All of last week I was on holiday from work, I take the same week off every year purely to be guaranteed that I won’t be working on the day of my birthday, I do the same with Sophia’s birthday too! I’ve pretty much done this since my first job because they are so fun for me and now I always get to celebrate the whole week!
My actual birthday wasn’t until the Saturday and the only real solid plans were, a night out with all of my friends on the Wednesday, a carvery meal with my family on Thursday and then dinner with my amazing Ruairi on Saturday, but he also surprised me with another meal out on Friday cos he a cutie.
Obviously, the whole week wasn’t all about me, I promise I’m not that self-centred. With working 5 days a week I don't get a lot of time with Sophia in terms of full days and getting to do bedtime with her, so it was nice to have that time with her to do the whole bath/bed routine.
The Night Out.
I am the biggest lightweight in the planet and I really wanted to have a good time and still be able to have a decent amount of drinks too! So, the plan was to eat as much food as physically possible during the day before having any alcohol at night. The original plan for the night was that I wanted everyone to come to my house for pre-drinks but as I had just got Maui 4 days before I decided it wouldn’t be the best idea having lots of people in the house all at the same time, so it literally just ended up being me and my friend Mairi having a few wines until my other 2 friends decided last minute to come out too! After that we just kinda met everyone else in town and had the best wee time ever, had a lot of drinks and good time until 3am, went for some food then straight to bed! (get you a man who will peel off those false lashes).
The day itself was pretty chill compared to the rest of the week. Sophia had begged to stay at her Nana’s the night before so I got ready and Ruairi took me to the shops to meet them where my Nana was getting in all her shopping, we headed back to hers for some lunch and to spend some time with Sophia before going off to Ruairi’s mums house for a little chat and a drink. We went to the cinema to see Girls Trip which was honestly so funny and then had a little table booked in Chiquito for after.
I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who made this past week the most amazing week ever! I have some of the best friends in the world and I appreciate them all so much! I have had some negative feelings towards this birthday, purely because I’m not where I thought I would be, but I think I need to cut myself some slack and also work harder towards those goals so that hopefully I won’t feel the same next year!
Thanks again for reading!
