Thank you for all your lovely Birthday wishes, have I told you how much I appreciate you, your friendship and all your lovely warm comments.
I had a great birthday, on Sunday I had brunch with my girls, it is always good to catch up and have a natter and laugh, in the afternoon my aunty joined us for a cuppa and cake, my mum made a chocolate cake with cream, strawberries and raspberries in the middle and on top……………………….it was DELICIOUS, and because it was my birthday I had two slices. No photos, I keep forgetting.
But I did take a photo of the beautiful flowers that my mum, dad, son and daughter-in-law gave me, I put them all together.
I am a rubbish photographer sorry………there are beautiful scented Christmas Lilly’s, White Chrysanthemums, Queen Anne’s Lace, Green gladioli, Red Cockscomb and some green shrubbery in that vase. The lilies smell divine.
I went shopping this morning for Christmas gifts and wine glasses, I only have 5 left out of 8. The shops that used to have them don’t anymore, I found them on the internet when I got home and they were cheaper than the shops AND post free…..yay!!
But look what I found when I was out………oh my goodness…..really
Very cute little tubes of Cath Kidson hand cream…I almost did a jig in the shop when I saw them……..they smell lovely too and not expensive. Everything that I bought today was on sale or I had vouchers for. I was even able to order a dress on the internet that had all sold out, but someone must have returned one and I just happened to be on-line at the right time, I have been after this dress for a few weeks, I even sent them an email asking to be notified if any came back ‘sorry we can’t do that’ oh pooh, I was lusting after it I tell you, absolutely lusting. It was on sale too….I am sooooo happy it’s going to be nice for work as well as going out.
I also ordered this, I think it is so elegant.
We have Kaila’s and Anabelles dance concert on Sunday night, I am so looking forward to it, watching ‘my’ girls on stage. It will be Kaila’s last concert, she isn’t dancing there next year, time to spread her wings a bit and do classes at other schools. She will still teach there, in fact she has two more classes next year, so four classes to teach each week. I will still work there while I can, the money helps and I love the contact with the parents and kids.
I have been a little slack on finishing off the little knitted toys for Anabelle, must get onto it. I have a few bits and bobs to show you next time, I was going to embroider some Christmas cards, but have left it too late. Because I work nights I can’t get as much done as I would like. May make a couple of felt goodies tho’ see how I go with time.
Right, Escape to the country is on now, so I am off.
Huge love to you all xxxx
