Last bank holiday weekend we all decided to take a day trip as part of my younger sister N’s birthday celebrations. She had already decided she wanted to go to Bournemouth and thankfully on the day the weather was gorgeous!
We did get stuck in traffic on the way but we entertained ourselves and ha a laugh anyway. We also went through some of the many snacks we’d all brought (now a big fan of the new Maryland individually wrapped cookies!)
The beach was gorgeous and even had some lovely seashells lying around. My sisters and Saq spent much of the time snapping pics with their lah-di-dah cameras (courtesy of which are some of the following pics which I nicked hehe, thanks guys! 😉 )
We ate lunch at a nearby restaurant:
Afterwards we headed towards a nearby place called Durdle Door recommended by my eldest sis F. We were amazed at how beautiful it was, it really felt like being in another country!
We then walked the extremely long and tiring and tough way back up (throwing in words of encouragement to each other through gasps of breath). That is all except Amir who ran up to the top and acted like it was nothing!
We presented my sis with all her birthday presents in the car at the top and she was delighted. I made her a basket of gifts including perfume, a shawl, a handbag, mini gadgets and some shoes. I also baked her these the day before which we all enjoyed.
By the time we got home we were all ready for bed! Overall I think my sis had a really nice birthday and it was great for everyone to have had such a lovely day, here’s hoping to many more! X
