twenty fifth birthday

I am now twenty five, and I must say that I am so far thoroughly enjoying it!  I know, it makes no sense that you can feel differently just because you've gained another year, but I am feeling much more optimistic about everything lately.  Everyone always seems to say how they wish they were still 18 or 21, but I am genuinely happier now than I ever was then.  Twenty Five is the place to be :)

So, I have only just got round to sharing my birthday with you all!  It started off with Steve making me  pancakes with homemade blueberry compote and creme fraiche for breakfast - so yummy and amazing, seriously.  Couldn't finish it all though, quite a lot of food for 7am!  I then unfortunately had to go to work, but wasn't all bad as I work in a Primary school, so I got to go to the front in assembly and everyone sang Happy Birthday to me!

In the evening, myself and some friends went to Barceloneta, a Tapas restaurant in Leicester, which also happens to be my favourite.  It is just amazing, if you live in Leicester and have never been, I urge you to go!  I was also lucky enough to have had a spectacular cake made by my friend Ivona, feast your eyes on this...

Also, here are some of the much loved presents that I received, I am one lucky lady!  I've also included some photographs of some of my cards - lovely handmade wonderful-ness :)
Babushka measuring cups
I also received some Topshop vouchers, which I am trying to spend wisely...
but I did buy a cape that I have wanted for a while, and it was in the sale - hoorah!
