50th Birthday Celebrations in Bath - Part Two

rljlowe | 50th Celebrations in Bath

If you read my previous post, you'll know the stress my sisters and I went through in order to organise this day for my Mum - it was all done out of love and managed to come together in the end. Now onto Mum's birthday, the actual day out. As mentioned previously, my car had a little bit of a meltdown which meant I wouldn't be able to drive us to Bath but luckily Mum said that she didn't mind - her car's got more space anyway!

50th Celebrations in Bath - Part One

rljlowe | 50th Celebrations in Bath
So on the 1st July 2017, my wonderful Mother turned 50. If anyone reading this knows my Mum, she's not really one for birthday celebrations, but this year I wanted to make sure that her day was truly special. Well, it's not everyday you turn 50 now, is it? The idea of a big surprise party was out of the question, I imagine Mum would have walked in, been completely horrified and turned straight back out the door again. Instead, she'd mentioned that she wanted to spend the day with me and the girls, and was trying to plan her own birthday weekend - naughty lady! Instead, I told Mum that all she needed to know for now was that we would be going for a day out in Bath, then onto a meal in the evening - just us. But of course, I had more planned...
