I took a bit of a break from blogging over the weekend, mainly because I was celebrating my birthday. Well, technically my birthday is today, but because today is a Monday, I celebrated yesterday instead.
I didn’t want a big party or anything this year. After all, I’m only turning 27, so nothing major. I wanted to have a quiet one with just me and Jeremy. I got that wish. Unfortunately the day started out a bit poorly. I managed to lock the keys in the car, and had to get Jeremy to take the bus into town to come help me out. This meant that we didn’t have lunch until almost 3pm. I was so hungry by that time. We had fish burgers from Blue Island Seafood in Moera. So yummy.
After lunch Jeremy took me shopping at Queensgate. That was certainly unexpected seeing as he already helped me pay for part of my new iPhone, but he bought me a dress. Best boyfriend ever!
After the shopping, we went to see a movie. My choice of course, haha. I picked ‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’. Jeremy wasn’t too ecstatic about the choice, but hey, it was my birthday! I actually really enjoyed the movie, while Jeremy came out of it annoyed at the fact that movies always need to be trilogies or similar these days. He would prefer that they stick to one movie.
I on the other hand quite liked the movie. It wasn’t amazing or anything, but it kept me excited throughout the movie, even though I was feeling quite exhausted (I was at the gym earlier that morning and that tired me out a bit, plus the shopping made me a bit tired too).
After the movie we headed straight back to town, because I wanted to go to Strawberry Fare. For those of you that don’t know Strawberry Fare, it’s a dessert restaurant (well, it’s a restaurant, but they mainly do desserts). I was craving a Crème Brulee, so that’s exactly what I ordered.
Jeremy was keen on a ‘Chocolate Madness’, but was told they had sold out. I would have thought they would have heaps of chocolate around, but apparently not. So he ended up ordering a Black Forest Tower instead. I really struggled with finishing my dessert. I’ve been trying to stay away from sugar as much as possible lately, so I can’t eat as much of it any more because it just gets too much.
It was a lovely day. Today is my actual birthday, but I have to work. Jeremy is taking me out for lunch. Not sure where at this stage, but fingers crossed I can enjoy lunch fully and and still be back in time for when my break ends. Working in Customer Service means that your breaks are very strict, which is always frustrating if you want to do something during your lunch.
How do you usually celebrate your birthday? 🙂
