The last time I was bothered about getting older was when I turned 21.
Something about entering my early twenties freaked me out and now my late twenties are doing the exact same job. Much to my surprise however, it was my best birthday yet. Surrounded by the people I love was the best present I could ever have asked for and I felt very grateful today, despite being really quite hungover.
Ryan kicked off the celebrations by giving me my present before the party and I was a little overwhelmed to say the least. I had been banging on about saving for a camera for such a long time and he (unbelievably) took it upon himself to get me one- it’s definitely one of the best presents I’ve ever received!
Once I’d wiped away my tears of ABSOLUTE JOY, I got dressed and poured myself a G&T. We ate pizza and drank
some too much prosecco before heading out to Tooting and then back again for drunken yoga moves and cheeseburgers. Here are a bunch of my favourites…
Check out the cupcakes that my friend Helen made for me…
… and some of the presents my friends gave me…
I woke up this morning and gorged on cupcakes in bed before lounging around and working off my hangover whilst Ryan cleaned the flat.
Mum and dad kindly came and picked us up late afternoon to enjoy a curry and open some more presents at home with the whole family.
The best birthday yet! Here’s to being 26!
