Post birthday.

I am getting back to normal today.   My niece has gone back home to near Derby, driving part of the way through thick fog and part through sunshine and then getting home to a dull, damp day.   She has just rung me to say she is back home.

Yesterday I had a really lovely birthday with lots of cards, e cards and e mails - three deliveries of beautiful flowers - sixteen cards through the post and quite a few visitors too.

Today I am busy organising meals for the farmer and me from left overs, changing and washing the bedding on one of the spare beds and putting on a quick blog.   So here it is.

I thought you might like to see photographs of two of my presents which are so artistic and so beautiful.   Unfortunately the stained glass panel has not photographed well but the vase has come out first class.

So now I shall go and sit wearing the jumper the farmer bought me  and reading the latest Bill Bryson book, bought me by  friend G.

See you tomorrow.

Somewhat late, many happy returns, and you looked to have had a good birthday. I like the vase, very original. xxx

Your stained glass panel is like a tiny piece of your title photograph.

I'm so sorry I missed saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY on your special day. So, a belated Happy Birthday must suffice.
How nice you got to visit with your niece. And, what lovely, unique gifts you received.
Enjoy your book!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Tonight I am pretty tired so I have come on my blog to relax. The farmer is doing a jig saw and I did it for a while until all the pieces started to merge into one!!

Dear Weaver, I wish you a very Happy, if Belated, Birthday. I will be sure to remember the proper day next year.

I like the looks of that stained glass very much. The vase is also a beauty. Grand also to have your niece visiting on this occasion.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for the great pleasure and knowledge that I receive from visiting this place that you create. xo
