The Grand Finale

It is possible to be too relaxed! After our day at the spa we were pretty much ready to pass out and call it a night. Normally we probably would, but not tonight. We were going to make it out for a second night in a row and party until the early hours!

So we pulled ourselves together, popped open a bottle of prosecco and turned the music up!

The girls had a vague plan for the evening but left the final decision with me. We were going to start off with some cocktails up at Manchester House but we got carried away at home and didn’t leave until quite late, so we skipped the cocktails and went straight to Menagerie.

It was so much fun.

We arrived a bit too late for all the acrobatic entertainment but everyone was loving life dancing up on the platform…so we joined them!


The music was so good and we danced the night away.

We gave in to sore feet….and well the fact it was kicking out time!

I was left with a pretty major headache the next day. One that even brunch couldn’t cure..I guess getting old is going to be tough!!

It was such a wonderful weekend and I wish I could relive it all over again!


These posts have been very hard to write. I really wanted to write about my birthday and document it all as I had such an amazing time, but after everything that happened in the following days I kind of wanted to get it done as soon as possible. I didn’t really know whether it was appropriate to put all these pictures up, but then at the end of the day I’m not going to deny it happened and I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t have a good time because I really did and I really was incredibly happy.

I guess it’s all a bit bitter sweet.

When I look back on what was the perfect weekend I can’t help but start to overthink everything. Where did it all go wrong? Should I have seen it coming? Could I have changed anything? I felt so lucky and so content at so many times throughout the weekend. I was surrounded by so many people who I loved. Fast forward a couple of days and I feel like my life has been completely shaken up and everything has changed.

Change is scary and break ups are hard but they’re a part of life and they bring you to where you are supposed to be. It’s all a bit raw so I can’t say I’m completely embracing it right now, but I’m sure I will. It’s just going to take a bit of time.

Here’s to the next 25 years…
