Happy Birthday .... me!!
I am having a lovely couple of days, Mothers Day was perfect, breakfast with all my boys, great cards and gifts - both bought and handmade and a nice pottering sort of all happens at once for me....Mothers Day and my birthday are very rarely more than a week has been known to be on the same day.........I was in such a good mood yesterday I wasn't even mortally wounded by the sentiment on my new mug!!!!On my dresser, aswell as some uncleared up soil from a pot plant, you can see some of my birthday pressies, including the gorgeous wooden erm - planty carrying thing filled with primula's from mum....she suggested that once I have planted out these plants the planty carrying thing would look good filled with herbs...I said bottles of wine at the same time, which as mum said...speaks volumes!!!My new Cath goodies, tins were from son number 2 and the bowls from the babies...though I'm sure daddy helped...and I'm sure sending him off to work with massive circles round the items in the catalogue helped even more!!
lovely perfume (hehehe!!) and the remains of yesterday's chocs.
I also got 2 new cd's chosen by, ordered by and paid for by number 1 son all by himself...even though one of them was given to me with the it when I'm out :D!!! (it was Robbie Williams, nothing that terrible!!!)My 2 favourite birthday cards....and cutest words of the weekend...
Me: thank you for my mothers day present
C: thank you for growing me in your beautiful tummy..................
(I am still smiling xxx)
I'm now off to return the camera I bought the other week...its faulty (hence the dodgy mobile phone pics....) then round to a friends for coffee and cake, then on to mums for birthday tea and more cake, its good to be spoilt once a year!!

Don't forget my giveaway here.....

And how is the colour swap making going??????
I know at least one of you has posted your colour swap I'm really panicking!!!
Don't forget to upload your pics to the flickr group.....
I can't wait to see what everybody has made.

Happy Birthday sounds like you had a great time and was very spoilt and well deservedly so!

Happy belated birthday.

I love all your goodies and the colours coordinate perfectly.

No rain here today, but weirdly enough it's turned very breezy and autumnal - great for the mass of washing I need to get dry though!

take care and have a fabulous weekend,
