12 months ago I was in hopsital having surgery that turned out to be to remove the evilness from my small bowel. 12 months ago I was given a special pink gown to wear for the day as I was to spend my birthday in hospital. Rubbish.
Never again. This year I decided as I had the fortune (!) not to be hospitalised, and for my birthday to be over Easter, to enjoy a 4 day celebration! I am also in the position now that few will understand - that every birthday that I reach is a good thing - another milestone. If (when) I get there - my 40th is going to be bloody massive!
Started with an amazing day at The Making of Harry Potter at Warner Brother Studios, Leavesden. As a massive Harry Potter fan this was an awesome day - and actually rather emotional. I suspect due to HP being a part of my life for the last 10 years and there I was actually IN the Great Hall, and on Diagon Alley. Wow. I naturally had to purchase a few souvenirs including Snape's Wand (!!!) and Hermione's magic bag from the Deathly Hallows films - bit disappointed that I don't seem to be able to store a tent in there.
Much excitement and merriment was had in the evening when celebrated my birthday with my soon to be neighbour! Lots of cocktails and giggles!
A bit of civilisation was had with a spot of Afternoon tea at Cliveden House on Easter Sunday. Yum. That is all.
And finally today - a wet and windy day in Brighton buying new shoes!
Anyway. So that's where we are. Ooh I am adopting 2 sock monkeys from the wonderful Monkey and Squidge. Now that I am excited about.
