Birthday 'busy'ness

I'm really not sure where the time is going at the moment - all a bit of a blur really.
It's been Carnival time here in Somerset. It means our road is closed for 3 days as the Carnival floats are parked directly outside the house. It makes doing the post etc a little tricky!

 But it does mean, you can watch the Carnival from the comfort of your own home.

On Thursday it was my Birthday - 43 this yearI
It was something and nothing if I'm honest. Jeff had Parent's Evening at school and wasn't home until gone 9pm and I had loads of orders to do. The children tried to make it special, with a candle in a slice of cheesecake but that was it. I will have to do something a bit special in the New Year when everything has calmed down.

I was spoilt though. Mum and Dad sent me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from the very talented Charlotte and Kay at Classic Flower Designs and my sister-in-law treated me to a Karen Christensen Voucher and Sophie made me a fabric heart, plus all the above bits and pieces. 

But as I said, we are very busy at the moment! 
Poor Sophie just about had room to do her homework.

This coming week isn't looking much different - I'm really looking forward to Tuesday - I'm helping 'do' the Christmas window displays at Maddie Brown. I used to love doing displays when I was teaching, so I'm looking forward to a day of being creative.
