A day trip

We ate so much the other day at my brothers 19th birthday, that the thought even now fills me up! We decided to head out to a little country pub for a meal during the day and then in the evening saul ventured out to meet up with my brothers who were working in town. 
Its always nice to get to spend time with my family, even if it is only for a day or two doing something special, i decided to wear my new Asos sweet heart neckline dress that i will be packing up with me to wear in paris, I was a little worried that it was too low cut so i decided it best to wear a little top below as it was probably for the best, i also avoided any spillages onto the dress which i was really proud of anyone who knows me will tell you just how clumsy i actually am. 
Birthday cakes in my house are always something that we look forward to seeing and especially to eating, So when mum asked Eileen of St Jude Cupcakes to make Saul's 19th birthday cake we just fell in love with how wonderful the cake was, it is all hand made and amazing and it tasted lovely. Can i just quickly mention how adorable St Jude Cupcakes Ice cream van is where they sell the cakes from. 
Saul said he had a wonderful day which is always lovely to hear, we have had a pretty good weekend in the masters house lots of laughing and eating my two favourite things to do. So all thats left for me to do this weekend is planning out some jewellery for a photoshoot on Tuesday and create some illustrations....so i best get going on all that.
