I had such a busy week, culminating with my birthday yesterday. I'm not a fan of celebrating birthdays. To me they are just another unwelcome reminder that I'm getting older. However, my loved ones had different ideas. Starting with bacon and eggs at my brother's, Tapas and Sangria for lunch, Latin American delights with Mojitos at Las Iguanas, and G&T night caps at Peppermint. Phew, I'm exhausted and, no doubt, 5lbs heavier!
I made out like a bandit on the gift front with a new leather handbag, a bunch of Clarins lotions and potions together with an instrument of torture which purports to rid one of cellulite (I'll let you know how that goes), sunglasses, perfumed burning oils, chocolates, divine flowers and a lucky lottery ticket which turned out to be not lucky enough to win me the £62M Euro pot. I feel blessed.
It was 29th April but positively balmy on the weather front with people brave enough to sit al fresco on Mill Lane in t-shirts. As the night was coming to a close we noticed this entourage surrounding a "big" guy when Vin exclaimed "I know that guy - that's Rikishi Fatu". Knowledged gained by university students during late night tv and pizza sessions. He was gracious enough to allow a fan the ultimate experience - thank you Rikishi, you made a Cardiff boy very happy!
