Following 'Birthday Eggs' made by my housemate Anna as well as cake and present opening with the girls, Paul showed up with a big bunch of lovely flowers and a beautifully wrapped Michael Kors watch (Unfortunately I ripped the paper off so fast I forgot to take a picture). Lucky me!
We then headed into London for an early dinner before Sister Act - The Musical.
Although none of the original songs were sung (due to copyright I suppose) the show was loads of fun and the cast were brilliant - they looked and sounded like the characters they played. The actual set was constantly changing and I really enjoyed the whole performance.
We then had a walk down Carnaby Street to look at the shop windows and Christmas displays. Wasn't entirely sure how Christmassy they were but when I looked on the Carnaby website I found out what they represented...
The award winning Carnaby Christmas decorations take on a psychedelic theme this year to launch Carnaby’s 50th Anniversary in 2010; a year long celebration of the sixties, the decade in which Carnaby became an iconic fashion destination.
The decorations are designed by Paul Dart, from the James Glancy Design Agency; “A psychedelic Christmas is a fond homage to the 50th birthday of Carnaby as it was the birthplace of the explosion of British fashion design and its vitality still invigorates the design world today.”
On the way home, we went for a walk down the Southbank which was also lit up for Christmas.
All in all a lovely birthday!
