With my birthday being on a Monday this year and my husband on a course and therefore not able to take the day off work, we instead had a day out in Norwich the Friday before. I picked out a few presents, got Poppy some gorgeous bits in the last of the sales and we also had fika at Biddy's tearoom. Here you can see what we ordered. The portions are generous, the food delicious, the prices very reasonable and the staff were really friendly. I can't recommend going there enough if you are visiting Norwich.
On my actual birthday, Poppy and I went out for lunch although she wasn't feeling too good. I later had my hair cut which was nice to have done on my birthday. After she woke from her nap though, Poppy was feeling worse so we cancelled going out for dinner. Usually dinner out gets cancelled due to being snowed in, but the weather has been pretty mild again this winter.
Luckily I have really lovely friends who popped round with presents, flowers and a homemade cake to ensure I still had a lovely day. It was so thoughtful! The day was topped off with a takeaway from the Thai restaurant we were supposed to be going to, so all in all I had a lovely day! I just did not enjoy being a year older this year, I'm getting a bit too close to 30 now for my liking!
