Happy Birthday to Meeeeeee!!!!!

Forget about Dot's birthday!

Mine is FAR more important!!!!

Ok, only kidding - I honestly get far more excited about the childrens' birthdays than I do about my own but I still had a lovely day with some lovely presents including this stash of books


(and I have to say that the two craft books are absolutely gorgeous)

All these goodies

(plus some gorgeous Amy Butler fabrics and other treats that my friend Jane has just given me today)

As my birthday treat we went to Corbridge for the day because I really NEEDED to go to RE as I had never been there before. I wasn't disappointed - it was gorgeous:


and these are the treats I bought myself with some of my birthday money


The tin mug is from a little cookshop and I bought one for Mr Locket too, while the HUGE pink French cup and the old printers blocks came from RE. (Poor Mr L couldn't even begin to understand why I would want them!!)

One of my main presents was a new camera that my lovely mummy and daddy gave me money towards earlier in the holiday as I had broken Dot's camera that I used all the time by getting sand in it at the beach. Unfortunately on the day that I bought the new camera we went back to the beach ................................. hmmmm, after a few weeks and a few further beach trips my lovely new camera is no longer working :o(

So I apologise for the appalling quality of these photos that were taken with the cheapest digital camera I could buy so that I can still take pics while my lovely camera goes to hospital. One thing is for sure, using this new cheapo camera makes me REALLY appreciate my other one!

Anyway, I must leave you now and go and sort documents, iron clothes (!!!!) and bite my fingernails even further as I have a "dog" interview first thing in the morning! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrghhhhhh!

Happy Birthday! I'm not sure I've had as many pressies as you have since I was small. I hope you're enjoying some well deserved wine. Now I'm intrigued - what is a 'dog' interview?

periwinkle said...

happy birthday Lucy -- looks like you were well spoilt with all those goodies and I can understand why you would want those letters - me too :-), oh and good luck

Mavis said...

Just a thimbleful,

Naughty girl,cameras and sand just do not mix! Keep a cheapie for the beach. I assume that you are being interviewed as a prospective owner of a dog? If so, lucky you - another person to love and to share your life. I know why you wanted the printers blocks, 'cos I've got my name as well!

Awww, I didn't know it was your birthday. I'm a bit late. But nevertheless I wish you many happy returns and wish you a wonderful year ahead.

Hope your camera comes back as good as new. I do love my cameras - they have become friends.

How did the new dog thing go?!

Hope you had a super birthday!
I'd love to go to RE, but might be dangerous!
I put my camera in a ziplock bag when we were on the beach just to stop any sand getting in - it was sooo windy sand got in every nook and crany so I wanted to protect it.

and Happy Birthday to you.
