Today I am 44 - and for me this should mean a fabulous year ahead as 4 is my lucky number so for the next year I should be doubly lucky (well I can hope can't I?)
I have a very enjoyable birthday,normal as I had work but fun. DH brought me breakfast in bed and gave me a bottleof my favourite chanpagne and a new book. DD gave me Jane Austin's dvd set, DS gave be a beautiful clock and a gift card to get a book from Waterstones. DH also bought me these beautiful flowers.
My Head of English gave me a bottle of wine (she knows me so well) and my best buddy at work gave me some lovely smellies to paper myself.
Angie (a stitchy friend) sent me these beautiful roses by post,
and Julie made me these gorgeous knitted socks, perfect for the caravan in Wales. She also sent me some beautiful Polstitches perle #8 and #12 thread. Luckily they survived the Ruby attack as she confettied the post.
I am in the JA Birthday Exchange and received these gorgeous threads from Elisa, Anne, Kate and Jane.
and the MS Society sent a thank you letter for my fundraising - you can read it on my charity blog Aimetu's Stitchery.
We are off out tonight to the Wing Wah for a chinese buffet and after work tomorrow we're off to Wales again, hopefully this time the sun will shine.
Because it's my birthday I am having a competition to win a little something from me :) To enter just post a reply to this blog answering the following question;
Which year was I born in?
If you post about my contest and giveaway on your own blog I will enter your name twice for the competition and include an extra chart in the giveaway.
The giveaway details are on Aimetu's Giveaway
Thanks to everyone who has made today so good, happy stitching.
