My birthday is actually tomorrow, Monday, but seeing that it is a Monday and actually I and Ben have to work we decided to do a little something nice over the weekend instead. We were due to go camping with friends but their little one was poorly so we decided a cold night in a tent would be no fun at all.... So last minute we decided just to take a drive 5 minutes to Devils Dyke for a walk. We are super lucky that where we live we have the sea below us and the Sussex Downs behind us, all within a very short reach. The weather was perfect for a walk, not too hot and no rain. Stanley enjoys being in his back pack so off we set with the promise of a cream tea at Saddlescombe Farm!

So then Monday I turn 34. THIRTY FOUR!!! How did I get to be so old?! This birthday has come round so quickly. I also feel that I don't need to celebrate it so much anymore, maybe a baby does that to you. I'm sure Christmas this year will be the same. I'm excited about Christmas for Stanley, not for me. Anyway we have good friends popping in for cake this afternoon, and that will be enough for me. Maybe I'll feel different when I hit the grand old age of 40, I think I'll want a huge party then! But for now, tea and cake and friends suits me just fine.

Hope you all had lovely weekends.
