My 44th Birthday.................

I turned 44 on Monday and feel so blessed for everything that has come my way in those 40 odd years. I had a very safe,happy childhood,met and married my husband who treats me like a princess and I know sometimes it looks like I don't appreciate him but I do.I've had my gorgeous girls and have made lots of wonderful friends along the way, including my lovely  blog friends.
 I went shopping during the day with my girls,mom,sister and baby niece,I treated them all to a full english breakfast,mmmm,then the shopping began.I bought myself a wide legged jumpsuit,full on 70's style, for the night out.On the evening we met some friends and went for a meal,we all had a great time and Di bought a birthday cake for me and Paige (her birthday is on Thursday) everybody sang Happy Birthday,I loved it and there were lots of silly photo's taken on the mobile phones.

*warning photo heavy post*




Here's my  present off my hubby and girls, which was a real surprise, I kept saying I'd love a teepee ever since I went to my friends birthday party last month and they'd got one in the garden. This one is a Cath Kidston TeePee and I love it. I think Mick might be trying to get rid of me,every night he says I should sleep in it and try it out !!! Paige and I are off to the seaside next week so I will be taking it with us.







Here's some more of my prezzies from my lovely friends and family.

 Libby and Rach bought me a gorgeous scrapbooking kit and a Cath Kidston mug in a tin for the crop.


Cath Kidston bag from Di,Dunc and family.

  Books from My Girls


An extra large Cath Kidston mug,CK diary and some CK tissues from Kerry.

Paper weight and necklace which matched my jumpsuit perfectly from Michelle,Colin & family

 CK pin cushion from my little friend Bella

a beautiful Monsoon basket also from My Girls

 Then this morning the postman knocked the door with a parcel from the lovely Kirsty,all the way from Vegas.

I was so touched that she thought of me especially knowing I love anything from Tim Holtz,she sent me an extra large Configurations Print Tray,I can't wait to make a start on it.She also sent me the gorgeous card,thank you so much,Kirsty, I love it !!!!
I had so many beautiful handmade cards from my friends and would like to thank everyone for all the cards and presents. I had a wonderful birthday !!!!

It looks like you've been spoilt rotten and you deserved it. I am so happy to read you had a wonderful day. I loved the pictures but the things you wrote were lovely to read too. I can imagine that you fell blessed with eveything you have. (me too; I feel privileged with my life too) But I know for sure that you've worked hard it for it too. Enjoy the gifts; especially the gift from Kirsty. Such a sweetheart....
