Philly's Birthday

Yesterday was Philly's 19th birthday - it's too far to visit her at Uni in a day so we meet in Gloucester for a few hours. It's about half way; Philly travelled by train and we drove down.

I had baked some cupcakes and a chocolate Guinness cake. I bought some cake boxes from Tesco and a small shopping bag for her to put all her gifts in - I liked the bag so much I'm thinking of buying one for myself now :-)

We had a great meal in Gloucester - Philly loved her gifts. She also had a good time doing a bit 'more' retail therapy as you can see from all her bags.

All too quickly she had to get the train back but had a wonderful surprise when she got back to Uni - her flatmates had cooked and iced her a birthday cake - they are a lovely bunch :-)

I settled on the sofa and did a little more on my LHN A Place We Call Home

It's half term this week which feels good; I have a few jobs to do at Dad's and we're popping to France next weekend so it won't be much of a rest, still very very enjoyable though.
