Last Wednesday, January 24th 2018 I turned 23. In 2017 I read an article stating that 23 is supposed to be one of the happiest years of your life. I hope this is true and the next 365 days bring lots of excitement and happy memories for me.
If I’m being honest I wasn’t overly excited for this birthday. It was the first one without Tango (who recently had to be put down) and I’m still finding it hard without her. Despite not being able to celebrate with Tango and cuddle her I knew she would still be with me throughout the day.
I didn’t make any special plans. Both my boyfriend and I were working and I didn’t get to see him until Thursday night because he works evenings. I did decide I wanted to have some treats and after I finished work on Wednesday I bought a six pack of donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts and mum and I had fish and chips for dinner.
On the Friday, (January 26th) my boyfriend and I went to the cinema to see The Post and afterwards we got Dominos. The pizza and garlic bread was SO GOOD!
It’s a tradition on Chanelle Hayley to share a post about my birthday with plenty of pictures so here it is!
I had a sponge cake. The unfilled sponge, cream and strawberry jam were bought on Tuesday and my mum made the cake on Tuesday night. I had cake for breakfast on Wednesday.
I don’t often have donuts and wanted to treat myself. Flavours left to right, top to bottom: Vanilla Frosted, Bavarian Kreme – my favourite – (x2), Strawberry Frosted, French Cruller and Cinnamon.
