Birthday Girl

blogged by me domestic goddess On 12/15/2008 02:24:00 PM

Yes that was me yesterday. I have turned the ripe old age of 39!! Despite the sad news we received the previous night, the girls and Peter made my day special. It started with pressies in bed and a huge mug of coffee that Izzy made me. We then got dressed and visited family to give our condolences. At Nana's , the girls and Peter gave me a very pretty birthday cake. The first and I was overjoyed. Then we went to see some friends in concert.
Near the end of the concert , Peter had arranged for this 50 piece concert band to play me happy birthday, how sweet was that! i did take my camera and took some photos for their website, and also had a chat with the conductor to see of they needed any new flautists. Why you may ask, ah well I do play you know. Not for many years I have to admit. But he said yes, so i am going to get the old girl out, give her an MOT, as she desperately needs new pads, and have a little practise, especially those high notes! and pop on over for band concert on Tuesday nights!

After the concert we went for dinner at Pizza Express, then home. All in all a wonderful day!
Just because it's Christmas , here are a couple of photos of my Angels. the first is the new addition to the family!

Pencil Lines went live last night with Brenda Hurd and a festive sketch by Michelle. We also have a great competition for our digital scrappers, so do get yourselves over and check out whats up for grabs!

I used MM Falala papers and embellies and Scenic Route embellies, as well as Elles Studio Vintage Christmas tags.

I was supposed to be over in Wellyn today with Sue. Unfortunately I have Izzy off sick with the rotten sickness bug and have had to cancel until Wednesday. We need to keep Izzy away form Lilly, LOL and keep me well for Thursday! Izzy and I have spent the afternoon curled up on the sofa watching Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride". Love the animation style of Tim Burton's films.

I am going to love you and leave you.
Thanks as always for stopping by
