Older Still

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday and miraculously don't feel any different being a year older. 
The girls jumped into our bed carrying cards and gifts to add to the ones from my love.

I had all manner of daft and sweet things including a bag with two pugs on. 

When I felt a small squelchy parcel Little Bun squealed. Neither her nor Miss Rosey were too keen on the wee boy's head wrapped in the paper.

My man fell for him hook line and sinker when he found him and knew I would love him too. I'm not exactly sure what he would have been used for, but I'm guessing he would have been some kind of 1930's shop display. Now he'll live amongst all the other dollies and creatures in our room. If you have any idea what he might have been used for I'd love to hear.

The girls gave me hand cream, a douggie dog pen and a critter for my pencil amongst other bits and bobs.

I also have some beautiful Polish postcards to frame.

A new to me piece of pyrex and two beautiful tins. Little Bun found the anenomes for me, knowing I'd love it. These ones are so hard to find so I'm thrilled.

We headed off early after breakfast to the small picture house to catch the last showing of Saving Mr Banks. The seats are so squishy and comfy, but it was freezing so we headed to the nearest bookshop afterwards to warm up. Temptations of two books were hard to resist. My man found one about eccentric houses which includes pictures of Julie Arkell's home and I bought a copy of War Poetry which I'd been reading in there months back.

Warmed up we headed off to meet my mum for lunch at an Italian restaurant. 
Once our tums were full we had a quick stroll to the Cathedral and lit a candle for our loved ones.  

At home I'd asked for a sandwich, crisps, cheese and pineapple on sticks and cake kind of a tea. I cosied up with my knitting while they laid the table. We munched our goodies, pulled the leftover crackers and played daft games. A perfect birthday indeed.

Once the tea party was over it was time to snuggle up with Miss Marple and the sweetie tin - Bliss.

I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
