Last week just as I was feeling quite sad I received an email from my dear blogging friend Hadley to say that I had won her give away! That brought a smile to my face and even more so when my wonderful gift arrived on my birthday!
as usual my photo doesn't really do this justice, the patchwork and stitching on the beautiful purse and key fob is brilliant, the little piece of Liberty fabric will be included in my Liberty quilt when I get to making it and the chocolate...well I'm about to go downstairs and eat it right now!
This was my delicious birthday desert at Raymond Blanc's Brasserie in our little town
The bluebells are out in Ashridge Park so I went to take photo's with my new Canon camera that hubby bought me, sadly the weather wasn't good and so they don't look their best but the smell after the rain had fallen was amazing.
so all in all even though we have been having a sad time just recently, my birthday was special. I share it with my sweet daughter in law and so the night before we spent the evening with our son and daughter in law and her family. I had lovely gifts as always and even an ipad mini but I'm not to say who that was from :)
