Birthday week gala festivities
It was my birthday this week. And somehow it did kind of stretch itself out all week like some kind of gala event. I had sanity sewing circle with the girls and was given handmade gifts and a wonderful hand created cake.
I wangled my way out of cooking for three nights in a row as we had dinner out with family from interstate, girlfriends and Legoman and the kids. I haven't been in my kitchen long enough to road test my pyrex presents.
I even managed to squeeze in some op shopping and came home with a spectacular pile of corduroy. I have had corduroy love since I was a little girl, one day I will share my whole floral stash.
And my mum fought off other crazy possessed women desperate to bag the last one of these on sale in Laura Ashley.
Nothing better than getting a few gifts that you really really love.
I'm off to stack my pyrex, plump a few cushions and finish cleaning that wonderful present from the Salvos that my boys brought home in the trailer. Linking up with all the other thrifty finds care of Sophie.
