It is my birthday today.
  Thought it was going to be just another ordinary day, but it turned out to be a very special one after all. 

I had so many telephone calls before I had even showered  this morning and then the postman delivered a few packages and a bunch of birthday cards! 
Got some gifts from my dear Lady and her family too, which was so nice and unexpected. I was also given the entire afternoon off, (only got back to work at seven this evening,) so I drove over to spend the afternoon with my hubby. 
I was greeted with two bunches of flowers, orange and white roses and white and yellow lilies, my best.  He cooked us an amazingly delicious lunch.  Fillet steak, done to perfection and salad of avocado pear and asparagus,  all my favourite foods.  He had also let the family from far-a-field know that I was with him all afternoon so I got to talk to all my precious family, wonderful, long, uninterrupted calls.
My Gene, he is really the most thoughtful person I know.

 I have come back this evening to so many Facebook messages too. I am feeling deeply satisfied tonight, I have the most incredible family, my friends are seriously precious to me and really I have had such a lovely day!

A few friends have also  celebrated their birthday this month and these are a few of the cards I have made for them.

Ohh and another thing, just need to let you all know that now that now that my birthday has come and nearly gone, it is a good idea to start your Christmas lists and perhaps start a little Christmas shopping – it is really not  that long now till the end of the year, just saying!

Oh Happy Birthday to you Cheryl. Thanks for letting me into your world. You truly did have a wonderful birthday, and family is the most important thing in the world. Your birthday cards you made are so special and lovely. I want to become a follower here. I feel a connection to England, as my husband spent time there when were engaged long ago, and i made a scrapbook of his time there long long ago. He was in the Manchester area. Thanks for the lovely visit!

I visited your blog today, and I thought it was so lovely. I have been married for 31 years, and I have three children also. As I was scrollilng down, I noticed the beautiful red rose that is shown. I really liked it, and if you go our blog, you will see why. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing your unique and creative ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, I also loved the tea cup and post card.
