hello...the other side







So, this is me. 40.
Don't look much different to 39 really... just a bit relieved this milestone has passed and I can move on.
My birthday was last Tuesday.  I was treated to shopping in Bath, in particular Walcot Street.  With it's mix of vintage shops, skandi design shops and cafes.  Heaven for a girl like me.
I treated myself to this (thanks mum!) from here, and spent the rest of the day walking on air.
Tuesday evening Dan and I had dinner at Jamie's Italian.  I do not ever want to eat anywhere else again!  Nothing will live up to the quality of food!  It was such an amazing dining experience.... total yum!  Thank you Mel for babysitting.


The following day we quickly packed and drove to Cornwall for the next leg of my birthday celebration adventure!  More of that on the next post........

  4. You look great on the other side & much younger than 40. Bath is such a fab place to spend the day and you did great shopping. Love the teapot - bet tea tastes better from that pot! Also love Jamie's - it is a favourite place. Glad you had such a good day.x

  10. Oh Lou, I'm so glad you had such a smashing birthday! You look so beautiful and spritely- puts me and my flabby wrinkles to shame and I am a little bit younger!

    The two of us are going to Bath for the weekend for our 10th wedding anniversary- I'm now extremely tempted by Jamie's Italian! xxx

  11. Hello Lou!
    Welcome to the 40's !! It looks as though you're starting the decade in style - and you certainly look very young for a forty year old !!
    I spy the Toast bag on the floor there .... ;-)
    so pleased you had a happy day in Bath with lots of treats. Can't wait to hear about the trip to Cornwall,
    xx
