Birthday fun

Yesterday was my 26th birthday (Hurrah, etc). I had a very lovely, quiet day, just spending time with James and enjoying the sunshine. We are both so busy with our respective courses that we've seen very little of each other for the past few weeks, and it was a treat just to be able to spend the day together. We went on a little trip on the new guided busway out to St Ives. It was a very quick, quiet, smooth ride, just like a train that can also go on the roads. We were out at St Ives in 20 minutes. We bought a picnic and the papers in Waitrose and then went for a walk across the river to the chandlery at Jones' Boatyard. The quayside was really busy so we headed down towards the lock and found a nice place to sit on the bank of the river in the sun, and read the papers while eating our picnic. 

We whizzed back to Cambridge in time for me to go and cast my vote for Chancellor of the university (as an alumni with an MA(Cantab) I am eligible to vote). Afterwards, we had dinner in the lovely St John's Chop House. In all, it was a lovely day.

  2. Many happy returns Amy.

    I'm not one for regrets, but if I had my time again I'd spend my 20s living on a metrofloat widebeam bachelorette pad - to think when I was your age I didn't have a boat or a single greyhound - unbelievable!

    Live the dream!

  3. Belated Happy Birthday Amy, it sounds like you both had a lovely day. Thank goodness for the good weather, what a treat!
