Whoops!! must change the side bit to 37!
I had a lovely Birthday on Friday. I think one of the most happiest ones I remember. I relaxed day at home, coffee in bed with the J's and Lily on my bed in the morning with lovely presents. Interspersed from visits (and a drum carder!!!! thank you Rob) or being taken out for coffee & cake (Thank you Nicki) then hot chocolate and more cake (thank you Jayne) by really lovely good friends then lunch with my Mum, Dad, Grandad and Aunt. A lovely visit (and smashing fruit cake) from Graham (who I used to work with) and his better half Tina. With a carrier bag of home grown wallflowers (all ready planted!!) and a load of fleece, perfect to cover cuttings in the poly tunnel this winter. (although Lily kept barking at him, or barking in her 'I am talking' type way, must be the beard). It is strange. I really miss working with Graham. I think he, along with his humour kept me sane and it was nice to meet Tina properly. Happy J's home from School then off to work for a twilight shift.
I am so far totally loving my job. Everything about it. I hope that this going to carry on for a long long time! Finally a niche, is that what it is called?
I think what was so nice about the presents from the J's is that they brought them with their own money earned over the summer. Jasper gave me these Jose gave me a voucher from Waterstones as well as the 2010 Country Living Diary. Spotty PJ's. So in the morning I went and had a look through their books. I couldn't make up my mind, so many lovely books. I settled on this . I have missed sewing so intend to do more of it, after all it isn't that I don't have much material is it!! Then my Sister, Grandad and Aunt gave me Birthday money too, so in the end I came home with this and this
I just am so lucky. The best thing of all is I know I am, I think that humbles you in a way. As i have said before, I may be skint but I am incredibly rich in Friends and Family and after all that is all that really matters isn't it.
Take care and have a lovely week x
