So I started the day off with The Three Degree's Mum, Charlie and Sonny serenading me the happy birthday song with a wonderful ball of flames cake.
Some balloon's for the Birthday Girl.
Some flowers for the Birthday Girl. Which has a funny story behind it. I wanted to go out yesterday morning and mum kept saying that she had stuff to do. I was like all huffy, thinking hey it's MY birthday, I want to go out. Anyhoo jokingly I said to her, "oh I know you have surprised me with a strip-a-gram and that's what we are waiting for. With that the doorbell rang and I was skipping to the door singing "HE'S HERE!" When I opened the door a much better surprise was waiting for me. A fabby basket of flowers from mum and a box of Belgium Choc's. Nom.. Nom.. Oh I was really over the moon. I never had flowers delivered to me before. It definitely was the best surprise I had. I really love them.
I had a wonderful array of heart felt cards from my friends and family. (Look there's my car sneaking into the picture)
My Kath Kidston Roberts Radio. A gift I had early cos I nagged my mum to give it to me... (This is why she don't buy me presents early, because I nick them)
Lastly the bestest prezzie of all. Dylan my Guitar. Isn't he just gorgey? I can' t play. I'm waiting for lessons. I have learned to play 2 notes and have really sore fingers at the moment. Playing the Guitar is something I have wanted to learn for moons. So now I can learn. Although I think mum has donned earplugs. You tube is really good, I am surfing around there looking at different way how to play, until I can get to my lessons. I think learning to read the music will be harder for me. Oh well I'll let you know how that goes.
So I really did have a wonderful day, so many thank you's to my friends and family who made it special.
Quilt along time now. I have finally sewed up all my blocks and put them all together. I learned that your seams must be perfect or it knocks the rest of it out of shape. But I wasn't about to undo it. Some of my blocks are on the wonky donkey side, but it's ok I have learned this for next time.
I don't know if you can see or not, that the blocks are slightly off. Thank the honey bee's I picked a really fussy pattern, they are not as noticeable when you stand back to look.
Saying that I can see a lot of wonky ones. I don't think it is too bad on my first try. I am super nervous about next week *nibbles nails*
Oh well enough wiffy waffy waffle from me. I'm off to do a bit of crochet, yes I'm still at mum's blanket. Though I can't wait to finish it. All the little piles of hexagons look really cosy and rich.
Have a fabahhhhh day xx
