This week has been...

Hopeful

 Flaky

Thirsty Work

 Retro

 Surprising

 Bubbly

 Tearful

 Sweeeet

 ⋆A gorgeous little keepsake from a wonderful family friend. I expect this'll be one to weap at in ten years time when I'm feeding my cats. The plural here indicating well over ten.⋆

⋆My lovely housemate surprised me with a chocolate flake birthday cake before our 9am lecture. It was possibly the earliest rendition of Happy Birthday I've heard. As well as the best breakfast. Ever.⋆

 ⋆Keeping up those fluid levels [to a disapproving look from Sophie, a lovely lady with an equally lovely blog]⋆

⋆The old school jukebox at Dockers Diner - host to birthday breakfast number two⋆

 ⋆Another early morning surprise in the form of banners and balloons. Which are currently working their way into every room possible. Life. Of. Their. Own.⋆

⋆What would a birthday be without a family toast? Well, corkless for one, and that is a terrible, terrible thing indeed⋆

⋆My sister's handmade card based on the newspaper blackout blog/book. She thought it shoddy, I thought it far too emotional to handle and proceeded to cry. I win.⋆

⋆My mum made a glorious tower of cupcakes instead of the usual iced sponge. Much better in my eyes - why have one cake when you can have twenty?! ⋆

All in all it's been such a wonderful week. I've been spoilt, treated and surprised by some lovely friends and wonderful family who, frankly, I owe everything to. The last few years have been such a blast, but not without their struggles.

If I'd known at my 18th birthday how far things could come in just 3 years, I would probably have laughed. Wishing secretly of course that it was true.
And it was.
 It is.

So thank you. To those who weren't afraid to pick up the pieces and help things get back on track. I'll never forget it.
