Made Me Happy This Week - Birthday Edition!


I've had the best week! It was my birthday on Monday, and as usual Paul made sure I was utterly spoiled! He made me breakfast in bed, I opened presents, and walked downstairs to be met with a room full of balloons. As a surprise, he'd booked the Harry Potter escape room in Edinburgh with three of our friends. We had an hour to escape, and defeat the Dark Lord...I had to stab him at the end! It was so funny, we laughed so much, and we made it out with actual seconds to spare - 41 to be exact! He had then arranged for people to come back to ours for a BBQ for dinner, to make the most of the sunshine. Oh! And I can tell you now, seeing as it didn't go horribly wrong. The cake I made for myself, was a  Golden Snitch, with HUGE wings, because I had to make them accurate in size. I had fears that it was going to end horribly, but it turned out ok in the end. Paul also made me a cake, he made one that looked just like the one Hagrid gave Harry, which I absolutely loved, although very few people got the reference and just though Paul had made a kind of rubbish looking cake. Clearly not Harry Potter Fans!

The next morning we went to the cinema to see Jurassic World, and because it was 11am on a Tuesdays, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was so good, I'm such a fan of those films, and this one did not disappoint. We then had a chilled afternoon, lazed around in the garden and ate leftover BBQ food. Also, more cake. We've eaten so much cake over the last week! On Wednesday we went out to buy plants to brighten up the garden, and make the flower beds feel not so empty. I'm not sure of the names, but we went with purple ones because apparently they're good for Bees. The last two days have been back to normal, but we have fun plans over the weekend, so I'm looking forward to that.

1. That my Snitch cake somehow didn't collapse before it was served.

2. That Paul tried three times to light the candles on my cake, and bring them to me outside. The wind got them before I did, except on the 3rd try when everyone had their hands around flames.

3. My rose gold balloons that are still up in the bedroom.

4. How I'm somehow still not sick of cake. You'd have thought after this week, I'd have sickened myself...but no.

5. The custard tarts that are in Costa at the moment. If you see them, try them! They're so good! They are the famous ones from Lisbon, although I'm sure the ones there are probably better.

6. My little ear cuffs from Paul. I'm too scared to have my ears pierced where I have them sit, so these where the perfect little gifts.

7. Sending our wedding rings off to be engraved, I can't wait to see how they look when they're back.

8. Odette the ostrich, that now lives on our sofa.
