Boyfriends Birthday!

Hi guys,
So the 1st of September is a pretty big deal in my house – and by that I mean it’s a big deal to me. I live with my boyfriend and my dog, neither of which are really bothered that it’s officially the first day of autumn (yey!) or that I didn’t receive my Hogwarts letter for the 10th year running๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”
But amongst all that there is also another reason to celebrate which is because it is also my boyfriendโ€™s birthday! Now my boyfriend isnโ€™t really into birthdays. In fact I get more excited about his birthday than what he does (if any of you have ever watched The Middle โ€“ my boyfriend is literally Mike Heck. No Jokes.)
Being unemployed means I’m on a tight budget. So I knew I wouldnโ€™t be able to get him as much as I would have liked however I had some ideas on what else I could do in order to celebrate his day. He was at work for the majority of the day so I used this time to decorate the house in banners and balloons for him to come home too. I washed and bathed the dog so he was smelling fresh before attempting some kind of chocolate birthday cake. Now, for those of you who read by blog regularly youโ€™ll know that I am not the best cook but four hours, two batches later I managed to create some kinda edible chocolate piรฑata cake.

Once he was home I gave him his gifts and ordered take away for tea (he had pizza whereas I went for a parmo) before heading for a family walk with the dog. When we got back, I gave him a full body massage and gave him full control of the TV including what we watched and when before curling up to watch a movie.

Now low budget birthdays arenโ€™t something we wish to do but sometimes we donโ€™t have a choice but there a lot of things you can do that don’t cost money that can show someone that you care whether its for a birthday, Christmas etc. And hey it’s the thought that counts right?

Anyways that’s all from me today. I just wanted to put this out there in case there is anyone else in a similar situation who could use a few ideas (I’ll also be doing a blog post on this sometime soon so keep your eyes peeled! ๐Ÿ‘€)
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
Abby -x-
