What a brilliant birthday!
Woke up late this morning, was brought tea and breakfast in bed, and had a quick bath before being whisked off for my surprise birthday treat at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. We went round on the perimeter bus to have an overview of the site, and stopped off to look at incredible orchids, massive palms and to be overwhelmed by the Victorian architecture of the glasshouses.
Had dinner at the Hive (if anybody has any photos, please send!) with Charlie, Mum, Dad, Andrew, Matthew, Erika T, Erika S, Dan, Theresa, Demetris, Ryan, Kirsten, Alison, and Natalie, Laura W, Nathan and Caroline also came along later. After a lovely meal and some drinks, we pootled back to ours for some lazy drinks, some good Poppy lovin', and some indulgent watching of Simon's Cat.
Such generosity in lovely presents, great to have people join me on what has been a chilled out and fun day.
