My Birthday week!

So I've been completely off the blogging radar for the past week because I've been very busy with attending several birthday surprises! I was treated to an evening at The Crab at Chieveley ( on Wednesday night (my favourite restaurant but is one for those special occasions...)not only that but my two closest friends were there to surprise me on arrival. They had bought me "River Cottage - Everyday", I've been after it for ages, I do love Hugh!

So after a lovely meal and beautiful dessert... back home and straight to bed to be up for work at 5am(!)

Then on Thursday I had the most awful day at work but I had yet another surprise in store, I was instructed to go and have a rest by my darling Manc and then get my gladrags on as were heading into London to The Savoy Theatre to see "Legally Blonde" but little did I know my Mum was already in London and was treating me to dinner at the only burger place I like...."Byron Burger" - (I've never loved burgers but these are to die for, I have the classic with goats cheese..mmmmmmm).

Legally Blonde is an absolutely brilliant show and my Manc enjoyed it as much as me (if not more) and since the show we've been doing our own renditions of the songs from the show which sound just awful but our personal favourite is "oooooohhh my god, oooh my god you guys!"

Back home after midnight again and up for work at 3.20am...suffering..but that wasn't it...back out on Friday night to a local pub where I had lots of friends and family there to surprise me. As you can imagine another late night and a slightly sore at 4am! Writing this I'm not sure how I coped!

Saturday morning got back from work at 7am, packed my bags and off we went oop North to our second home.. Manchester!

Manchester consisted of X factor, chippy tea, Manchester Christmas girl had the most amazing leather stall with lots of one off handbags called "Woodchip Boutique" she even does requests!

...a flying trip to Afflecks Palace and then the Manchester United Megastore...(his idea not mine) to get his Nephew a kit for his second birthday. Then off to his birthday party, lots of party food (no jelly and ice cream though..boooo)

and then more X Factor (Didn't love the fact Matt won, very blah!) then the dreaded drive home where I make my bed up in the passenger's seat and let my darling boyf get us home safely! Home at 2.30am back up for work at 4.30am!

Today I've done nothing except make us a sausage sandwich and it's been bliss. I still love birthdays. Looking forward to the festive season now, jingle bells, jingle bells...! I just love it!

I've got lots of presents to make in the next few days so I'll keep you posted with those.

Much Love, especailly to Tabitha Bluebell @ for recommending me this week in her lastest blog x
