Yesterday was my birthday and I turned a year older yet again. Funny how that works… Every year! I should do what my dad did and just have stopped at 25.
It was a great day though. The boyfriend took me out to dinner in a nice Italian restaurant, and the food was delicious. Because he’s in the process of buying a home, we’re trying to save money, so we’re pretty much skipping gifts. He did get me an adorable little key holder, for when we (hopefully) get our place and I can use it for the key to our shared home. Very cute!
We also went to view the flat, and it’s really nice. I really hope that we get it! The sellers are going to leave the white goods in the kitchen as well, which is great news since it saves us a lot of money compared to having to buy everything straight off the bat.
I really hope everything will work out and that we will get the place!
I baked a chocolate cake yesterday as well. It was odd having to find some ingredients in another country, but I managed to eventually. I need to get used to finding things here anyway, I guess!
Oh, and my sister got me a gift certificate at Amazon, so now I’m going to splurge on e-books! The boyfriend’s mother got me a cute bracelet and a gorgeous owl to keep out in what hopefully will be our new garden. That’s not a real owl, by the way, but a solar powered light for the garden. Since I realized it might have sounded like it was real!
