|Euan Sporting a beautiful 'Hat'|
My sons were both gentlemen for the day and made sure I was pampered at home, their behaviour was exemplary, well by our family standards anyway! I had some lovely gifts and cards. I might showcase the cards later in the week as they are great, you can get some beautiful cards these days can't you? At school when I was little you could take your cards and show them one by one to the rest of the class, I used to love doing this. The cookies and cakes were very well received at work, the children were very appreciative of their chocolate muffins. I had an eight year old ask me how old I was. I replied 'You don't ask posh people their age' as quick as a wink he replied 'but Miss you ent posh!' He then went on to estimate I was 57! Great! I celebrated my 40th last year.
As I left for work in the morning and was saying goodbye to Euan, he whispered me over to him, my heart skipped a beat with cuteness and I expected a birthday wish and a kiss on the cheek, instead he whispered 'You know on the telly, 'Dick and Dom Go wild'? Well Dick just had to put his hand up a cows a*se to see if she was pregadent!' I am afraid I over looked the language because of the funny factor! (Edit to say 'Dick and Dom Go wild' is a BBC Children's program that is on at breakfast time, Jeesh and we wonder what is wrong with kids today! ) Talk about burst my birthday bubble! He was good enough to model my fantastic new Chicken Tea Cosy in the evening though. My brother and his wife bought it for me, we think it makes a brilliant hat. I also had a Chicken Oven Mitt.
My work friend really spoiled me with a wicker basket containing beautiful handmade soaps, a wobbly Chicken, chocolates and a delicious smelling Raspberry Tea Candle in a cup and saucer. (There is a story about the wobbly chicken, ahem. . . . . I will save that for another day).
|Homemade 'Vintage Cup and Saucer' candles would make great gifts wouldn't they?|
Hippy Witch toadstools and the little photograph of my special old sausage.
We ended the day with a delicious Indian take away, that was spicier than expected, washed down with red wine, followed by chocolate Birthday Cake. Not bad for a Monday Birthday. I felt a bit peculiar the morning after though.
I have managed to finish the 'Shawl Collared Cowl' and I have worn it too! I will share that tomorrow, because I fear you will have had enough of my ramblings by now.
By the way, one last thing, the cow was not pregadent after all.
