Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

And the spoiling continues ...

... Yup, the mail man is getting overworked this week - I have yet another wonderful surprise gift from a blogging pal, KarenV ... a most wonderful chart from my wishlist, "Accessoires l'oiseau bleu" by Au Fil des Reves. This chart is even nicer in person than it looks on their website. I do love my birdies at the moment :D And the great thing is that the finishing instructions are in English, but I can have fun deciphering the rest of the chart in my minimal french. Karen, I really love it - thank you so very very much. I'm just gob-smacked by the friendship and generosity of my blogging friends - you're awesome! And it's turning this birthday milestone into one of the best I've had :)

And thanks for all the supportive comments everyone leaves - it really is lovely to receive feedback from everyone ... it's the bright highlight of my day. Hugs to you all :))

A couple of people have asked when the 'official' day of my birthday is - so here goes ... The day I officially turn the corner to the naughty-40's is the 16th of February (so I'm only dragging my birthday celebrations out for a week heehee). And I finally heard back from Ben so we can go ahead and start organising our combined birthday bash, since Dracula's got cancelled. We're off to dinner at a venue yet to be decided on the 25th of February ... OK, looks like I'm going to be dragging my birthday celebrations out a bit longer ... hahaha.

Anyway, time to head off as I need to do a couple of errands for Mum before she finishes packing, as it's her last night here tonight. As much as it will be nice to get my routines etc back to normal, I'm gonna miss her like heck - but I'll be seeing her in May when I fly over for her 70th birthday celebrations :)
