My Birthday!!!




Today I have had a very nice Birthday. I have been lucky enough to receive some beautiful hand made cards which I will post over the next couple of days, from my online friends from all over the world. My family have given me some wonderful gifts,Troll Beads (Laura and Scott)Tickets to see Blood Brothers in Leicester square, (Carl) Beth surprised me by asking one of her teachers to paint a picture of me from a photograph she took in, I was very touched its a great picture! Mum and dad bought me a dozen twinkling H2O's (as demonstrated to my Dear friend and neighbour, karen, waves!!) They also gave me a bouquet of flowers. Tom gave me flowers and a birthday cake.

I also received flowers, candles, jewelry and a book about Amsterdam from Debbielou and her family (thanks)

Fran, Pete and Becca gave me a box of pretty candles and a funny fridge magnet - Thank You!

Ginger gave me some stamps and a Lurve CD (so I can print my own background papers) Thank You !!

Shirl thank you for the stamps glitter and paper, much appreciated!!

Jaffers I love my happiness stone!

The girls at work gave me a bottle of port (very Large) a hands free set for the car for my phone (hate the in the ear devices) Flowers, and some crafting goodies.

My holiday pal gave me a sweet fridge magnet (Thanks Wedney old bird!)

So just when I thought that my cup could runneth over no more, Karen and Megan arrived. The card at the top of this post is from the family Heron. I love Tomatoes and karen knows that. So I was most impressed with a birthday card dedicated to my favourite delicacy and with the immortal quote - 'Its Difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.' I laughed, they laughed, we all laughed!! I opened my present from her and found that I was the proud owner of four assorted packets of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, vine tomatoes, beef tomatoes and bog standard tomatoes!! Inspired absolutely brilliant!! It was so funny I had to throw Karen out before she ruined my carpet!!!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has made my day so great!
