... and I was surprised by a lovely pile of pressies to open. Today has had to be a normal work day as there has been so much to do but once everyone was home and the phone began to ring, it began to feel like a birthday.
I had some lovely red tulips from Sam - my favourite.
A lovely hand tied, hand delivered bouquet from my Mum and Dad courtesy of Charlotte at Classic Flowers Design.
I also had a lovely bouquet from Steve, my printer - we share the same birthday so Happy Birthday Steve!
The children made me a cake yesterday, all by themselves - I wasn't allowed in the kitchen once. I only slightly panicked when I overheard "Emergency, the egg has sort of missed the bowl!!"
But it tasted delicious!
An then there were the presents - as you can see, I was spoilt rotten.
I love getting vouchers for my FAVOURITE shop and I got a subscription to Mollie Makes Magazine from my wonderful husband.
2 fabulous books for, if and when, I get a quiet moment to sit!
And a few bits to start the Christmas festivities. I have coveted the Cath Kidston Christmas Platter from the moment I saw it - lucky me.
And finally I am the very lucky owner of another unique creation by the very talented Vanessa Cabban. I just LOVE this festive holly pin.
Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes via twitter and facebook today and for making my day so special.
Thank you too for all the fantastic comments that are being left on the Advent Calendar Giveaway - will announce 3 lucky winners on Wednesday!
