My 24th birthday

Happy Birthday to me! I am one year older (totaling 24 year here).

My birthday was sooo lovely, an incredible birthday to remember always.

I woke up in the morning and started getting ready to go to work. As I was brushing my teeth and combing (sorta) my hair I realized that Phil had been missing for some minutes. I went downstairs to find him and found him I did! He was making me breakfast for my birthday! Eggs and toast. Mmmm!

He packed my lunch and left me a note which I found later at lunchtime. He is so sweet and makes me feel so special.

I got to go home from work early and was able to relax. I knitted and watched a few episodes of Battlestar Gallactica (don't judge me). Phil's mum came upstairs and asked if I wanted to go along with her to the grocery store and to the chocolate factory. With the mention of chocolate I threw down my knitting and was ready to go.

Little did I know, that Phil had rigged the whole thing to get me out of the house to set up my birthday surprise!

More on my birthday surprise later ;)

That evening, me and Phil went on a date and he took me to an incredible Indian restaurant. We got the most gorgeous chicken tikka masala curry with a bowl of basmati rice, garlic naan, and mango lassi's. ngfhs;jlfskadhjadfh It was amazing.

It was so fun to dress up and go on a date with Mr. van der Wel. I did my hair and wore my favorite necklace that he bought for me awhile back.

Yum! Mango lassi's!

The birthday girl

Phil looks unimpressed in this photo, but his moustache is amazing.


Sorry folks about the poor quality of the photos. I didn't bring my camera (doh!) and just had the cell phone handy.

Thank you everybody for all the birthday love!!
