My once a year day

Just as well birthdays only come once a year. I had a wonderful day yesterday but rather than being TOO wordy, I'll just give you a little look at some of the things I did ....

After a quick visit to Spotlight to stash-up and use my 10% birthday discount and the $20 gift card I won at the Knit4Charities confab, it was off to lunch with my very good friend L to this great little place ..

... its like stepping back in time and I highly recommend it as an excellent eating place and a great place to browse. To find out more click here.

Received some lovely gifts from my girls ..

... this beautiful Lollypots bouquet (chocolate hearts) and some gorgeous yarn ..

My friend gave me a very pretty Australian china coffee mug, some delicious looking home-made marmalade and she also made me this very more-ish cake ..

Finally, it was out to dinner with the family to end a perfect day.

Crochet and knitting has been on the back burner for a couple of days so I really must get a move on so I'll have something to show for the blog-a-long post on Sunday.
