Well, what a wonderful birthday I've had, along with my pals, Jean from www.drossintogold.com and Judith of www.stylecrone.com We 3 all celebrate our birthday within hours of each other, and interestingly, we seem to be "soul sisters" as well. Maybe there really is something in astrology after all.
My birthday this year has been similar to what it usually is: a week long affair with eating out, coffees, cake, presents, a delivery van full of cards, flowers and things that can only be described as "delightful surprises". Many thanks to Gorgeous Husband for his ingenious ideas, and my many wonderful friends. How blessed I am!!
A gaggle of birthday cards.
A while before my birthday, I bought this red coat, although Gorgeous Husband thought it looked like something a medieval peasant would wear. In this instance, I had to over-rule his judgement and have it. I Iike everything about it, except it is a bit short, coming to mid-thigh. I'll have to overlook that.
Here I am at the back entrance to the church.
A close up of the embroidery on the coat.
It has fantastic pewter buttons as well, and amazing pin-tucks.
Did I mention it was on sale? 70% off.
This is what greeted me on the morning of my birthday: a large brown paper bag that had in it: a bag of peanuts, a bottle of Pina Colada, a carton of my utimate favourite, small red peppers stuffed with cheese, and a jewellery box from one of my favourite stores containing silver heart earrings! Everything I like!! My Gorgeous Husband certainly knows the way to my heart.
I'd sooner have these than chocolates any day!!
I hope everyone has such a marvellous bunch of friends and family. Hugs and kisses to them all!
