Celebrating 1st Birthdays

We stayed at Daves parents last night as we went to friends to watch a film. It was nice being able to sleep in until I needed to get out of bed. With his parents being considerate about how much noise they produced so not to wake us up.

We did need to get out of bed as it was my nieces 1st birthday party. Maybe its because I don’t have kids but I’m not understanding going all out for the 1st birthday.

But being positive and celebrating the good things in life is a way of doing that. So I suppose celebrating her birthday is good all round for those around her.

Even though she may not have the memory of the party, having those good feelings and vibes around her is a good thing for her. Looking at it that way a 1st birthday should be celebrated.

The rest of the day I was able to change the bad feelings I’ve been holding onto into the good. Reading The Secret was a help to that.

A Wedding

Today was my mates, sisters wedding. It was a gorgeous ceremony. The wedding breakfast was lovely. I was in some official photos as well which I didn’t expect but I like the idea of all the ceremony guests having a photo together.

We then had a break before the evening part. A group of us went to the hotel rooms that they’d booked. At one point myself and a friends girlfriend got stuck with a load of kids. Luckily we played games that occupied them.

I did feel sorry for the bride and groom for the evening part though. Majority of the day people had left and all friends that were invited for the evening part didn’t turn up. It ended up being 10-15 of us filling up the dance floor. Making use of the DJ.

Even so, it was fun. It tired me out but fun. I was ready for bed when I got home.

Wedding Venue Reserved

We’ve reserved our venue for our wedding. Which also means we’ve selected a date. On my dreams list, I’ve put to be married in 2021. As it happens we’re gonna be getting married in 2020!

In less then two years time I’ll be a wife.

I’m excited but there’s a lot to do and to pay for.

First step we need to book a provisional date/time for the registrar to ensure we can get someone to marry us on the day we have selected with the venue. It’s gonna cost us £30 to get the povisional date and time booked.

Second step is to pay the deposit for the venue. It’s gonna got us £500 for the deposit. We saw the venue today for the second time, this time the coordinator showing us round and talking us through things.

We’ve told a select few our date for the wedding. It’s been happiness all round.

Steps Concert

It was the girls night out this evening. Myself, my mum, B and her mum we went to see Steps!

I’ve always liked Steps. I grow up with their music. Even saw them when I was a kid in concert. All I remember about that was H flying around on a big letter H.

We all had a good night. We had a good seat. I believe no matter where you were in the seating area you could see the stage perfectly.

I’ve been more mindful and enjoying the experiences I’ve had this week. It’s been great taking it all in rather than having my phone in between me and where I’m at.

Happy Birthday Dave

We got up and ready to go to his birthday surprise. He was surprised and happy when he found out he would be driving a tank. He absolutely enjoyed his self.

I was able to be a passenger in the tank. I’m glad I did. I don’t think I would have enjoyed myself if I just waited for Dave to finish. He loved it which is the main thing. I think I’ve given myself the hard task of beating the present giving.

After the tank driving experience, we went to Kirkby Hall, an English Heritage place. It was nice to see both ruin and rooms to look in. Plus there were lovely Peacocks roaming around. One even decided to claim the gate entrance.

We decided to drive home but if we saw anything we’d stop to have a look. I saw a sign for Priest House, a National Trust Property. We stopped to look on the outside of the home. Even if we saw inside we’d only been an extra few minutes.

We carried on our journey home, seeing another National Trust sign. We turned off the motorway to Woolsthrope Manor, the birthplace and home of Sir Issac Newton. His place was beautiful, getting to see the Apple tree. What I liked about the place was the science centre and film. It gave the place an extra something.

We weren’t on the road much longer till we stopped at Grantham. We walked around the town and picked up lunch. Deciding then we’ll drive all the way home.

I was glad for that, in the end, I was getting tired. Once home, I rested, leaving Dave to play on his game console. The rest gave me a boost for doing to his parents, having a catch-up and a few friends over for dinner, B and D.

They have decided on the wedding venue and date. They’ve brought it forward a year. We now have 2 weddings to attend in 2019. I’m excited. It’s been a long, but great day.

Happy Birthday, my love, until next year ❤

Demi Lovato Concert

OMG! What a night!

I’ve laughed, cried, danced and sang my heart out. All thanks to Demi Lovato concert in Manchester with my best mate, E.

I’ll be surprised if I have a voice in the morning. But it was worth it. I’d do it all again.

Below is all the photos I took, as I wanted to be in the moment, enjoy every moment of it.

I 100% did.

When she’s next back in town, I’d love to go again.
