The Big Birthday

The Big Birthday
July 8, 2013
So two weeks ago I turned thirty. The big 3 0. Its been busy!

We went to the safari park at Port Lympne and stayed there for the evening!

We went to one of my work friends weddings!

Congratulations to Nick and Vanessa!

We went to Go Ape! and climbed some trees.

We ate some chicken at a BRILLIANT restaurant which I cant recommend enough called Clockjack Oven.

We ate proper London pie, mash and liquor at Manzes in Deptford. This was my first proper pie and mash despite having lived in London for over 5 years!!

We went to see Man of Steel at the cinema and we a little underwhelmed. I think it was a little built up so maybe I was expecting more Or maybe its just that they tried to put too much into one film and then I got bored of watching buildings get destroyedCould be either.

We went to London Zoo with some of my very best friends then went out and got drunk. So drunk that I managed to cook breakfast for everyone but didnt feel up to eating it! And Id made American style pancakes and Oscar Meyer bacon with maple syrup!

I went back to work and spent the week miserable then had my mom, big sister, brother in law and niece and nephew come and visit for a couple of nights. That wont be happening again any time soon!

Then yesterday (after my family had left) we went off into Kent to visit with Lucys family and spent the afternoon watching Andy Murray win at Wimbledon (Well done, Andy) and eating buffet style food courtesay of Lucys grandparents.

A great end to a great few weeks!

Ill update you at some point soon about how my weight loss/fitness journey is getting on but until then Take care!

Doesn't sound like you need a goodie really - plainly you have managed to have a
great birthday fortnight - no less. I was fifty every day for at least ten days!
The beginning of a wonderful decade for you - have fun emoticon

    Turning 30 isn't so bad, I felt I didn't need to answer to my parents any more, very liberating!

Look us up next time you are in Kent, we love visitors!
