Sarah Betty’s Very Fashionable Birthday

Last month was my birthday and I tried to drag it out over the whole week. Mainly because there are always so many people to see!

It’s been a beautiful time and this is belated, but this is what it involved:

Betty’s Tea House in York with my mum:

This is a great place to go if you love afternoon tea. We celebrated with champagne, as I also found out I had got a new job which I was very happy about!

Birthday breakfast from my lovely boyfriend:
There’s no better way to wake up than with Belgian chocolate on waffles with raspberries!

Great gifts!
I had a few of my little dreams come true this birthday, and received this gorgeous Sony pink Vaio, as I really needed a new computer. And my boyfriend got me….wait for it… A FLYING LESSON. I, dear readers will be flying my very own plane. Scared doesn’t even cover it.

Getting my hair did at Burlingtons, Oxford Circus
The lovely ladies at Burlingtons did a beautiful job on my hair and even surprised me with a glass of Champagne. I highly recommend going here.

Meeting my best friend for lunch 
My very best friend Patricia met me and we went for lunch at The Diner, which has always been our little place.

She got me this gorgeous china teacup, which I then poured my coke into (as you do). I have ALWAYS wanted a china teacup!

Cake at work:
The girls at my old work very cutely got me a gorgeous cake which we all quickly devoured. There was also a lot of Percy Pigs!

Birthday cake! Yum!

Then on Friday, a party with my friends!
I found the very weird and wonderful Piccadilly Institute, which has a lot of different themed rooms. We were in The Clinic, which has plastic bodies attached to the roof and we also had doctor’s outfits to wear. It’s well worth booking an event here – had the best time!

So that was it really. Thanks so much for all of your birthday wishes last month, I really appreciate it.

    If you love china cups, you'll love the ones they have in Lakeland at the moment- I saw them when I went in the other day. They're pink with lovely painted birds. I can't find a link though. :(

    Sounds like an amazing birthday week, and am jealous of your visit to Betty's….its on my list of places to go!

    Really like the tea-cup….I keep thinking I need to start drinking out of china cups only, is it me or does it taste better?

    Also Percy Pigs rule. Fact.

    Wow, it looks like you had a wonderful day!

    Happy birthday :-)
    I love Piccadilly Institute – although Fruit Box is the only room that doesn't freak me out!!
