I had a Birthday!

It was over a week ago now... where do the weeks fly to... what am I saying... where do the years go?

I had a lovely birthday with my family. Adam  came round after work, then Andy and Adam made a lovely Mexican meal to celebrate the day. Unfortunately no photos were taken, but I can still show you some of my lovely presents.

This is so sweet, and plays Over the Rainbow, from my thoughtful husband.





Beautiful flowers as a lovely surprise from my beautiful sister and her family (not the best photo, the colours are gorgeous and vibrant). Just right to go in my new jug :)


I was so excited by this, a Sharp Crochet Hook. Andy bought it from America especially, my wonderful husband! It comes with a handy little book with ideas and patterns and means I can crochet borders onto everything without having the fuss of having to pierce holes first.



 They have a website and facebook page full of ideas too.

Also, here are some of the lovely books...


Hmmm... not sure if Andy's trying to tell me something here...


I do love the Amazon wishlist...



It's so nice having a grown up son too, Adam bought me some lovely jewellery


and thoroughly spoilt me with lots of bits and pieces, including some cds of The Drifters and this one here



Imogen knows the way to her mum's heart and treated me to a big box of milk chocolates... yum! Just right for munching through while watching a good film.

Take Care

  7. Belated birthday wishes to you! I love all your prezzies!
    I have heard about that crochet hook on another blog. Let me know how it works out for you. I have put a crochet edge on a hankerchief but I just poke a hole with a thin crochet hook, it must be easier with the hook that you now have. When I did my hankerchief, my fingers really hurt afterwards!
    Love those flowers too, by the way!

  12. Happy Birthday! What a wonderful selection of gifts, especially the books, I like the look of those!

    That sharp crochet hook is genius. I've always wondered how you crochet into fabric, and now I know...
