My birthday was over two weeks ago now (can you believe August is almost over?!) and I’m a little bit behind with my blog posts! But I just wanted to show you some of the nice things I got for my birthday 🙂 Here’s a few little bits from my parents, they got me a pretty blouse, a floral phone case, a Cath Kidston make up bag, and also a nice big backpack to take to Leeds festival! I also got…

At the weekend, my best friend and I went to Stratford Upon Avon for my birthday. We went last year too, and we decided to go to the same place for afternoon tea, which was at the Grosvenor Hotel. Because we went on a Sunday I thought the whole town would be dead, but it was actually rammed with people!

It was held at our local village church, which is so beautiful and old, and luckily the sun shone down all day. After the church service, we went to the venue we had hired for a buffet lunch and drinks. Yummy cheese, olives, and pizza! Baby Joseph is now 9 months old and…
