If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.
I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.
Once again I’d like to thank everyone for the flowers, cards, FB messages, phone calls, SMS messages, blog comments, presents and for being there. You’ve all made my birthday super special and given me an amazing start to the new year.
Your love means everything to me.
I have to respect people’s privacy but here some pictures of the people who I know won’t mind.
Here is one pic from the party, the only one posted on Facebook by Dina. I was so busy being the host I didn’t have time to snap pictures or selfies. I can’t even believe I don’t have one single selfie from the party. That’s crazy! But, I do have a bunch of professional pictures that I’m going through at the moment!
Love weekends like the one I’ve had. Minus the fact that I didn’t fall asleep until 4AM this morning.
The weekend officially started when Dina arrived. I picked her up at the station around 9.15PM. We went to get some food and then headed back to my house. Popped a bottle of white wine and just sat around until 1AM talking about everything. Saturday morning we woke up around 9AM and had a wonderful breakfast together and then worked the rest of the day. Later in the afternoon we headed to a soccer game, it was pouring down rain but we were good sports and stayed for the entire game. After that it was time for a bit to eat. Went home and chilled for a bit before changing and going back into town for dinner. Came home around 11.30PM but didn’t go to bed until 2AM. Sunday was a morning full of work and then I headed for lunch at Ami’s house. Came home much later than I had planned on and then sat down to do some more work. Around midnight I was super tired but wanted to finish and once I did I wasn’t tired anymore. Ended up staying up till 4AM…and then I fell asleep. When my alarm went off at 6.45 there was no way I was getting up. Went back to sleep and got up at 8.45, got ready and headed to work then…
Last night before going to my 6PM dinner meeting I stopped by my grandparents house for a bit. Dropped som stuff off and then went to do some shopping. Met up with J and in the middle of our meeting A stopped by. He just wanted to say Hi and as he was leaving Ami arrived. We had a bite to eat and some desert while chatting up a storm. Later Nejra and her friend Jade from Italy joined up. We stayed there until after 9PM. Fun times, fun timed indeed.
