Anna doesn’t celebrate her birthday for just one day. It is an event that takes place over an entire week. Thus: birthweek!
The birthweek girl!
On Saturday, a bunch of us gathered to honor Anna and all her fabulousness. The festivities began at her flat where party hats were compulsory.

While devouring Anna’s homemade focaccia bread (amazing!) and assorted snacks, we played a drinking game. I am ashamed to say that this really emphasized how slow I can be. The rules had to be explained to me multiple times, and even then I still managed to do things incorrectly. I have absolutely no excuse either, because I was downing sparkling fruit juice during all of this. I guess I am one of those people who is book smart – or, let’s say, has an uncanny ability to quote entire scenes from numerous films – but is wholly lacking in common sense. Go, Me!
Sporting 'The Clearance Dress'
Eventually, we made our way to The Faversham for some dancing. I am clearly getting old, because by two am I was knackered and had to call it a night. Coming from someone whose ‘natural’ bedtime is when the birds start chirping, that’s saying something. All in all, it was a great night. Happy Birthday Anna!

Drinking with pinkies up was one of the 'rules' for our little game.
