Showered with flowers
A couple of weeks ago I received this beautiful bouquet from my DD2, it came with its own glass vase and and a box of delicious chocs.
We were going away in our new motorhome, Connie, and I couldn't bear to miss a couple of days without them so I took them with me, just because I could. Perhaps I should explain, since my DH became semi retired we've adopted this new moto "just becaues we can", it seems to fit our new life just right :-)
As we'll be away in France for my B/day I decided it would be nice to go out for Sunday lunch last W/E, so we took ourselves and our DD's to a lovely local pub called the Cider House.
And here I am with my lovely girls, our son and his wife couldn't make it this time, but we will see them in July.
And the girls and their Dad.
I had some lovely cards and presents, chocs, and more lovely flowers, plus a subscription to Embroidery magazine, which I've wanted for ages. I even had a lovely hand made card from some of my Grandchildren.
And from my DH I had this delightful mini sewing machine, small enough to stow away in our motorhome, so no excuse now not to get on with those Diploma samples. It really is a sweet piece of kit and it matches the upholstery in the motorhome. I've read that under the JL bonnet is a Janome and I'm not surprised, for something so small it handles really well indeed.
So thanks to everyone for making it such a lovely early birthday.
