This week I have turned 50 .....
We have had a few celebrations to mark the occasion and I have been very spoilt. My work colleagues and I we went out to a Thai restaurant and they gave me a huge bunch of flowers and a money gift card.
Both of the children came home for the weekend and we had a lovely time together, going out for a meal and taking a walk by the sea! My daughter made me this wonderful cake and carried it back on 2 crowded trains from Portsmouth it arrived back safely all in one piece!
My son gave me a book (more of this in a future post) and local wine and fudge from Devon.
My daughter knowing have always wanted a VW camper van saw this kit and had to buy it for me, I have already started making it.......
I recently won Maria's "give-away" at Rosey tinted spectacles and these wonderful sewing items arrived on my birthday too!
Having reached the grand old age of 50 and trying to reduce and simplify things most of my presents were money to put towards doing memorable things during the year - one of these was a night away down by the sea in Brixham.
