Day 237 lockdown birthday and Abbie the Campervan comes home! 🎉🎊🥳🎁🎂🚐

I have honestly had THE loveliest day!

Loved this from Andrina! 🦥💕

The day started with a slobbery kiss from all the gorgeous pups!

Of course Calaidh brings me a ball!
Bhru posing when she just been trying to cover me with kisses!

Freya didn’t sit still long enough to let me get a photo!!

Craig made croissants with raspberry jam, coffee and alcohol free Buck’s Fizz for breakfast! Nosecco with fresh orange…. I may have had some more Nosecco before we went out!

Craig is soooo good at birthdays. Since we’ve been together I’ve got over the shock at how much he spends and chose to roll with it.

I’ve had the loveliest presents from the loveliest people. Had lots of chats and a FaceTime with mum and dad! I feel very loved.

A lovely birthday card from Claire!

Off we got to Tartan Campers to pick up Abbie the newly converted camper van!!

So here I go…. I’m about to see the renovations for the first time!!
Honestly love what they have done!!
With the pop top up!
Checking out the seats!
One happy girl about to drive off!

I did almost drive off. I couldn’t adjust the seat height and had to ask the guys to show me how…. the radio was blaring out “I need a hero” (honestly you couldn’t make this up!) then I waved and boom stalled!!!!! And started the van and boom stalled again. Honestly talk about cringeworthy!!!! I’m so used to the high biting point of the Citroeney thing I’d forgotten how to drive my own van!!?!?? 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️. By the time I got out of Tartan Campers yard I was hysterically laughing and bright red!

We went to Gro Coffee in Irvine for lunch.

I had a mac’n’cheese toastie with Arran chilli cheddar, jalapeños and gherkin. Craig has ham, black pudding, Arran Smokey cheese with onion and chutney. No need for dinner tonight… we also both had the most amazing Oat Lattes.

Cake anyone?!??
Brought these home for “dinner”!!

I realise there were big announcements today where the Avery side of the family move to COVID-19 level 4 from Friday which means more like a lockdown, we stay at level 3 and my mum and dad move to level 2 on Tuesday next week. They must be good over in Midlothian!

We live in North Ayrshire and will stay at level 3 where all around us East and South Ayrshire move up to level 4.

I’m sure there’s so much more I could write but I’ve not stopped all day and I’m gonna spend the evening with Craig, eating lots of cake and drinking Nosecco.

Alcohol free cheers everyone!! These are mini bottles of Nosecco…. perfect for the fridge in the van. huge bottles of Thatchers Zero which I can’t wait to try.

I would like to thank everyone for their amazing support in my journey so far. The birthday wishes are out of this world and I promise I will get to the personal messages one by one. Writing this blog has become a way of life for me. I hope it helps one or two of you as much as it helps me to write it.

Stay safe everyone ❤️❤️❤️
