Chocolate anyone?


I thought you might like to see my birthday cake - ordered all the way from Scotland and absolutely delicious! (Sorry the picture is dark - I didn't take it!)

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. I had a lovely day (well, a lovely two days really) - the best birthday I've had for years. Yesterday was very quiet but Martin cooked me a lovely brunch and then we went round to my birth parent's for a barbecue. We took the cake with us for dessert!

I spent most of the day stitching and admiring my birthday present. The stitching is the start of Bluebird's Message and the present is a Pandora bracelet from Martin and beads from several of my NZ family. Isn't it lovely? Lots of animals on it so far of course.


P.S. And the best birthday present was the news that the tenants in our house in the UK are moving out! Hooray! At one point we thought we might have problems getting rid of them and be homeless, but it looks as if they'll be gone when we get back and all will be well.

    I love your Pandora bracelet. I got one this year too(as an early birthday present, my birthday was at the end of February); I just love them.
