It’s Only My Birthday!

I’m not one to shout from the hills about my birthday (she says, creating a whole post dedicated to that very subject!) but today was nice. Nothing special, just nice. I got lots of cards from family and friends which always makes you feel special.

My amazing husband brought me a piece of original art from San Francisco ‘and’ a T-shirt that says “Reality is for People Who Can’t Handle Science Fiction” – what’s not to like?

I got these beautiful flowers (including the essential ornamental cabbages) from my bestest friend. Plus a spa voucher from the guys at the office!

And…this beautifully handmade garden centre voucher. This one intrigues me. I love the fact that I have developed ginger hair and I’m carrying a pitchfork for some reason. Lovely!

    So what are you going to get from the garden centre with your voucher for 25 pounds??

    I was out in the garden yesterday, raking up all the leaves, and boy am I aching today!! We haven’t been in the garden for a few weeks as there was nothing to do since we cleared everything away. It was good to be out there again – but I’d forgotten all the aches and pains that follow!!

  6. Hope you got our card
