Week in Photos #155 (Holiday, Birthday & Easter!)

Week in Photos #155 (Holiday, Birthday & Easter!)
I had a super busy week last week as we went on holiday and celebrated both Easter and my Birthday yesterday. I spent last Sunday scheduling blog posts for the week while I was away, it felt good being so organised for a change! I hope you enjoyed the posts that went up. We drove to North Wales on Monday in the glorious sunshine and enjoyed plenty of beautiful views along the way.
We knew when we had arrived in North Wales as the signs had changed. Here in South Wales we have the English followed by the Welsh translation, in North Wales the Welsh comes first! We stayed at the lovely Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis where we were surrounded by gorgeous views and even had a lamb directly outside our bedroom window one morning. 
While in North Wales we did loads including a trip to Caernarfon Castle, Portmeirion and Mount Snowdon. I bought Spencer a lovely car air freshener made from sheep poo! 
We added a night in Chester onto the end of our holiday, as we were so close I managed to persuade Spencer to sort it out for my Birthday. He surprised me with bubbly on arrival at the hotel to celebrate. We had a delightful afternoon tea at Mad Hatters on the Friday followed by a casual Starbucks lunch on the Saturday before heading home. 
Yesterday I celebrated my Birthday 🙂 Spencer bought my presents up to bed for me and made me delicious Eggs Benedict (my fave) followed by cake and coffee.
As well as celebrating my Birthday yesterday I also celebrated Easter at my parents’ house. We had a lovely chocolatey cake which we left quite plain ready for my niece to decorate, my niece also made us our own place names. We had an amazing lamb dinner, my mam does the best roasts. I had the idea of buying Welsh Easter eggs for my niece and nephew while we were in North Wales but I didn’t find any, I then had the brain wave of getting them iced in Thorntons with the Welsh for Happy Easter – Pasg Hapus.
Other food this week has included a romantic meal of lager and crisps in Chester on the first evening, we didn’t want a big meal as we’d had the afternoon tea earlier | a Chinese when we arrived home as we have no food in the house | Bagels with Strawberry & Champagne jam bought from Portmeirion this morning | I’m still munching my way through this Dominos, we bought a huge one earlier for both lunch and tea today. Must go food shopping soon. 
I have a lot of chocolate to eat, I will get around to dieting one day again soon….
I hope you all had a great Easter and ate a stupid amount of chocolate 🙂

    Oh wow this sounds amazing, was following your adventures in North Wales on instagram – such a beautiful part of the world. Your hubby really knows how to treat you and that cream tea looks sooooo good. Wish John would surprise me with that a wonderful getaway (hint hint nudge nudge haha)
