Birthday Instagram

A few of my presents | Sunny skies | CCO
Las Iguanas to celebrate with my boyfriend | At the restaurant | My OH
OCC Haul | Birthday nibbles | Late night reading on my new Kindle

It was my birthday yesterday, and I turned 24 *updates blogger and twitter profile*. I didnt do much on the day as I have soooo much work to do :( 
I ended up trekking into London to buy a ten tonne of fabric, but I did get to spend some of it with family which was nice. 
Its also my boyfriends birthday tomorrow, so at the weekend we went to Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth for the day, and went to our favourite restaurant to celebrate. 
-Seriously, you all need to get yourselves down to a Las Iguanas and try the xin xim, it is amazing!

I loved all my gifts, but I was so happy to see I got a kindle! I've wanted one of these for far too long.
I love reading, but haven't picked up a book in so long because of studies, so this will be the perfect thing to get me back into it. Also with my back problems it means I wont be weighed down by carrying anything heavy. On my list of books to read are "The Hunger Games" trilogy, "The Uglies" quartet, and "A Game of Thrones" series. Currently working my way through the beast that is "Great Expectations" first (down to a deal I made with my boyfriend to bribe him into reading), so it looks like I'm going to be busy!

  5. Thank you, the food was amazing. I love Gunwharf, the only problem is my boyfriend is going to be moving back to
    Portsmouth in September, so I'll probably end up there a lot with my lack of funds or willpower lol xx
