And 4 days after Christmas.....

We have Amber's birthday. Which may not be associated with the 25th in anyway shape or form. On pain of death and sleeping on the couch. This year Amber woke up at the crack of dawn (sometime before 8) and then proceeded to go and wake up Dan by jumping up and down on his bed in order to wake him up. Then we went downstairs and opened presents. Then (thankfully) we went back to bed for a couple more hours sleep. Amber was pretty happy with her loot this year. That night we all went out for dinner in Guildford to Wagamama and the following day I took her to London for her birthday surprise.



We went to Hamleys. For those of you who don't know Hamleys is a GIGANTIC toy store. 6 stories of awesome. You kind of have to see it to believe it. So here.

So that was Hamleys. The next day Amber went to the spa (for her birthday present) while I made her birthday cake. I decided to do something different this year as when I asked her she said she didn't know what kind of cake she wanted. I made her a red velvet cake. As the cake mix includes 20mls of red food colouring the kitchen looked a little like something out of a horror scene, the cake mix being bright red. I had to make sure to clean it up properly before she came home as I wanted to surprise her when she cut into it.




So that was Amber's 27th birthday. Our next adventure will be tomorrow as we are all going to see Cirque du Soleil. I will poke Amber until she writes you all and tells you all about it.... Be prepared to wait for a while though as she is the Queen of Procrastination! Love to you all.

P.S apparently I also managed to miss christmas all together... So she said she would write about that also. But just in case don't hold your breath as she might not think it is such a great idea tomorrow.
