I got the best surprise yesterday. Some of my wonderful blogger friends had co-ordinated a strike attack and I found some lovely birthday posts just for me! I was blown away! It ended what was a pretty good day just perfectly. Although, I WAS very full with two helpings of White Chocolate Mud Cake..... which made fluttering from one post to another very difficult.. LOL!
Anyway.. firstly I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes, in particular these guys... (who I pretty much adore now..lol)
antarescryptos , or as I affectionatly know him, Ant, wrote me a lovely post and made me this:
Thankyou so much Ant, your friendship and thoughtfullness is so very much appreciated more than you know.
I even had a wordfuse made for me by dbs at think.stew . dbs' wordfuses are famous and I was honoured to have one made about me..lol!
Thankyou, homie for being the best cyberfriend I could ask for.
I was next ambushed at VinnyC's who wrote a laugh out loud post and drew this:
I nearly fell off my chair after seeing this! I am still wondering how he managed to get her so anatomically correct, AND wearing a dress in one of my favourite colours..... Thankyou Vinny! You make me laugh every time I go to your page.
Thankyou for the birthday wishes from the always thoughtful, and thought provoking Loach, It was extreemly nice of you to mention me on your Friday post :)
finally the lovely paul reminded us that we all should have a little sprite in our lives, and to believe in the magical.
Paul, you are one of the nicest people I have the good grace to know. Thankyou for being who you are.
Thankyou to you all again, from the bottom of my heart. You guys totally rock!
Now I am all guessing you want to know what else I got for my birthday?. well, naturally I took pictures...
my son got me the pack of fine lined artist pens I've been wanting:
And because he knows I love Hello Kitty and buys me something of hers for my birthday and christmas every year, he got me a new gym towel...
Hubby, being the wonderful man he is bought me this!
A Sunbeam Cafe Series Mixmaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is so cool. All steal, no plastic bits, three different beaters, 850 watt twin motor, steal bowls. It's just like the one my Mum had when I was little. Except hers was green. These are usually around $400 but hubby found it for less than half the price! I love her. (her name is Felicity, yes I name EVERYTHING)
I also bought myself a pressie. I found this journal, and, because I love writing, this book just suited me to a tee! It's called "Vs" and on every page are two examples. you choose one and then write about your choice underneath. After, you turn the book upside down and they have analysed your choice for you. Some of the V's are,
Love Vs Lust
Viking Vs Samari
Healthy Vs Wealthy
Clothed Vs Naked
Nirvana Vs Pearl Jam
Denial Vs Acceptance
and so on, there are heaps. I can't wait to start filling it in..
We went out to dinner at my favourite all-you-can-eat place called "Mihi". My sister in law and her family came to. Thankfully Hubby's mother did not. They gave me a cool coffee eco mug, and a boxed tea serving set with cute cupcake motifs on it.
All in all it was a nice day, made all the better because I had my parents there, and because of all of you wonderful people here on blogger.
Thankyou for making my birthday a most enjoyable one indeed.
