It was my birthday on Monday and I was thoroughly spoilt. My sister in law had sent a card with strict instructions on the back which made me smile:
I have quite a reputation for opening cards before the time! This beautiful hand made card was inside
with an added surprise
this lovely hand made bookmark.
I received this beautifully wrapped gift from a friend
which was almost too nice to open but given my reputation for opening things I couldn't hold out for very long
It's so pretty and that handle is so comfortable to hold. I can't wait to use it. My crochet skills have been improving slowly, I'll have to do a separate blog post to show you what I have been up to.
Another friend gave me this lovely metal candle holder seen here with all my birthday cards
All in all a really lovely birthday!
