Happy Birthday to me!

Well, actually it was at the end of January, so don’t all start singing at once! I’ve been meaning to blog about the BEST present ever since then. So here goes…

The Giraffe gave me an envelope*. A plain white C5 envelope with “The Birthday Girl” written on it. Inside were the following pieces of paper:

How exciting!! But I still have absolutely no idea where we’re going or what we’re doing when we get there. Every single time I asked, hoping to catch her off guard, the answer has been #SecretTrip (Yes, the word hashtag has actually been used on occasion.)

So in a few weeks, I’m looking forward to a proper grown-up weekend away with my lovely girlfriend (and without the child, who will be staying with my parents) but I have have no clue what I’m looking forward to. I won’t find out until we are literally on the doorstep (I have offered to drive, but she saw through that as well).  I’ve been told not to ask questions if I’m asked to pack specific things, which makes me think she’s going to ask me to pack completely spurious stuff just to throw me off the scent. But that could just be my suspicious brain working in overdrive. Or maybe it shows I can actually be devious deep down. Who knows?

I have racked my brain trying to think of all the places we said we’d like to visit, but there are too many to even begin to guess which one she’s picked. If indeed she has even picked one of them.

In short, I have no clue and I can’t wait to find out!

I will report back when I have more details…





*She gave me other things as well, she’s not mean!
