May Bank Holiday Weekend: My birthday

I always enjoy a bank holiday weekend, especially May Bank holiday because my birthday is the 2nd May. This year is the first birthday being a mum and I loved spending the weekend with my two boys. Here's what we got up to...

I booked a pamper package at my favourite beauty salon Beauty & the Beach. The package included a dermalogica facial, gel polish on fingers and toes & hd brows. I was pampered like a princess by Sarah and her glam squad.

I booked a table at one of my favourite restaurants Pesto which does Italian antipasti dishes . We usually only go to Pesto when we're at the Trafford Centre and they used to have one in Liverpool but they have a range of Pesto pubs dotted around and we went to the one in Widnes. We took little man with us and he was as good as gold like always. Every time we go to Pesto I usually order the same thing this time I had:
  • Bruschetta al salmone 
  • Tuscan Beef stew; this is the first time I'd had this dish and it was lovely the beef was so tender and even Joey liked it 
  • Farfalle al salmone affumicato e asparagi; is Farfalle pasta with Salmon and asparagus in a creamy sauce. 
  • Tiramassu 

After our meal it was still pissing it down so we just decided to go back home.

The weather was lovely so we went to a car boot sale in Warrington. After that we planned to go back into St Helens for some lunch but Chris suggested we go to Southport instead because of the lovely weather. It ended up taking nearly 2 hours to get to Southport, thankfully Joey slept the whole way (he loves being in the car). We managed to find a parking space opposite the seafront so we parked up and then walked over to the main street of Southport to find somewhere to get some lunch (at 3pm). We ended up going to Wetherspoons, I had a burger and Chris had a hotdog but he didn't actually order it. After lunch we walked along the pier and got some doughnuts which were lovely. We then went for a walk along the beach where Chris thought it was a great idea to take Joey in his pram on the beach which was slightly difficult to push out of the sand. It took us ages to get out of Southport, stop start the whole way back. Once we got home I got Joey ready for bed and had an early night. 

Even though some of the weekend was a washout, I had a really good weekend. It was the first birthday since having Joey so spending time with him and the hubby is all I really love doing. 

Thanks for reading
