This is proving to be a very good couple of days .... well apart from the bit about being officially another year older.
It's my birthday today and I'm being treated to lunch with my Mum and brother. Yesterday I was treated to a lovely day out with Lovely Hubby. After an appointment he had first thing, we went into Llandudno for coffee and Welsh cakes for breakfast, a mooch around the shops and then lunch at one of our favourite establishments Osborne House.
While we were out I got a text to let me know my parcel had been delivered, as I wasn't expecting a parcel I thought this very strange!! And when we got home there it was in the garage ... a big box containing a magnificent bunch of flowers and a teddy bear, which I have been reliably informed by my Mum, who is the lovely person that sent the flowers to me, is called Spencer!!
Thank you Mum they are beautiful.
I also have a little row of cards on the mantlepiece and, in what Lovely Hubby has called my Birthday Amnesty, during our year of living without books, clothes and housekeeping money, a new waterproof jacket and a card telling me that Rhonda Hetzel's new book 'The Simple Home' is currently winging it's way over to me from Australia.
Totally spoilt I am ..... and another year older.
Happy Birthday - have a wonderful day. Do you think you'll be able to keep the teddy away from the dogs? Ours would love it! xxReplyDelete
They don't shred my teddies only their own :-)Delete
