This past Sunday, I turned 25, halfway to 50, a quarter century old 😛 Despite the general anxiety that comes along with getting a year older (25 already? Shouldn’t I have written a novel or something by now??), I had an excellent birthday weekend.
On Saturday, Dan surprised me by picking me up from work and telling me to dress for the outdoors when we got home. After a little car ride along a familiar road, we arrived:
This is probably incredibly nerdy of me, but I have wanted to go to Monkey World for a long time now. Dan used to work there while he was at uni directing traffic in the car park and has told me about it. Basically it is a rescue and rehabilitation centre for primates, they even have their own show on Animal Planet!
Dan even got me a souvenir at the gift shop 🙂 After Monkey World, Dan and I went and had dinner at the Scotts Arms, which is the pub we went to here with the garden view of Corfe Castle.
The next day, I had another birthday outing, this time to Ikea. I love Ikea so much and Dan let me just have at it. So the flat actually looks quite a bit different from how it looks in the flat tour pics now, haha! We got a bunch of neat stuff to make our place more homey. In addition to the Ikea trip, I also got a home cooked meal from my lovely husband consisting of some of my favorites.
