It was my birthday on Saturday, and I had a great weekend. I had a quiet family day on Saturday setting up my new birthday present laptop, and opening other gifts.

I got lots of other great things too, including a very relaxing adult colouring book and pencils, Lush goodies and some cute nail polishes.

My cake was from Wholefoods, and was a delicious vanilla sponge with fresh raspberries and blackberries and mountains of buttercream. I like to keep my birthdays quiet and private, so I enjoyed this and a massive Indian takeaway at home with my family. After dinner, I did some colouring in with my new stuff, ate more birthday cake and just had a relaxing night.

The next day, I had a birthday lunch with friends at NY American Grill in Princes Square in Glasgow. It’s a great New York bistro-style restaurant. I had calamari, followed by southern-fried chicken with fries and a side of macaroni cheese. Lots of cocktails were enjoyed too, of course.

How do you like to celebrate your birthday?
