Birthday weekend...

No crafting this week has been accomplished, but its been my birthday weekend! And I hit the big 40!!

Friday morning started with a trip to a new local cafe, where we had breakfast.

I even got a candle in my croissant!

I had some beautiful pressies to unwrap!

I was given a wonderful stash of gifts!

And some amazing soft, cosy, comfy DM's

We had a lovely autumnal walk, kicking through the leaves in my new boots! 

For lunch, a simple but my favourite sandwhich, 'cheese + pickle'

Followed by a yummy chocolate muffin!

We got ready to go out in the evening

A local Italian restaurant that we hadn't tried before.

I chose a starter of Breaded Mozzarella, in a tomato sauce.

For my main course I had Ricotta + Spinach Raviolli, in Brie, cream and sun-dried tomato sauce.

And finished with an Italian chocolate mousse

It was an amazing meal, and I left totally over-full but happy!

On Saturday I got my hair dyed, ready for our joint party in the evening.

We had a great spread, and a disco at a local pub.

The drink flowed, and I boogied the night away.

Despite a poor turn out, we made the best of our night, and had fun!

Sunday was a much needed chill out day, before a week of work commences again!
