A big thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes you sent my way, I appreciate each and everyone of them! I received some lovely goodies…Lolly(DD2) bought be one of the most useful gifts…

A new travel mug… You have no idea how often I use it!

The day before my birthday a big box arrived in the post from my Dad, I was gobsmacked, because my Dad never buys presents, he usually sends money or gift vouchers. So I was intrigued to see what was in the box…

A porcelain doll… let’s just say I was suitably impressed! The photo doesn’t do her justice it is very hard to take good photo’s with the weather we are getting!

And the shoes are just too cute! My Mum has been on a knitting/crochet inspired frenzy and has decided to make a crochet dress to add to ‘Dolly’s’ wardrobe! Speaking of my Mum(Hi Mum!) she bought me some perfume and a lovely lemon scented soy candle. I bought her some new towels(that’s what she wanted!) and a couple of soup cups(she’s been wanting those too!) and a lovely jar(I bought one for me as well!) We went to Cobb n Co for tea and had a great time, afterwards we went back to my Aunty’s house and she had made me a big Afghan cookie and 5 smaller ones for the rest of the family, she’s a sweetie!

When I arrived home there was another surprise waiting for me from DS1, but he was already in bed so I had to wait til the morning… I was a good girl and didn’t peek! I was not expecting anything from him(just a hug!) so was really excited to see what he’d bought…

A recipe book stand! And didn’t he do a most excellent job? I love it! I feel so spoilt!          I bought myself a little pressie too;o) Some fabrics from Denise Schmidt new line of fabrics…
