The birthday season continues

This time it was my turn!  The day before, my birthday present arrived, and as we had a busy day planned for my birthday I was allowed to open it a day early and have a play.  Here is the result of me playing with my new drum carder!  I do feel a very lucky girl!!

The day of my birthday we had a trip up to Wales so that Stan could go and stay with his daughter whilst we went away to a festival the following weekend.

 We stopped off at Shrewsbury where I was able to mooch around a haberdashery store feeling no guilt whatsoever, because it was my birthday!!  And we found the most delightful little cafe on the river.  A magical garden with covered walkways with fairy light, little alcoves, a buddha garden and lots of garden gnomes
 So, refreshments on the river bank, in the sun, made it a beautiful trip out.
 In the evening we went to a chinese restaurant we used to frequent alot, and to our delight the manager remembered us, and made it all feel very special.  We came home and had great fun making videos of the childrens chins with eye stuck on them!  I know it seems very daft, but it was truly hilarious!!

A lovely day, fitting in lots of different places and spending time with family.  Perfect!
