Not only did I receive lovely presents from visitors, but some lovely gifts arrived through the post too. A heart necklace from my in-laws, some pretty bath confetti all the way from Sue in America (with a card which I shall treasure) and along with some other goodies this party in a bag from the ever generous Diane, chocolate, party poppers, streamers and confetti!
A big surprise gift from G was this little camera. It's so light, perfect for taking out and snappy daft bloggy things with. There isn't a load of instructions to read it's pretty much point and shoot and hopefully I'll get to use it lots now the school summer hols are here.
I'm more a bangles and beads hoarder, with I'm very happy to report many more additions to my collection since Wednesday(!), than a shoe lover but I saw these when we were in London at the weekend and G kindly added them to my birthday stash. At only a fiver they were a bargain!
A few more books to add to the ever growing to read pile. The 'Is there Life after Housework?' one is from my sister. Some of you may remember that my sister and I only buy each other gifts that come from jumble sales, car boots sales and charity shops. With a budget of £10 she bought me 31 things! Ranging from jewellery, a card game, a jigsaw, a picture, an apron and 15 items of clothing!
In the evening at a local country park T's cub pack were holding a family picnic and wacky races evening as it was the last meet up before they broke up for summer. My sister and my mum joined us and below is me with C just as the velcro band came undone as we were hobbling along taking part in the 3 legged race. Although we failed miserably and S didn't win the race she took part in I am happy to report that T won the stilt race, G won the welly throwing and I won the egg and spoon race. I also won an egg and spoon race on my birthday when I was 8 so after 34 years I still haven't lost the touch!
