Harry Potter Studio Tour – Leavesden Studios

Last Friday was my best friend Abi’s birthday, so we arranged a trip down to London for me, her and her sister Hannah. We decided to go to the Harry Potter Studio tour, and it was simply amazing! It’s at the actual studios where Harry Potter was filmed and has loads of original props, sets and costumes to look at. I was enthralled with how cool it all was, walking around the sets that they actually used for the films. I’ve just...

No, I’m not married!

For my birthday this weekend, I went on holiday with Cameron to Whitehaven. It’s a lovely place in the lake district right next to the sea. We stayed at a Premier Inn again which was pretty nice (even if the restaurant was a bit disappointing), but it was awesome to get away for a few days – and to be spoilt by Cameron all day on my birthday! On the Sunday, we decided to drive up to Scotland and we found a shopping village in Gretna...

Happy Birthdays!

It was my little sister Vicky’s birthday this week, except she’s not so little anymore – it was her 21st birthday. She’s had a few days of celebrating, it started on Wednesday night in Sheffield with a big party – I think she’s still recovering from the effects of that now! It was also my Grandma’s birthday on Wednesday, so on Thursday I went out for a meal with Vicky, Frank, my Grandma and Uncle...

Happy Birthday Frank!

Happy Birthday to my little brother Frank, who is 18 today! For his birthday, he decided that he wanted to go out for a meal, so we went to the Hitching Post in Idle. Frank decided that as it was his birthday, he could finish it off with the biggest dessert on the menu – a chocolate fudge sundae. It doesn’t sound like much, but it was huge – it even came with 4 spoons. Needless to say, he polished off the lot. I didn’t...

Feeling Old…

Friday was my 22nd birthday – starting to feel old now! They say 21 is when you are a ‘fully fledged adult’, so I guess now I’m 22 I’ll have to grow up a bit! The first sign that I am getting old was when one of the players in the All-Star game on Wednesday was younger than I am (Starlin Castro for the Cubs – born in 1990). Anyway, I had a great birthday. Vicky came home from Sheffield for the weekend and made...

21st Birthday!

It was my birthday on Thursday, and it was ace. I was working, so I didn’t get to see my family until the evening, but I had a really good day. I went out for a quick drink with Mike at lunchtime, and when I got back there was a huge bunch of flowers and a card on my desk from everyone at work. The flowers are gorgeous, and a brilliant surprise. I had them on my passenger seat on the way home from work, and everytime I looked out my...

Cake

As it’s 9 days until my 21st birthday, I thought I’d post a couple of pics of the best birthday cakes I’ve had. My favourite one when I was younger was pink ballet shoes that my dad made, but recently, I’ve had two ace cakes. First was on my 16th birthday, and my best friend made it for me. Then there was the cake that my family made me for me 20th birthday last year. This is my all time favourite cake, and I still have...

I Love July!

I’ve always loved July. not just because it’s my birthday month, but because it was always the month that we broke up for the holidays, so it was always the start of summer. Not only is it my birthday, it’s my best friend’s birthday, my brother’s birthday and my Aunt’s birthday. So I woke up on the first of July and I knew it was going to be a good month. 6 days in and I already know I was right. Waddington...
