another one!

There was another birthday around these parts yesterday. Mine! 59 and counting!

We had a great day with the girls here most of the day whilst Douglas and Jason went to an exhibition in Glasgow. We had the dogs as well - there are videos but I need to load them on to youtube to be able to show them so I'll leave those for another day.

More importantly, here's what I got for my birthday. There were books:

And fabric:

And handles and buttons and a spatula to replace the one that's been so well-used it's falling to bits:

Pink shoes!:

And a pink cardigan.

There might also have been some money and amazon vouchers. My family know me sooooooo well! :o)

  1. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY". Some gorgeous gifts and lots with pink (my favourite colour). Sounds like a lovely day and oh no, next year you have a big "0". Been there for that one and am nearly half way to the next one. Have a great week and take care.

    1. Thanks, Susan. Yes, next year's a big birthday - but I've got a year of being 59 before I reach it! LOL

  2. Happy Birthday. Looks like you've been suitably spoilt. Those books look wonderful and gorgeous fabric. Is your favourite colour pink by any chance? Enjoy whats left of your birthday.

    1. I had the best day, Jennifer. With all my favourite people (and dogs) around me - and I didn't need to do the dishes after our meal. What more could I ask? :oD
