I had a birthday...

I had a birthday last Friday. it was fabulous. it was a Friday and I didn't have to go to school. I spent a couple of hours at a end of school year prize giving, then came home to these divine flowers at my doorstep...

 Aren't they stunning?! I get flowers once a year from the husband!
 Here we are - I've a new bag from H&M in Melbourne; new shoes from Marks and Spencers (bought months ago and thrown into cupboard for the birthday) - you know - the gifts you always buy for yourself... and a gorgeous new bracelet from Tracy (more coming about her, as a box she sent back in August arrived ON my birthday - it was really exciting!).
 Some more self bought gifts...

 oh and some more.... (hee hee!)
 The shoes - love and adore and so damn comfortable and so cheap!
 From a mate in Christchurch...
 O - M - G - LOOK - just look! at these. Letterpress knitting cards to give away when I knit goods for people. They are just simply divine! Almost too good to use.... April also sent 4 of my favourite Burst Bees lip balm! Swoon
 And this pottery leaf from my cousin , made by a potter in Dunedin, is just gorgeous. I love it!
 The cousin also sent me this - I laughed and laughed... it already ... might.... be working! Another car load of stuff heading to the op shop. And I've had a mighty good sort out at school too...

Aren't birthdays grand with sweet friends and family sending lovely things. I can see now better for cross stitching with a new lamp combined with a magnifying glass.. pic coming too.


  1. Happy birthday, you received some lovely things. I buy presents for myself too! x

  2. Happy Birthday! Glad you had a great time!!

  3. Looks like a great birthday had. Good for you. Lovely gifts too

  4. Wishing you a happy belated birthday. You received some wonderful gifts and I like the idea of buying gifts for yourself too, I may have to take a leaf out of your book there.

  5. I'm visiting you after hearing about your lovely Christmas swap at Stephanie's site! Happy birthday to you, what a joyous occasion it was for you, such special gifts for you too! Those flowers from your husband were glorious and how special to be thought of by so many people. Happy to meet you today! :)
