It is my birthday today!

A big thankyou to Donna at Chookyblue for the birthday announcement. Thank you to those of you who have already sent me birthday wishes.

I showed you recently the two books I received from Russ via Amazon - the Civil War Diary Quilt and the Civil War Love Letter Quilt. Well today I got this beautiful bunch of flowers from Russ and the girls. My SIL Gaye is here too and she gave me a gift voucher to spend on myself.


I have been involved in a Birthday FQ Swap this past year so it was my turn to get the parcels! Some are still in transit but today I got to open all these.......

And these were the goodies waiting inside.

Russ was in charge of breakfast this morning. He made some pancakes to start with (mostly for the girls), and then a toasted bacon and egg sandwich for me!
The feathers are a present from Chanel for my birthday. She 'found' them on an art project in Charlotte's room!! Shhh don't tell Charlotte!
Tonight we are going out to dinner with my parents and my nan.
