Let Them Eat Cake!!



As some of you guessed, my special day on Sunday was my birthday, which this year coincided with the autumn equinox AND the moon being the closest to earth ... busy day! Tee! Hee! Hee! Sunday was rainy and overcast here on top of the hill, but that didn't stop me from having a lovely, if low-key, birthday. The day started with my Beloved Geek Boy bringing me brekkie in bed (no crumbs! I checked!), we then pottered around the house for a couple of hours, before heading off to meet some friends for lunch ... no photos cos I forgot my camera. Bad blogger!! :0) The afternoon was wiled away chatting and watching the rain ... a rather pleasant way to spend a birthday afternoon. :0) No dinner here that night ... a cup of tea and we were good! :0)

Then today, I was treated to a bit more birthday spoiling. Most Tuesdays, I meet up with my dancing buddies Lynda and Deb for lunch and a catch up. Today when I walked into Lynda's place ... there was a mini-party waiting for me! :0) Aaaaaaawwwww!! How spoilt am I! There was a birthday banner, balloons, party punch and yummy nibblies ... as well as ... BIRTHDAY CAKE! You know it's not a PROPER birthday until you've had cake! :0)

And it was home made, too! :0) Lynda sent home what was left so I could share it with GB ... he'd already found it before I got to take this pic ... tsk, tsk! :0) Thanks Lynda and Deb for my mini-party ... it was so much fun and gave me the best birthday gift of all ... the reminder that I have some wonderful friends in my life who make every day so much richer, just by being part of my life! THANKS GALS!! :0)

And a big thank you to all of you lovely blogging buddies who've sent birthday wishes too ... I know I have been a bit slack in replying to comments and emails in the last week or so ... somehow I keep running out of hours in my days! :0) But be assured your well wishes made Sunday even more special! Oh ... and do you see the pretty green depression glass vase in the centre of the cake pic? That was my GORGEOUS birthday giftie from my bestest-buddy-since-we-were-nine Lynette. It looks great with my little collection of depression glass on the hutch and is a great size to pop flowers in, too ... oddly enough since that's actually what it was designed to do!!! Cake and gifties ... it's almost worth having to turn another year older! Tee! Hee! Hee!

The other thing that took a bit of my time this afternoon was ...


Getting up to date with my mailing! EEP! Apologies to the gals who have been so patiently waiting for their prizes! I'm off to see my Australia Post buddy Raymond tomorrow, girls, so start stalking your posties next week. Posties of the world .... BEWARE!!! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Right now, though, I think I hear left over birthday cake calling my name, so I'm off to pop the kettle on. Hope you're all having a fabulous start to your week ... even if you haven't had cake! Tee! Hee! Hee! Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!
