My 35th birthday weekend in pictures

As most of you know this last weekend was my 35th birthday weekend and it was brilliant!

Mr O and I both took the day off on Friday and I got to have a massive lay in that was only improved by the fact the Mr O brought me a skinny cappuccino to have in bed

      He had more fun with the sparklers than the kids did!

  8. Only just saw this, happy belated birthday!

    As for orchids, they like suffering, so you only need to give them water every month (or just under). Also if the flowers do die, don’t panic, you can cut it at set point (google for complete instructions) and they will grow back!

      Thank you! And for the orchid tips. I have been watering it very sparingly.
