Celebrations......


Many of my gifts are from bloggers... and are crafty related so I am going to share what I got for my birthday....

I was lucky enough to start celebrating during the week

Christine (ChooseDay girl) baked a lovely ginger and lemon cake.....


and gave me this beautiful pack of French General fabrics - and a piece of hanky linen ....


My Siblings in Law in UK ordered a lovely bunch of lilies.  The florist actually delivered a week early but dropped off another bunch of buds on the correct day in apology for the mistake.

It's lovely watching the buds open, and they have a very pretty scent


Kiwikid Sue made this sweet heart mini quilt … all little hexagons joined together....


.. and Shez sent me these lovely Civil War half metres….  
(they are more green than grey/blue they look in the picture)


Hubz spoilt me with this lovely silver chain (just so me) and a soppy card.... 


We went out for lunch with my local Daughter and her son (widget) to a lovely new restaurant at a vineyard just nearby.

My chicken dish was very tasty - and so was my lemon curd meringue dessert


One of the wonderful things for a birthday and social media is the cards, messages and calls that come in from family and friends all over the world.  We did have to juggle times a bit this year, my eldest son was on holiday in New Orleans with his family and my eldest daughter in France with her daughter at a dance competition.  Another son in Melbourne but that's not a big time difference.   A brother in Zimbabwe, one in New Zealand and one up north in Darwin.  In laws in the UK.  

As much as we would all love to be together at occasions like this it is just impossible.

Righto, Gotto Go.... more to come
