Today was my birthday …the instructions I was given was to sit back and enjoy …after all it was Mothering Sunday too ….not sure the two have ever coincided before.
I awoke to snow, which I love but it then melted in the winter/spring sun. It was followed by more large flaked snow and then large hailstones …sadly it was all gone by the afternoon …not sure I have had snow on my birthday before either, even if it didn't hang around.
I was given my breakfast when I was ready to eat…and lunch too …and loads of coffee when ever I desired. I received daffodils which always say Mothers Day to me and a knock on the door brought a delivery of roses in a jug from Steve and his family. I have a posh afternoon tea waiting for me when I’m away in Ireland …Emma’s idea I think … and a shopping trip with a lunch, in Edinburgh … from Jay and Vicki….nice to have things to look forward to.
The phone rang and the voices of Ben and Jake...and maybe Olly??.... met my ears ...singing Happy Birthday.
I also got other
little bits and pieces and loads of cards …love the ones written by the
boys …all 5 of them …. and of course some chocolates to munch…. but
pride of place is my new Charlie Bear who will join our joint
collection. I don’t know what it is about them …they have lovely
expressions and beg to be cuddled.
Last but not
least was a wonderful roast dinner …two meats and all the trimmings ….
so many different veggies too. For dessert, Vicki made Red Velvet Cup
Cakes … which I begged to be topped with Chocolate Ganache …well if you
are going to be wicked you might as well do it in style.
This is how she presented them to me .... with Robbie and Kris entering the room singing Happy Birthday.
Now for a card …
No I have not started creating yet …this is NOT one of mine ….but it was made for me …by Kris… aged 5!!!!!
He chose the paper and elements …and the stamps …from our stash. He actually stamped on to the paper and inked edges under instruction…DD cut the bits out and put adhesive on the back but Kris stuck them down where he wanted them…DD helped with the ‘bling’ and ribbon…but he learnt to use the Tiny Attacher for the lace. Jay could not believe how it all came together and the final result he created. …a fantastic job even for an adult …I hope you agree.
It really was a wonderful birthday.
Take Care xx
