So what did I actually do for my 21st birthday?
Well as you can imagine I wanted to spend it with my little princess. My birthday was Sunday 15th, but we started celebrating a few days before.
We started off by going shopping with my mum on the Friday, Amelia and I, a girls day out to lakeside shopping centre. Mum wanted to treat me for my birthday so she bought me some new clothes and a few other bits that I picked out.
Lakesides biggest draw by far is the huge Primark. It’s spread over three floors and stocks so many different items it’s impossible to know where to start looking. The lingerie section alone is the size of one floor in my more local Primark. Despite going shopping for clothes for me we obviously ended up in the baby section first and didn’t return empty handed. Amelia ended up with an entire outfit courtesy of her nanny, a Minnie Mouse tracksuit and matching shoes.
When we finally made it to the women’s section I was spoilt for choice. I know Primark is not everyone’s shop of choice but with a reflux baby I refuse to let anyone buy me expensive clothes; they all look the same with baby sick on regardless of cost. (That said I am very fussy with my jeans and always go to Topshops petite section) We ended up with three big bags full of clothes and jewellery – I’m terrible for loosing earrings so primark is the perfect place to stock up – and had to make a trip back to the car to unload before getting lunch.
Lunch had to be Pizza Hut for mum and I. Amelia had a little packed lunch consisting of her milk, a yoghurt, a Farleys rusk, banana and a giant carrot and sweet corn puff from Ella’s Kitchen.
Below are just a few of the bits mum got me: pyjamas, a bralet and matching bottoms, rainbow highlighter, frilly socks, a pretty belly bar and nail varnish. If you’re looking to restock your wardrobe Lakeside shopping centre is definitely the place to go.
