Day 2 - my birthday, horse drawn carriage, and Windsor

On Sunday it was my big day, my 30th birthday. Asif suspiciously kept me out of the kitchen while he made be a birthday breakfast - literally. It was yummy, and he got me flowers.
After brekkie we got ready and headed out to Stratford. I spotted a crowd around the Olympic Torch and Asif snapped me with it. I have attempted to see the Torch twice before, in Brentwood and Hornchurch and only saw a glimpse both times, so it looked like it was third time lucky on my birthday!
Then we got the train to Windsor where Asif had arranged a day out sightseeing. We walked around the castle walls, and near the entrance of the castle a horse drawn carriage was waiting for us. It was so romantic! The two horses were gorgeous, and we sat in a traditional carriage that took us through the grounds of Windsor Castle. It was absolutely lovely, and I was snapping away with my camera, while passers-by were also taking photos of us.
When we got back we had missed the last entrance to the castle, but we had a look around the outside anyway before hitting the shops and chilling.


 Have you ever been on a horse drawn carriage, or to Windsor?

This post is part of my 30 days of 30 project, where I plan to do something different for 30 days to mark my big birthday. If you have any suggestions of what I can do in September let me know below.


  1. That breakfast is amazing! So sweet!
    Looks like a lovely day. We went to Windsor a while back, we went on a boat cruise. Its such a beautiful place xx

    1. It did take him a while to make and I got suspicious why he wouldn't let me into the kitchen, but it was lovely.
      I didn't know about the boat cruises, but would love to go on one. I still want to go inside Windsor Castle, so it is an excuse to go back and try that too. x

  2. I'm so jealous of your sweet breakfast! It looked yummy! Happy Birthday (sorry it's a bit late!) & it looks like you had a great day! :) x

    1. Thank you! It was lovely and thoughtful of him. But does this mean I have to do this on his birthday too?!

  3. Hello, what a lovely blog! Please can we share your story and pictures on our facebook group for Orchard Poyle Carriages or perhaps you would like to? (Johns daughter) Please do like our group too! Becca
