It’s my birthday today
I’m older than yesterday
All my friends are coming over to play
And they’ll all sing Happy Birthday
This song is mandatory listening on any-one’s birthday in the Matching Peg’s Household, and I have to go on record to say that this is a wonderful kids CD, and I love it.
So I did wear my new birthday outfit today, and enjoyed feeling dressed up for once, and what a lovely day it was.
So my day started with being woken up by the kids (of course) with a brown paper package, tied up with string.
And inside was this…….
So my husband was actually listening to me the other day, and I scored a proper artists set of watercolours, Woo Hoo!
Some of my lovely friends held a morning tea for me (thanks for your wonderful hospitality Debbie) and gave me some beautiful gifts. The beautiful Gerberas are from Leigh, along with a very lovely card. Debbie had been crafting up a storm with some sun printed fabric she made (seen below) as well as a fabric postcard (bottom left) and a most exquisite scarf that she felted herself (above right). I was truly overwhelmed.
My mother took both Michaela and I out for lunch at a nursery not far from us that has a cafe, gift shop and duck pond amongst the plans for sale. We had a very scrumptious lunch and I couldn’t help but purchase a few small plants to put in our garden. I snagged a couple of pots of hardy French Lavender, as well as 3 pots of a very tolerant native daisy that is also a lavender colour. Mum had already given me some pots of Lambs Ears which I am looking forward to planting, and I couldn’t resist a pot of pansy’s in a lovely antique colour. Michaela was thrilled with the fact that one of the ducks tried to nibble my finger when I wasn’t forthcoming enough with the duck food, (it didn’t hurt) it was the highlight of her day.
Tonight we had a lovely dinner together and another Pavlova “birthday cake” thanks to our non-functional oven (to be fixed on Monday). So overall I had a wonderful day, and feel like such a lucky person, if this is what 34 feels like, than I think I like it!
