Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!
We had a couple of important birthdays to celebrate this weekend so, on Saturday, we decided to take a road trip back to our home town of Essex. It’s the first time we’ve been back to Essex this year, and it was really nice to catch up with family and old friends.
On Saturday night, we celebrated M’s Dad’s birthday at the Strada Italian restaurant at Lakeside. We had a great night and the food was really good.
On Sunday, we headed to M’s best friend’s in Hertfordshire to celebrate his 40th birthday. It was really good to catch up with the gang and their off-spring (all of whom have grown incredibly since we last saw them!) To mark his friend’s special birthday, M had sprayed a unique piece of graffiti art for him. (The lettering spells out his friend’s surname!)
Before we left for the party on Sunday, I managed to squeeze in a visit to see my best friend from school. It was so good to see her! We met each other on the first day of school and we’ve been friends now for 35 years! I still can’t believe that we turn 40 in a few weeks time!
So, after a busy Bank Holiday weekend, I’ve finally managed to sit down and write a blog post and… guess what…. it’s my 100th post!!! After nearly a year of blogging, I’ve finally made it to the big 100! It took a while didn’t it?
To celebrate reaching my 100th blog post, I thought I’d make some celebration raw chocolates I’ve made one batch of goji & almond raw chocolate hearts, and one batch of raw chocolate orange segments. Do you fancy sharing them with me? If so, just leave me a comment below and I’ll choose a winner at random next Monday, 14th May.
Good luck everyone!
I am pleased to say that the lucky winner is…..
Candy @ Healthy in Candyland!
Congratulations Candy! The book will be flying its way across to you very shortly!
Have a great week everyone! xx
