Marching out with a smile

Well, it would seem this month is going to end on as nice a note as it started .....'cos today is my birthday :-)

I've been completely and utterly spoiled with lovely gifts from family and friends.

Moogsdad went technical and bought me a shiny new phone, that I can use as a mirror to put my lippy on!


He also bought me a book to read to the children :-) While Minx made me a lovely flower corsage....with a little/lot of help from her mother (ie me!). The children also bought me a couple of new cardigans that they chose themselves.



Postie was kept busy too, with a bundle of fabricky, booky goodness from my lovely friend Mrs Locket .



Some essential nutrients and more gorgeous fabric from another lovely bloggy friend, Rachel :-)


....and a package of very scrummy fabric from the delightful Miss Kitty :-)



As if that wasn't enough, the very lovely Julie sent me a bundle of rather pretty fabrics to cheer me up - and they really really do! All wrapped up in some of Julie's gorgeous snow dyed fabric.







Thank you all so very much. All of your gifts were such a wonderful surprise and made my birthday very special.
I can't wait to get started on using those fabrics!

I bought myself a birthday present too and it arrived today. With the bedroom revamp project temporarily stalled at the 'waiting to be painted' stage I felt it needed prettifying. I had been looking everywhere for some bedding that I liked, and that Moogsdad agreed with.

I spotted this the other night - at Tesco Direct of all places....Moogsdad said it was 'ok'.... and it was quite unbelievably cheap....so I bought two sets!

Tomorrow promises to be almost as exciting, as this new toy is on its way.

I'm now looking forward to fragrant nights and days filled with the smell of freshly baked bread :-)

Love xxxx

Happy Birthday! Glad you have been having fun and have received some lovely presents (very jealous)!!!

And as for the bedding? It seems everyone in blogland has bought some of it this week (not me :-() it seems to have been dubbed the Kath Kidsonesque bedding from Tesco! Think it sets off the fresh plaster beautifully!

Aaak! You and WMK keep too many secrets. Bah! you should let people know before you have a birthday, don't you know that is the done thing??!?!

Glad the postie has brought such lovely loveliness and he may yet bring more ;-) (I promise it will be safe to open as there will be no turquoise leopard/kitties)

Happy Birthday Lesley! Fancy that! I didn't realise or I'd have put a birthday card in. Lots of lovely post and the bedding is super. I think I may just have to go and have a look myself.

Happy birthday Mrs Moog. It looks like you've had a lovely day filled with lovely gifts. Your new bedding is fab - well done on convincing Mr Moog - Mr Monda, would have said an absolute 'no!' if I'd have suggested buying this.

Happy Birthday, Mrs Moogsmum!

Will you be bringing fresh bread to the picnic then?!

LiEr said...

Happy birthday, Lesley (2 days late)! What wonderful presents! What clever friends to send you such scrumptious stuff instead of, say, floor cleaner - equally lifesaving and hands-on but not as exciting. Looks like things at home are settling down at last - hurrah. Have a great year ahead!

syko kajsa said...

Sorry - belated Happy Birthday, not doing very well as a big sister!

Hope you are now making gorgeous smalling homemade bread with you new machine - I love mine and rarely buy loaves of bread now.

Anyway looking forward to catching up next week.
