I don’t think I have ever felt this content in a long while. Yesterday was my birthday and I had an absolutely lovely day. I’d like to say thank you to everyone who left me birthday messages and tweeted me throughout the day. It was really kind of you to wish me happy birthday. I spent the day at work, not so fun, but then in the evening I had my mum and brother over for some champagne and dinner which was really special. I cooked an awesome vegetarian lasagne thanks to Delia, and the professional guidance of Rob, finished off by a generous helping of affogato!

I now have the rest of the week off work and discovered yesterday that Rob is whisking me off to Brighton for the day tomorrow which couldn’t have been better timed considering the gorgeous weather we are experiencing at the moment. The trip will be punctuated by food (naturally), starting the day with a hearty brunch at the legendary Bill’s and finished off with dinner at the finest vegetarian restaurant I have ever been to, Terre à Terre. I am so excited to wander around the lanes and frolic on the beach! It has been a few years since I visited Brighton so do let me know if there is any particular shop, cafe or attraction you think I should check out whilst I’m there! πŸ™‚

On Friday, I am being treated to a day’s pampering and relaxation at the Lifehouse Spa in Thorpe le Soken, Essex. To say I am excited about my full body massage is an understatement, as I have never had one before. It will be such a treat and I feel extremely lucky. I will definitely let you know what the spa is like and also take some pictures to share with you from our sunny escapades in Brighton.
