Some people are just lucky enough to have their birthdays fall on a weekend. Some are extremely fortunate to have them fall on a Bank Holiday weekend. Others work from home and don’t really notice when it’s a Wednesday or a Friday anyway. This would be the case for my lovely boyfriend Mark, who turned 25 last weekend. We had quite the extravaganza weekend planned!
On Thursday, I got to London and we went out on a little bowling date night. He won both games – although I obviously let him as it was his birthday! On Friday, I got some work done and managed to secretly bake a cake in his tiny flat whilst he had a nap. How he didn’t smell the chocolate baking is beyond me, but I’m quite proud of my plan to hide the half-made cake in the wardrobe when he woke up!
Saturday consisted of FA cup final watching, dinner and drinks around Covent Garden and a night out at Sway. The review? Nice place, not too crowded but we had booked a big table and the area given was tiny and the drinks were quite expensive. I’d probably go back though, so I must have enjoyed it.
On Sunday, we headed over to Mark’s parents house for a Sunday roast and a pub quiz. Quite the cure for a hangover and my cake went down a treat. And I loved getting up on Monday and knowing that my email wouldn’t be pinging! We spent the afternoon on the sofa with a film and some birthday chocolates. Great weekend.
