Upper Street

It was my boyfriend's birthday on Friday, he is now the grand old age of 22. Our friends took the day off work/half a day off work to come meet me after work and go out. It was quite a sight having nine boys meet me after work, I looked liked I was being pimped out haha! Luckily one of friends who lives in London met us for a bit so that I could have little girl company. We went on a little bar crawl and ended up at the O2 Academy for a trusty Indie night.

001. Cocktails! They were delish. We went to a bar called Slim Jims as they had happy hour on cocktails. The sign of an amazing bar in my opinion. Highly recommended if you are ever in the area. Not just because they take bras and knickers as payments for a drink....

002. Fancy some pizza? A few of us ended up going out for dinner to line out stomachs. It is not every day that you get a 4ft pizza!

003. Planking. I spent the entire 10 seconds he was balancing on a phone box scared he was going to fall off and break his neck. Luckily we did not have to dash to the nearest hospital. I guess these things happen when boys egg each other on...

004. Me and my lovely friend! We went to Sixth Form together and she ended up moving to London for uni and never came back home. Not that I blame her but I still miss her crazy amounts. It is always so nice when we meet up! I wore this dress.

005. The birthday boy and I. This is the best of a bad bunch! My hair looks a bit frazzled, I blame the fact I had been up since six!

My greedy boyfriend has had a birthday weekend. My mum did him a birthday breakfast for smocked salmon and scrambled eggs on bagels and he went home with armfuls of presents. Tonight we are going out for a birthday meal to our local Mexican with his family. I think it will be a bit of a come down tomorrow when he doesn't get to do anything.
