Hi everyone! How are you today? Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes yesterday! I had an AMAZING day spent with my family and friends. It started out with a surprise trip where my sister let me choose four pet fish and we got a tank and supplies 😆 (the paper bag that was holding one of the plastic bags of fish burst when we were looking for stuff and we thought we’d lost them! 🙈😂) I named them Coraline, Bagginses, Lemonhope and Terence! (Although my sister keeps calling him Benjamin because I was thinking of naming him benji 😂) we forgot to ask if they were boys or girls but only Terrence could be annoyed about that so it’s fine 😂 When we got back we set up their new home for them and they seem to be settling in well. I love them so much they are so hypnotizing and relaxing 😂 earlier this year I mentioned to my mum that I would like a fish (and brought a book about them although of course I can’t find it now! 😂) and my sister didn’t even know that I wanted them and came up with the idea herself! Psychic! 😂 We used to have fish but when we moved over here to Ireland we gave them away to family. My family have been asking me if I would want a dog but I don’t feel ready for that since Alex was rehomed earlier this year so I think the fish are a nice change and a way to not feel guilty about a new pet as I still miss Alex a lot.
I then opened presents, all of which I am extremely grateful for 😄 (meaning I got the pointless books by Alfie Deyes I told you I wanted 😂) I was excited to hear that my favourite band, Bastille were releasing a song on my birthday! (Best day for it if you ask me 😂 seeing as they came to Ireland on the exact day of my birthday last year). Later on a family friend arrived (who used to be my tutor) and gave me presents and then took me to see a friend of hers who owns a business and made me a gift (it is so beautiful! 😍 I will tell you what it is soon in another birthday post!), It was such a lovely outing and when I got home I dropped 😂 Being up and busy took a toll on my flare ups and I could feel a bad migraine coming on throughout the day that I still have (this was by far the most eventful day I’ve had in a long time but you know that because I rarely feel the need to do a day in the life! 😂) but the day was not over yet! You see my family and I were going to see a medium! (It was not a present just on the same day 😂)…or at least we planned to go see a medium but we were given the wrong dates written on the tickets so we are going to see a medium next month! 😂 Instead of wasting the journey though we went to a chip shop and I of course avoided ordering fish in respect of my new pets! 🙈😂 When we got home I blew out the candles on the incredible cake my mum made and ate it! 🎂 And then I fell into bed! 😴😂
My sister and I are going to stay in a cottage today (I should be arriving as this post goes up as this is scheduled alongside my next post on Sunday) and we will be staying there for the weekend! 😄 I’m so happy about it (mainly because it has a bench outside that we are planning on sitting out on in the evenings with a mug of hot chocolate! 😋☕). I will definitely remember to take pictures to show you! (UPDATE: HERE is a post I wrote about our stay! 😄💕).
This getting old stuff isn’t bad at all! 😂 (I’m joking…I thought I was old the day I turned 16 so just ignore me! 😂).
Thank you for reading! 😉💗 Take care of yourself and have a lovely day!
