If your going to celebrate you might as well go all in.
I love a Birthday, a chance to have fun, eat lots of good food & spend time with your favourite people.
& being a twin I’ve always enjoyed having someone to share the special day with.
Even though I’m not quite sure how I am now a 27 year old person, (Like, I was at sixth form yesterday wasn’t I!?!) Where did that time go!?!
But, a lot of great things have been achieved since then so why not celebrate another year of living life ✌🏻
So how did we celebrate? Here’s how…
Friday 11th May
On Friday evening we met up with our friends for a meal together. It was great to see everyone as it’s much harder for us all to get together now a days.
Nandos was of course our choice of restaurant, you can’t beat a cheeky Nandos.
Me & my twin sister Sarah have the same group of friends from school, so that makes it alot easier too.
Saturday 12th May
We started off with our usual Saturday morning tradition, Parkrun.
A 5k course around our local park. Crazy you might think but, it was a perfect way to start the birthday weekend of indulgence. I didn’t feel as guilty knowing I’d done my run for the day.
We went our separate ways to freshen up after the run and then ‘re grouped’ at mum & dad’s for a family birthday breakfast brunch.
I honestly don’t know why we have never done this before, because let’s be real, breakfast food is the best food.
It was good fun getting together, enjoying some yummy food and opening some pressies. We even had birthday cupcakes with candles.
We then spent the rest of the day chilling out and then me and Tim got ready for the evening.
Tim’s work friend had invited us along to her wedding reception so this is how we spent the evening.
It was a BEAUTIFUL setting and the flowers & fairy lights were so pretty. Love a wedding.
Sunday 13th May
We had booked ourselves in for an Escape room experience for Sunday so me, Tim, Sarah and her husband Dan went off to the Escape Room in Colchester. We booked the ‘Witchcraft & Wizardry’ escape room for us to attempt as me and Sarah are big fans of Harry Potter (Don’t think Ive mentioned that before… haha)
One room, One hour…
It was really good fun and WE MADE IT OUT!! With 7 minutes to spare.
In the evening we had our traditional family birthday meal.
We chose Byron Burger as the location (Second year running!) and it didn’t disappoint. We had a feast, it was sooooo good, especially their new Halloumi fries.
Here’s what I had…
●Clucky chicken burger
● French fries
● Me & Tim shared Halloumi fries & Chicken nuggets
● Banana milkshake
Once we had all finished we headed back to mine and Tim’s to have cake!
Tim chose the cake for us 😂 A Paw Patrol traybake.
It was a great birthday and lots of fun was had.
I’m going to do a part 2: ‘What I got for my birthday’ so keep your eyes peeled for that 👀
Until next year,
