I'm getting old..
Don't be fooled- that's not me, it's the lovely Marilyn, celebrating her birthday with a delightful looking cake. Not as fabulous as the cake HTB provided me with, however. Check it out:
Nom Nom Nom.
For the annual day of realising how old I'm becoming, HTB whisked me off a couple of days early to the beautiful Cliff House Hotel in Waterford. It was gloriously sunny so we sat outside for lunch and drinks and looked out at the sea while we both relaxed and also gradually burnt, I know..tut tut.
Yes, that IS Ireland. Stunning. Later on we ate in the Michelin starred restaurant, had bellinis and helped ourselves to the wine tasting menu.. I can't even explain how amazing it was (I know, I know- I should use my words, but this was just too good to even begin to describe), so I took pictures instead. Behold, the deliciousness (have a cloth ready at your chin in case of drooling):
As if all that wasn't enough, I also awoke to some fabulous presents on my actual birthday, which shall soon be appearing in an incredibly smug "birthday present haul" post. I like present haul posts but that's mostly cause I'm just really nosey.
Being really good to myself, I've also made a few online birthday self gifted purchases, which I shall share when they arrive! Yay!
