My 23rd birthday has to certainly be up there with one of the best I have ever had. I am such a planner and usually plan what I am going to do and see. Well my boyfriend had other ideas and I sort of left the day up to him.
I'm glad I did.
I was spoilt rotten and not just by him but by all my friends/family. I got an awesome new digital camera from my parents. A cute little purse from my siblings, lots of jewellery and new music/dvd's! I was very lucky.
On the day Simon woke me up with a beautiful Swarovski necklace. I love Swarovski but a lot of their stuff I cannot afford so I was totally STOKED when I opened it. I didn't expect anything else and boy was I wrong!
I love the theatre and ever since it came out last month I have wanted to see Matilda: The Musical (and Shrek, Jersey Boys...etc). I have heard from tonnes of people how every show is sold out and you have to book in advance. So when I opened the card he got me, to see Matilda tickets was the best!!! We spent the day in London. We went to the Science museum as they have a new psychology/biology exhibition I have wanted to see. Afterwards we went for a walk to Hyde Park (I guess the equivalent to NYC Central Park). It has been snowing down south here so it was nice to walk in it. I even tested out my new camera and it's functions!
After our walk we went for dinner in Covent Garden and had noodles. It's my favourite Chinese food and it was SO yummy!!!! Then we headed to the best part of the day.
Matilda was one of my favourite books when I was little and I grew up on Roald Dahl books. He had an exquisite imagination and this production totally brought it to life. It was funny, sad, had great music and the kids in it were so talented!
I cannot thank this guy enough for making my birthday so enjoyable. And the birthday celebrations continue. I have a meal out with my school friends tonight and celebrating my sister's birthday tomorrow. It will be her last birthday before she becomes a Mummy in 8 weeks!
Have a great weekend!
