Good afternoon from sunny with blue skies, not a hint of cloud and oh so warm early spring day Suffolk :)
What the perfect weather for a birthday :)
It just me & Little Son here today - he's off as his school have a couple of teacher training days - rather nice as MrVV is working not at home today. We've had a lovely time so far - we've been out to visit my Grandma, Little Son has iced the cake I made yesterday;
We also prepared a roast dinner for later and spent time messing around in the garden - wonderful to feel the sun on our skins and be able to wander around in bare feet :)
He unearthed his diabolo from the muddle of his room.
We cleaned a winters grime from the swing - I thought he might be too old for this now and I might be able to use the space for chickens - perhaps next year!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
To all the lovely ladies taking part in the Birthday Swap - my family looked on in amazement as I opened a pile of lovely pressies this morning at breakfast. I opened more when we came home at lunchtime AND I've got a note from the postie to go and collect some more from the sorting office tomorrow!! So many wonderful things, crafting supplies, gorgeous jewellery (all made by other swappers), things that dangly, things that smell divine and some really gorgeous cards too. I shall be taking photos tomorrow and starting to write my long list of thank yous to you all.
I've also had lots of lovely pressies from my family and other friends - again so many handmade pretties and it would take me forever to photograph every one of them - perhaps I'll do a random selection of some of the more unusual ones.
As we didn't get to Cambridge this weekend and my birthday always comes as such a surprise to MrVV, I am owed a couple of things (tbh I may put these on raincheck till later in the year). However we did get to the cycle shop on Saturday and my beloved bike is now sporting a huge new basket and an extremely comfortable, almost sofa sized (with no rips) saddle - MrVV even cleaned my bike for me!!;
Right - there's a little while till big son gets home so I think I might take one of my many new books into the garden for a read.
See you soon
