I highly recomend it. We then went for a few drinks at TGI Friday's before heading home.


So, over all, a pretty relaxed birthday.


  1. Looks like you had a lovely day!

  2. Sounds like a fabby birthday! Sorry I missed it... been a bit busy round here.
    Love the blue birthday cake - how kind of your neighbour to make it for you.
    I haven't seen the last Harry Potter film yet... I hope it's out on DVD before Christmas, 'cos it's on my present list!
    And, yes, sometimes we also say "Afters" when we mean pudding/dessert!
