As I have been tied to the sofa all day with a very demanding, hungry baby I thought I’d make use of my one free hand and tip-tap an extra blog post.
This time last year, we had just arrived in Las Vegas to celebrate my birthday. We had a brilliant time eating, drinking and exploring. What a difference a year makes! I’m not sure what we have planned for my birthday this year but it will be much more child friendly than Las Vegas!
This year we’ll be celebrating in quite a different style. There’s no chance of getting out the house early, relaxing by the pool, eating in a fancy restaurant or watching a show. There’ll be no cocktails or Black Jack but plenty of coffee and nappy roulette!
Hopefully we’ll have some sort of yummy breakfast and hopefully it will be more successful than last year. It’s a running joke that we got up super early, travelled a good few miles on a not so great bus to a more run down area of LasVegas for what TripAdvisor claimed were the best pancakes in the city. Turns out they were distinctly average, bordering on poor compared to all the other lovely, fancy breakfast options right on our doorstep on The Strip! We still have a good laugh about that particular breakfast now and Chris is keen not to repeat that mistake!
The weather will hopefully be nice and warm, just like last year and hopefully all three of us can just have a nice day together. Unfortunately my family and friends still can’t be part of the celebrations but baby Flossie will make up for that.
Now how do you tell a 3 week old baby that the best birthday present you could have would be uninterrupted night time sleep….worth a try?!
