Its My Birthday ... and I'll cry if I want to!

No, I don't really want to cry! It's my birthday, and I have the day off work - it's a gorgeous sunny day, and I'm off out to lunch with my hubby shortly. What more do I want - nothing really!

Yes, three out of four of us in our household have birthdays in February, all within a fortnight!

The children and I have been to the dentist today, but that was OK, no problems except Andrew needs to stop sucking his thumb as it is stopping some of his front teeth from coming through. The dentist has given us some good tips to try, so we'll start putting them into practice tonight!

My husband said yesterday (! late as ever!) that he didn't know what to get me for my birthday. I told him that the portable hard drive we had to get for the computer can be my present, just buy me a box of chocolates or something, because we can't afford anything else really. So, he went off to buy himself a golf game for the Wii instead - there's male logic for you LOL! But then he didn't even wrap the chocolates up for me, though they are scrummy chocolates - he says he's saving the environment (ha ha!!)

I've had some birthday money, and I'm thinking of buying a Hougie board and some flower dies with some of it, and then see if I can buy something nice to wear - a little shopping trip at the weekend I think!

Eleri has drawn me a lovely picture and made me a card (but she's put my age on the card so I don't think I'll show you that one LOL!)

Isn't the picture gorgeous? - I love the way she has put a heart on the roof, and made an iron gate, and even cut inside the ropes of the hot air balloon!! So bright and cheerful too.

Now I'll show you the invites I made for Eleri's birthday party. Just layers of card die cut with my Nellie Snellen die - and I have printed the invitation on a layer on the back - that looks really nice, but I can't show it as it has info that I don't want people to see and I can't work out how to blank it out. Never mind.

That's probably enough from me for now - hope to see you soon. I'm going to enjoy the rest of my special day. Hope you have a good day too.

Love, Andrea xx

It's a hap, hap happy birthday...

may you live to be

a hundred and three!

That was another touching post... and it made me laugh when I read about the golf wii bit, That is so typical of men, right? Atleast he was thoughtful enough to buy you chocolates.

And that card made by Eleri is delightful. Children can be so sweet and loving. I love the heart on the roof and yes, the balloon is done so well with the fussy cutting inside.

The birthday party invites are too good. Love them. You are a great crafter and writer as well.

Happy birthday with love and hugs,
