Birthday Gifts Galore

Another topsy turvy week has just gone by, which has been the way my whole year has gone so far.

I was due to go into hospital on 7th January to have an op on my leg.  First date they gave me was the 17th December.  Turned this down because it was too near Christmas so 7th January was suggest and I said yes.

The electricity went off for most of the day Monday and off again for an hour on Tuesday morning which didn’t put me in a good mood.  The phone went and it was the hospital to say they had a cancellation and could I go in the next day (Wednesday).  What the heck, it would be over and done with for Christmas and then I could start the New Year afresh.

So here I am sitting with a very sore leg on my birthday.  Only able to hobble at the best of times but managed to take a pic of a couple of my birthday pressies.

How gorgeous are these?  When I got the phone call I had already made arrangements to have a coffee and lunch with my crafty friend that day at Rathwood.  Whilst there she bought me these fabulous slippers for my birthday so that I could take them in with me the next day.  Because they were so gorgeous and comfortable I decided not to take them into hospital (in case they got anything yukky on them).  At the moment I can’t get them on my feet but will be wearing them soon lol.  Thanks Crafty Friend x x


Another birthday gift came through the post from my SIL Irene.  She sent me a handmade Chocolate Bar and Gift Wallet.  It is soooo pretty and very much me, I love it.


Inside pics of the chocolate bar and a little extra pressie of canvas tags.


Just in case you are wondering what Andrew got me … just what I asked for all the Spectrum Noir AquaTint Inks.  YouTube here.

What a little gem and he is spoiling me rotten.  So how lucky am I – who cares if the leg hurts!!!!
