Yesterday was was my ‘happy day’ and I sung the happy (birth)day song all day.
I had a lie in until 7 and then had a special birthday breakfast – a little bit of everything. I also opened my last happy day count down calendar present given to me my my grandparents so now have a full set of happy day toys.
Next up we went to the Haynes motor museum. There were lots of cars!
And I got to drive round the site in my very own truck.
And ride a motorbike.
After a pit stop at the cafe we returned home for a quick nap.
At teatime we had my birthday cake – a George cake made by the big M.
We then opened my presents.
I loved them all – and am now playing with everything so I don’t want to go to bed.
The big d also hung my curtains which I got for my birthday. They make my bedroom look very smart!
Yesterday we made great use of both the fine weather and our National Trust membership by visiting a local property called Barrington Court.
I liked the higgledy piggledyness of the house and had über fun sliding around the highly polished floors.
It has an interesting recent history having been the NT’s first major acquisition around the turn of the century (that’s a really long time ago!). However, it was fraught with money issues so the trust leased it to the Lyle family of the sugar fame and they renovated it completely. They also installed a very cool ‘thunder box’ in the bathroom. That was my other favourite bit.
In other news it’s my birthday in a week. I’m very excited as I saw my present (wrapped up) and it’s big….
