happy birthday to me...
this is me at a few weeks old
and here I think I'm about 4 - my parents are not good at writing dates on the back of photos.
and according to my sister who chose this card this is obviously me now! (if only I was so glamourous)
I got some lovely treats including this great book,
tea and cake related items!
and the cutest new pets from dottycookie - thank you so much!
this one is after my chocolate brownie, which is a temporary stand in for my birthday cake. M&S let me down, and didn't have a gluten free chocolate and cherry cake, which is pretty much the only edible gluten free cake you can buy, so right now there's a lemon drizzle cake in the oven, I'll cut you all a slice when it's cool and you're all invited to my party!
fancy dress optional.

I love the Sarah Raven book - there is an awesome blackcurrant cake/pudding thing somewhere which is incredible.
Well done on finishing your wall hanging as well. With your birthdya as well, I think you should have at least a couple of glasses of bubbly :o)
