My 22nd Birthday...

I turned 22 on Saturday and well lets just say the day was a mixture of emotions! There were times I was so happy and having a lovely time and other times I just felt so low and so sad. If you read this post you will know why I wasn't particuarly looking forward to my birthday but I was still trying to be optimistic and be positive. I'll be honest I started the day off crying in bed. I think because I had been so anxious about the day, the fact it had finally arrived and I was another year older, just hit me. I also was so sad that some of the things I expected to happen did. That morning I was a mixture of angry and upset about a few things but there was nothing I could do. I also felt like some people just didn't care and that's never a nice feeling. I actually hate I've started this post of like this because I really don't want people to just think I'm a moany bitch and I want sympathy, I'm just being totally honest about it all and that's genuinely how my day started.

I knew George and his brothers were waiting in the room for me and they were all so excited and happy and I didn't want to put a downer on it so I pulled myself together, opened my lovely presents and we all ate some cake. I went for a giant mini roll as my birthday cake this year, probably not worth £6 but you know it was good, just not as good as a chocolate traybake! I loved all of my birthday presents and George had actually managed to get a few from my wishlist which I wasn't expecting! I was so happy to open Reasons To Stay Alive, I've read a few pages and I already know I'm going to love it. I also love the Calm To Go by This Works. This is going to be perfect for when we're out if I'm feeling a bit anxious. I can just keep it in it's little case in my pocket so it's there whenever I need it. Food always makes me happy and Pop Tarts are just my fave. George got me chocolate ones for christmas and the strawberry ones for my birthday, I mentioned in my christmas post it's a bit of a jokey tradition for us to get each other them each year! Prosecco is always a good idea and as I didn't get chance to have it on my actual birthday I'm going to save it for Saturday night and enjoy it then. Turkish delight is something I very rarely have but I love the traditional one so I can't wait to have some of this. The toblerone was wrapped up from the boys and it's some of my favourite chocolate so I'll be honest this is almost all gone! The last thing I opened was the London Erasers from Paperchase. This sounds stupid but this present actually made me a bit emotional, not like I'd not already cried enough that morning! Anything London related makes me want to cry and I just thought these were such a thoughful present. I hadn't seen them on the website or anything so I literally had no idea. Might only be a bit of stationary but to me it meant a lot and I can't wait for them to be on display in our office (which we will complete one day).
After opening presents we got ready to go for a meal and we decided on Pizza Hut weeks ago so I had been looking forward to it for ages. I just love pizza. We got quite a lot of food and it was all just incredible. The cookie dough there is just amazing, Me and George shared a Raspberry and White Chocolate one and I just want to eat it again now.
After that we just went to a few shops and because I'm just a big kid, I bought myself a Trolls Calendar. I just love Trolls okay! We all picked up a few other bits too and got some more snacks and food for that night. When we were back we all watched Ouija Origin Of Evil which was so creepy. We all screamed a few times! I don't know why we do it to ourselves but we always watch at least one horror film we're all together.
Even though the morning started off a bit rocky, it did end up been a really nice day and I'm so happy those three were there. I'd have probably just stayed in bed otherwise. They all cheered me up so much.

I saw Reasons to Stay Alive on the preview pic and had to read because it's such a good book!! I was in a really dark place a few months back and it made things so much lighter. Happy Birthday!! I turned 22 two weeks ago and so far I think Taylor Swift seriously over exaggerated the merits of it ;) I'm glad you had a lovely day, I had no idea they did giant mini rolls!! Pizza Hut cookie dough is definitely the best too.

So glad that your birthday got better after the rough start. Happy 22nd!! All of your presents sound lovely, especially the pop-tarts! Definitely the breakfast fave of my childhood/teenage years/now 😂😂.

Here's to the next year! Hope it's a great one ❤❤.
