Twenty One

You may have read that on Saturday I turned the big two one. Long gone are the days in which your biggest problem is not having the smelliest gel pen or not having the shortest school tie, eh? No, twenty one means you are most definitely an adult. I don't actually mind be twenty one, because really what is being an adult? Sometimes I just think adults are older people simply pretending to how to live. Fake it 'til you make it and all that..

Back to my Birthday though, my weekend was lovely. I had some wonderful presents and messages, and went to shop/see Shrek the Musical in Birmingham, followed by a meal with perhaps my favourite family members yesterday (I know.. we shouldn't have favourites, but when there's so many of them, it's impossible not to, right?). I may have also pre-ordered the new MacBook.. oops!


But, what I think know was most important to me, was the time and effort made my some family members and friends. You could give me all the money in the world, and it still wouldn't mean as much as say a yankee candle, my favourite perfume or a personalised card. And put materialistic gifts aside, a room full of family members laughing and taking the p*ss out of each other is something that should be treasured. Life's too short to surround yourself with negativity - celebrate with the people you love and I can guarantee you, you'll never have a bad time. 

I didn't take many photos as sometimes I believe it's important to live in the moment rather than being too busy trying to capture it but here's a few. Also, thank you to everyone who wished my Happy Birthday, it really did put a smile on my face.
