Lucky Girl!

I had such a lovely birthday! It was warm and sunny all day and it was so nice to have a day to just relax.

I love how well my family and friends know me! I adore all my presents - I am such a lucky girl and feel so blessed, not just by the gifts but also, by the sweet messages in my birthday cards. Some were so touching that I got quite emotional reading them. It seems like you can see someone every day and really appreciate them but never mention it so I made sure that I thanked everyone who had made an effort to make my birthday that bit more special. 

I was excited to open a present containing the household organiser and recipe book - so cute!! Yankee Candles are my absolute favourites and the 4 baby ones shown are all floral and garden type scents which is fab as most of those that I already have are sugary and food scents. Plus Tangled - loved that film when I saw it at the cinema. 

Shockingly, I was also given a lot of books! Reading is such a pleasure to me and it has been for as long as I can remember. I have books everywhere - I even usually have one in my handbag. I go through phases with my book choices. Recently I read lots of the classics again but now it is mostly Amish fiction. Generally when I read a book I like to read about the background so when I read Jane Austen  and Georgette Heyer I also read books on society, fashion and even foods from that era. I am doing the same while reading Amish fiction too as I have read a couple of fact based books on Amish culture. Love Ellis too! Such a gorgeous teddy bear! He is a Charlie Bear so he has soft fur and is fully jointed - so sweet and huggable!
