I didn’t die!!!

What a month!

April is always a special month for me, as it’s my birthday. I really love birthdays, it’s the one day a year when it’s all about me (and my older brother, but he’s a boy and doesn’t count :P).

imageThis year I was really celebrating being alive. This may sound extreme to some, but following a recurring dream, where I died in a car accident at 32, I never thought I’d make it. It was always at the back of my mind, and when I broke down on the motorway, I genuinely thought my time was up. I was petrified, but as you can tell by this, I survived! Haha (yes, I can laugh at my stupidity).


Well, being the happy to be alive person I am, I went and threw myself off of Bournemouth pier down the zip wire onto the beach. It was exhilarating, after I combated the fear of climbing the metal staircase that is! The staircase was swaying in the sea breeze, even though it felt like the calmest day.image I wanted to take lots of photos, but even if I wasn’t worried about my phone dropping into the depths of the sea, my hands were shaking so much, I’m not convinced they would be anything other than a blur. Luckily for me, the staff at Rock Reef were able to calm us down and took a photo at the top.image

I couldn’t rate the experience highly enough, I would definitely do it again….and maybe with a Go-Pro camera!

The rest of the month has been a bit calmer. With lots of clothes shopping (thank you Miss Selfridge), following my wardrobe excavation (possibly more came out than initially planned, with the plaster falling off!)image

imageimageLast weekend I went to stay with my friends in Brighton. This usually ends in a severe lack of sleep and stories I couldn’t possibly divulge on here, but this time we decided to take it easy and visit Middle Farm. imageI haven’t been to a petting zoo without a child before, I thought it might be a bit weird, but I got over it! I fed some pigs, saw some cows being milked, chatted to a lama and fell in love with a baby goat.

imageI also saw the ugliest pig in the world, it even had a wooly coat, like a sheep!

imageOnce we’d finished looking at the ugly and the cute, we thought we’d try out the cider tasting. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I love my cider. Some of these were scrumptious, others, like the Chilli cider, knocked me over. I love spice, but not in my drink! I settled on an Elderflower cider from Cambridgeshire. It’s very refreshing and dangerously like squash! (As you can see, there’s not much left)image

This weekend, I did the very grown up thing of gardening. I love flowers, but I’m very impatient and would never dream of spending hours watching a seed grow, I want instant results. So I went to my local garden centre, Cherry Tree Nursery and picked up these beauts:image

imageI would tell you what they are, but I really just chose the ones that looked the prettiest! I did learn that the bushy flowery pink ones are azaleas, depending on how long they last, these are my new favourites 🙂

As the month comes to an end, I’d like to say a huge thank you to all my friends and family that have made this a great month. Special thanks to Charlotte F, as I have realised that you have come out for every birthday meal since I met you. This year we spent it at Burger Shop, where we were treated to a complimentary cocktail and some mouth watering burgers along with fantastic customer service. image

Next week I shall be “relaxing” in Bath for my friend’s hen party.
