What Katie Did #18

Hello Lovelies,

PHEW, what a week!

Sorry I am a day late with this which isn’t like me but I did mention last week I wasn’t sure whether I would be able to get the post up yesterday seeing as I’m away and reliant on crappy wifi.

So anyways, i’m a day late.

The week started off very quiet for me, working as usual but my birthday bonanza started on Thursday with a fab girlie lunch with the one and only Daniella, who absolutely spoiled me rotten with awesome gifts. We went for Teppanyaki in Newcastle and I even managed to catch the omlette that the hot plate master hurled at me.

Friday, I’m not going to lie, saw me getting up at an ungodly hour to drive to London. Yes folks, I went to Harry Potter world…. much to the amusement of Becky from Mrs BeBe’s Ramblings. I’m not a one of ‘those’ Potter fans but it was really interesting and a must see if you liked the books and films. We got lots of great photos and behind the scenes stories so it really was just great.

Friday evening saw us meet up with friends in London for dinner and drinks.. and cruelly, thanks to Mr Tramp, major cringing in front of the entire Hard Rock Cafe who all sang me Happy Birthday. Oh the shame! I did sacrifice my diet just to have their Heavy Metal chicken and fajitas but hey, it’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want too.. and by cry, I mean eat junk food!

I had won the Nazila competition to go and see Ghost but unfortunately my other plans took precedence which is a shame but on hindsight, bro’s before Gho’s (Yes, I’m trying to be cool!)

Saturday I took Mr Tramp to Madame Tussaud’s as he had never been before. I have and I must say, it has changed LOTS since I was last there and I hate to say it, not for the better. Still, we went, we saw and we queued. It’s one to cross off the list isn’t it.

Now there’s sad news folks. I had my birthday present money burning a hole in my pocket and I didn’t buy a single thing. Boy did I try. I think I did 4 laps of the handbag rooms in Harrods and not one single bag jumped out at me… well… a Chanel one did but they didn’t have it in the colour & hardware combination I wanted…. and also typically, the watch I wanted was also out of stock. It just wasn’t my weekend!

Now.. on with the pictures for this hectic birthday week!

      I didn’t really like the film to be honest ha ha!

      I’d been pooling all my spare money for ages ready to buy a shiny new bag, it just wasn’t meant to be!
