I celebrated my 24th birthday last Friday, which is weird cause it feels like five minutes ago since my last birthday. I do sound like one of those twitter accounts with a dolphin as the profile picture, but seriously slow the eff down time.
I went back home for my birthday, aka Shrewsbury, or the town of flowers/ birth place of Charles Darwin if that makes it sound a bit more exciting. It definitely does, so let’s roll with that. I haven’t spent my birthday at home for a good couple of years, so I was excited to not have to do that manic house tidy that you do whenever you’re parents are visiting, and to be able to see everyone.
Amazing mars bar crepe and marshmallow iced latte from Chez Sophie in Shrewsbury.
Henry’s Cookie Monster Shake.
Lunch at Bear Steps in Shrewsbury with Mum.
My birthday mainly consisted of eating. Standard. But I got to spend time with all my family, discovered that my little brother and sister love my camera *future vloggers perhaps?* ate a lot of takeaways and even managed to see a bit of sunshine too!

Colourful flowers in the Dingle in Shrewsbury Quarry.
Dress: New Look
This is me trying to get a nice picture with Frank and he genuinely looks like he is hating life. Hahaha.
I’ve never really been bothered about my birthday before, like turning older has never really had that much of an effect on me, but recently, getting older does scare me. I have realised though, that getting older is a privilege and with every year comes experience and knowledge.. Well I hope anyways.

Pretty peonies in Henry’s Mum’s garden.
Being 23 was an exciting year for me, it was a slow start which made me give myself a big old kick up the bum and took some pretty big risks. I went on an exciting trip, and did some stuff that I’ve always wanted to do. I think with every year, you gain more confidence and stop caring as much about what other people think. I’m determined to make the year 24 an exciting one, and I’ve come to realise that it probably won’t matter what age I am.. I never will feel ‘grown up.’
