Never looked so good! Celebrations started a week early with a night at the theatre - we saw Romeo and Juliet because a few friends had tickets that they couldn't use anymore. I loved the show, hot though it was inside, and I really loved standing in the archways of the balcony during the intermission and watching the bustle of the city.
I had a fun weekend planned for pre-celebration of Boricua's birthday involving some medieval and engineering museums, delicious chocolate (thanks to the recommendations of a certain aunt and sister-in-law), and Latin dancing. Sadly, he didn't feel that well so we did about half of the planned activities and enjoyed getting to all of them by bike!
We live across the street from a Waitrose grocery store, which has its own (absolutely delicious) bakery. Usually Boricua likes to check for end-of-the-day doughnut and pastry deals, but this time it was my turn and I found the three small, cutest cakes to use throughout his birthday week. ;) I mean, one must celebrate as much as possible when one is married to someone as amazing as Boricua.
The last birthday surprise Boricua had was a trip to the Electric Cinema on Portobello road. We watched the latest Star Trek, and as you can see, the experience was pretty unique. Cinema is kind of expensive in London, and this cost us about the same as buying two tickets to see a regular movie, because of the sofa-bed! Seriously, though. I wonder why movie theatres are made any other way!!
The best part of that surprise for me, besides making Boricua's birthday special, was definitely the cuddling potential of our seat. ;)
