I had been keeping Alex’s birthday present a secret for a while, getting really excited myself without being able to share what I was getting excited about. This year we decided to do experiences rather than buying presents, and I wanted to go all out. He spoilt me for my birthday and aswell as doing the same for him, I wanted us to have an amazing time… …so I booked a 3 day trip to Amseterdam! Am I crazy?! Perhaps a little. I know this is quite an over the top gift, but as we weren’t going away this year for a proper holiday this seemed the perfect time to make the most of the time off and go for a city break together.

Over Easter Alex and I travelled back to my parents for a couple lovely days. We had dinner altogether, watched films, walked the dogs and went walking up Bredon Hill.

I thought I’d add a new section to my blog to give you all something to make you giggle. I know I’m not exactly a country girl, was more a town-girl although did I spend much of my time growing up in the countryside. I do now class myself as a city girl but I sometimes do come out with something silly – a case of speaking before thinking! Alex on the other hand, is definitely a city boy – born and raised! Being in the countryside with him is hilarious. This new section is to share some of the funniest and perhaps embarrassing things which are said between us in our daily lives. For your amusement, and for me to be able to look…
