Happy Birthday to me, I’m a 103, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to me!
So then, it’s my birthday 🙂
I was working today so yesterday I took the children out for ice cream, which they enjoyed a lot – though Wonderboy regretted he’d chosen a tub of chocolate ice cream when he saw the size of his sisters Cadwaladers Glory!
Bleary eyed I opened my pressies and gulped down the hot tea. Primadonna had made me a magnificent collage with a picture of us all together. She had also bought me a David Gray cd, that I’d been wanting for a while, and a new mug.
Wonderboy bought me a beautiful ornament with his pocket money, it’s entitled ‘Sister and Brother’ and I love it because my daughter is older than her brother and whenever I look at the ornament I know I’ll always think of my babies.
When I got to the presbytery Fr. Peter started singing ‘Happy Birthday’ as I walked through the door. I was later to discover that he had bought me a fabulous present, Pope Benedict’s new book! Which can be seen in the picture below.
Shirley, my friend, and Fr. P’s dear wife made a real fuss of me! I had a lovely boquet of flowers from the Union of Catholic Mothers, and Shirl bought me a lovely cake, Fenjal bath creme and body moisturiser, alcohol free wine (cos I don’t drink alcohol) and a box of Fairtrade belgian chocolates. I had lot’s of other pressies too, one of which was a fabulous new camera bag for my Nikon. they were so expensive that I couldn’t afford to buy one when I got the camera, so my folks bought me one instead for my birthday 🙂
When I finished work I headed over to my folks and Mum cooked me a beautiful meal of fresh salmon fillet with organic potatoes, sweetcorn and peas and parsley sauce. Yummy! After which I was presented with the following cake! Appropriately I received a mug today from my daughter, entitled ‘Diet, what diet?’
Here’s a pic of me below, hiding behind lot’s of goodies, amongst which there is a card from my dear friend Alexa who was so thoughtful in letting me know she was thinking of me today 🙂
Well, I want to write more but my daughter is now going to give me a facial before we sit down with the choccies, to watch Ugly Betty. So, gotta go!
