24





It was my birthday yesterday, and HOLY CRAP I'M 24. Where did 23 go? I was content with 23. Being 24 means I'm almost 25, which is almost 30, which is almost 100, so I'm pretty much an elderly woman now. ARGHH. Clearly I haven't matured with age though, as I am still quite content to put on a party hat and play with sparklers. I'm an adult!

I had a pretty good birthday. My family came over to my house and we sat outside eating pizza and cake. My mum makes this fancy French pizza thing called a tarte flambée and it is the best thing IN THE WORLD. I implore you to force your own mothers to make this meal for you immediately. It is delicious and definitely worth getting fat over.

Speaking of eating food (when aren't I?!), there are a whoooooole bunch of leftovers in my fridge which I am now going to rub all over my face. See you later!

  1. That cake looks amazing, and now I think I will be forced to attempt making this tarte flambée...

    Happy, happy birthday! 24 is a good age to be :)

  5. haha, I know time flies by so quickly! I say the same things as well. When I was turning 20 I was like zomg that's like almost marriage time and I'm old and I can't do anything fun now. I'm 22 now and I still don't feel like I've become a proper adult!
    happy 24th! looks like you'll have a lot of yummy leftovers to feast upon ;)

    1. Haha! When I was turning 20 I was like I'M SO OLD NOW but now I think that it's a really young age. I'm sure that I'll think the same thing about being 24 when I turn 30 :)

  19. Happy birthday! Looks like you got some super cute presents and the pizza and cake both look super yummy! I know exactly what you mean about age milestones, I am 28 which is nearly 30 and when I was younger 30 seemed SO old! Like, proper adult grown up type, which I definitely do not feel! xo

  21. Happy bladdy birthday and welcome to the old folks brigade, pal! Next stop, the retirement home. But seriously, enjoy being 24, which is definitely a not-quite-adult age and is still closer to 20 than the big 3-0. That's what I keep telling myself as I layer on the anti-wrinkle cream, anyway. I cracked up and spat tea all over my jumper because of your book post below, by the way. Here is a birthday book recommendation - the Gum Thief by Douglas Coupland. It's mental, and hugely enjoyable :D

    1. It feels really old to me! You're younger than me aren't you? Ooh that book sounds familiar. I will check it out. Thanks!!

    2. Nope, I'm nearing 25 *sob*. I just can't bring myself to change my age on my Blogger profile. It feels too much like an admission of old age. Yesss definitely check it out, such a good read :) x

  48. Dude, why can't I find the date this post was posted?? I want to know when your birthday was exactly!! Happy belated birthday, darling! ♥ From the looks and sounds of it, it was pretty fabulous and yummy. How can a birthday be bad with so many prezzies?? I too still wear party hats if they're around, so I suppose I'll always be a child. I'm totally okay with that. I am technically about to be in the grandma status but I certainly will not act like it. Well, that's if you don't count that I require naps now as I get tired during the day. haha
    Anywayyy, I love your face and I am so glad that YOU'RE blogging regularly now, too! I have missed these funny posts from you.
