The Big 4 0!
That's me. :)
Yesterday was my Birthday and what a lovely day it was!
I started out with a Happy Birthday Chorus from my family and some excited present giving. I love how excited the kids are when giving . They both chose mugs for me.
The beautiful Kangaroo scene was given by Little MR and the crafty owls by little Miss. She is learning to give and choose gifts that the recipient would like and Little Mr is still quite confidant that if he loves it then it is to be shared :) I love them both.
I love the box of the Miss peacock owl cup too!
I got a really special gift from my Mr but I'm saving that till the end. :)
At Pre School one of my friends sons presented me with a card he made for me at home. :)
I went out for lunch with one of My Sisters and my Dad, Dads treat :)
Dad gave me a tear jerker home made card and lots of lotto tickets.
Gorgeous Sis gave me this Cheery Begonia, its in my studio!
While I was out I purchased a new summer top and some lovely, comfy, summery sandals for myself!
I got lots and lots of lovely twitter Birthday wishes, DTE Forum Birthday love and there were also text messages and phone calls from some friends and family.
So the big heavy OMG surprise special gift was this ...
I was carefully unwrapping and saw it was a hard cover book with a very non de-script cover. I carefully lifted it and couldn't believe it as I saw Girls Wear Blue Too embossed in gold down the spine of the first book! I felt a bit teary but it passed quickly and I seriously think I was just in a happy kind of shock. Its a bit slow motion in my mind I was overwhelmed with emotion.
He had my blog printed in large format hard cover books!!
Every year has its own title page and contents index. The format is different to my blog but its all there! Amazing!
In the evening The Mr BBQed some Marinated chops and served them up with crunchy baked potato and sweet potato, corn on the cob, carrots, broccoli and Peas.
and lastly here I am with an odd expression cutting my Caramel Mud Cake that we had for desert.
( I think I was listening to something a child was saying ?? )
An absolutely lovely.
Perfectly Perfect Birthday. :)
