I really wasn't looking forward to today after my Birthday last year being a complete disaster, so I've been very pleasantly surprised.
First of all this morning DD came in to wish me a happy birthday, and then DH put loads of pressies on our bed! I had placed an order with DSL and Sew & So for some stash from DH, so knew what I was getting, but he'd opened the packages and wrapped everything separately for me, plus he'd got me a little smarties choc cake.
Then when I got to work they had put banners up for me and when everyone had arrived they appeared with a tiny cake with a candle on for me to blow out!
I got some vouchers from my mum and aunt, and my friends at work, which I got myself a new watch and a computer game with.
Julie had sent me some pennies the other week to get myself a subscription to The Gift Of Stitching Magazine with as I'm on the wagon, so I subscribed to that this morning. And Sally sent me a Gift Certificate to EHandcrafts so I can choose more stash!
I've also had some lovely emails and messages on the BB's from my wonderful stitching friends (hugs).
So today has been a really nice Birthday, better than I ever expected, filled with stash and greetings from special people.
Now, on instructions from Julie, I'm off to watch a movie, have a glass of wine and some chocs!
