It was my birthday this week and I was 28- again, obvs.
Any how, after a not so good start to 2016 and mostly drama after that my beloved had arranged a surprise for me.
I have been so poorly the last few weeks with the dreaded man flu that I hadn’t really thought about my birthday.
So the day started with me waking up sneezing and coughing, which has been pretty standard with this virus. I was presented with a big box of presents by my beloved which was nice. However when I started opening them, I was to be honest confused and disappointed. Turns out he had bought me a ‘mystery box’ from groupon. Apparently some of them have iPads in…. This one didn’t.
Before you decide that I am ungrateful, I would like to point out that the items in the mystery box were items that we already own. I simply hate wasting money.
I went to the hair dressers in a bit of a grump. A few years ago he pulled the groupon number on my birthday, it was even worse then the mystery box. The boy just loves a bargain.
There was still hope though, as he was still taking me out for lunch. I went home with my new hair and we had a cup of tea.
He told me that the mystery box was a joke (thank god) and my real present was…..
A NIGHT OVER IN ST DAVIDS HOTEL AND SPA IN CARDIFF BAY WITH TREATMENTS AND AFTERNOON TEA!!
I couldn’t believe it! He’s not very romantic and this was such a huge shock!
He’d even arranged pet care for our fur babies!!
So off we went to the very beautiful hotel, and had the best massage in ages. I felt like Mr Soft!!
I can not explain easily how delicious, luxurious and throughly enjoyable my birthday was. So I will let the pictures do the talking for me.
Next was afternoon tea. It was simply delicious…
The boy had gone all out! I couldn’t believe it!
St Davids also sent up a little message…
There was one more surprise..
It was such a wonderful day, I’m stil in shock that he managed to pull it all off without me finding out!
I loved every second of it and didn’t want to leave the hotel!
I mean, look….
I have so so SO much to be grateful for in my life – my beloved and my absolutely amazing friends mean so much to me.
Take some you time and enjoy life.
