November has whizzed by in a whirl of birthday celebrations and Christmas prep. I can’t believe Christmas is less than a month away! We are really looking forward to getting our tree up (well the girls and I are. Ryan, not so much.)
A date Night for my birthday
Ryan and I went to the cinema to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which we really enjoyed. We went to the posh Gallery section, which has a bar and extra comfy seats. You also get nachos, popcorn and soft drinks included in the ticket price. I don’t want to go back to the normal cinema experience after that though!
A 40th Birthday Costume Party
My friend’s husband had an excellent 40th birthday party, in a marquee in their garden. As he was born in the 1970s, that was the costume theme and we had great fun coming up with our costumes. Ryan constructed a huge cardboard space shuttle. We then had to deconstruct it to get into the car…
I went for a Clockwork Orange inspired costume, which is a nice easy one, if you are looking for a Halloween costume next year! I found a tutorial for the make-up, but essentially it’s just loads of eyeliner and false eyelashes. They feel quite weird but you get used to it!
