First of all it was a gorgeous day, the sun was shining, I was raking the front grass and doing some tidying up jobs outside with just my t-shirt on........well my jogging pants, underwear and crocs as well.......don't want to give you the wrong idea.
I got some lovely gifts. Dh got me these earrings:
Along with a gift certificate for Chapters bookstore and a couple of scratch and win cards, I never won anything. I am also ordering a subscription to Mother Earth News and Prima, as part of my birthday gift, just didn't want to order until closer to we move, so I don't have to change the address.
From my dad and step-mum I got money, always useful!!!
From my mam and step-father I got this Spode Cup and Saucer, isn't it pretty?
They also sent me three packages of seeds to spread in my new garden, which will also be pretty and very useful.
My friend got me two magazines which is great, as I am a magazine fanatic. Plus she got me a canister of red tea bags and a canister of green tea bags.
My other friend and neighbour bought me a super Dartington Glass Vase and a bunch of flowers to put into it.
Notice how it is a 2 piece vase:
Last but not least, the kids got me the following, a flower saucer to put my used tea bags on:
A fridge magnet, love the saying on it:
A recipe binder, with an extra pack of recipe cards:
And last but not least my new wellies, aren't they cute:
So all in all I was a very lucky person. Plus me, dh, dd and her boyfriend went out for supper.
