Yet another Year

I grew older yesterday with my friends around to celebrate and my Cousin as well. We had free bowling somewhere in Elephant and Castle and went to Nando's. Did I skip something?
Yes about my weekend and how it all came together.

One of my best friends, Israel Houghton and I

It was a joyous day on Saturday 28th. My friends and I attended the Big-Church-day-out event at Shoreham-by-sea. We spent quite a lot of money that day but thank God a friend paid for my ticket (Thank you very much.. You are a darling).  It was fun filled getting to see Israel Houghton on stage, and the likes of Jahaziel (I'm not sure of the spelling). We couldn't have possibly missed it. Towards the end was amazing but we couldn't stay longer because we had to go to Birmingham the next day - We had a revival at Church and it was the turn of Birmingham church.

I arrived home from Shoreham 12am Sunday morning and hit the bed about thirty minutes later. I woke up 4am in order to get to Peckham for 7am where the coach to Birmingham leaves. I got a lift from my Uncle that morning about past 5 and got the train from East Croydon to London Bridge for 5:32. The end of this is that I got there early and we all went Birmingham. My return wasn't any better from the previous day. I arrived home about some minutes before 1am and my day was ruined. I had a headache. All birthday plans were cancelled (thank God it wasn't my birthday).

                     A quarter of my birthday cake on a friend's plate
On my birthday I did the usual thing- Thank God for a new year and a successful one at that. Got a call from friends and one from my beautiful Mother (she prayed for me -  how sweet?). Anyway, I went to Elephant and Castle with my Cousin that evening and we had fun at the Superbowl but their food was crap. The customer service was -3 and they use their hands to pick up the straw we were meant to drink with. It was disgusting and we all thought, well, these chips may have been spat on or something lol (that was worse, we stopped eating immediately). Saving all appetite for Nando's, we had almost 5 course meal I should think. Lots to eat. We shared a Platter which was a big meal already, then we had usual drinks but I had water and same as my friends. Then came Frozen yoghurt (Yes!) and Mango sorbet (lovely). The cake was beautiful and very delicious (not too sweet). It was amazing. We left Nando's about ten-ish and my Cousin and I didn't get home till about some minutes to midnight.
                                      My pretty cousin and I 
I got a handmade card from my Cousin and everyone at home but mostly made by my gorgeous Cousin, ru (that's what I call her sometimes). Then and Ikea gift card and a mirror (pretty and handy). We got home to meet my auntie and as usual she said "It was good you had a lovely day and for taking 'r' along but tomorrow you have to be up before 10 and you need to help. You need to do some ironing. I left you today because it's your birthday". Well, someone hears that and they'll think I do nothing at all in the house but that's my auntie for you. Whatever you do today is appreciated for some hours and afterwards you need to do more... lol bless her. I don't feel offended when she tells me to do stuff even if I was going to do it anyway, because I have no choice, I live here and I should do it.
Well, I'll be leaving here in a couple of months back to beautiful Docklands with all the peace and quiet around. It's a very lovely place to live.

I've got to go before my auntie comes to yank my pc off me.lool. Have a blessed day.


Thank you!
