A birthday recap!



We spent my birthday eating non-stop, which is my favourite way to spend a birthday. Or any day, really. It began with brunch at Bill’s (I had bubble and squeak along with eggs and sausage and bacon, which was totally amazing) and then moved on to cake at Jason’s Mum’s house, and finished up with steak at Cau in the evening. The steaks were good, but nowhere near as good as the tempura fried belly pork we had as a starter, and the dulce de leche cornflake sundae I ate for dessert. Ohhh man. I met up with Tania, Freya and Lizzie last night for drinks and dinner in London (more on that later!) and when I was telling them about that belly pork, an actual hush fell over the table as we all thought about the fabulousness of belly pork fried in the lightest of batters, served with spicy ketchup. Those girls and I- our friendship is built on the basis of a shared love for really, really great food :)

So, 23! It feels pretty great so far, I can’t tell a lie. I’ve decided that 23 is going to be the year I become a Very Organised Woman. I’m going to always have stamps in my purse. And blister plasters in my handbag. Never wash one white sock in with a dark load of laundry and dye it a horrible grey colour. Always brush my hair. Do the dusting before it gets so bad you could write your name in it on the television. Carry a diary around with me with all my dates and meetings and engagements in it, instead of attempting to remember them all and forgetting half of them. Keep a birthday book, and always send out birthday cards to friends and family in good time. Get ready for a serious transformation, my friends! I’m about to get all kinds of organised and mature, just you wait and see!

    “…going to be the year I become a Very Organised Woman” this is the story of my life. I’ve just turned 24 and I’m an organisational train wreck. Maybe when I’m 25…

    Looks like you had a wonderful time!
