My birthday this year was a melancholy affair. We had suffered a personal tragedy the day before. But still, Hubby and son did their best to make the day as special for me as they could. I had to take our son to his swim school, so after a quick breakfast I opened my presents. My son got me..
A Tub of Mini Oreos.

A pretty pink silicon sleeve to put on my coffee cups..(from TYPO)

matryoshka doll measuring spoons

That go with my measuring cups I got last year!

And a beautiful leather mini diary for my handbag, from my favourite shop, TYPO.

And hubby got me the Sunbeam hand beater I’ve been wanting for a while now. It matches my sunbeam Mixmaster..

see? How cute is that?
After swimming we went to visit our friend and Moby. She had made me two hand knitted scarves. Both of them you can see in the final pic below.
I dropped into our P.O box on the way home and there was a parcel for me from my parents. They got me a super cute wine class cooler, and a beautiful purple sarong you can see in the final pic.

When we got home I discovered Hubby had baked me a chocolate cake. This is the first cake he has baked. Awww.. isn’t that sweet?.. Literally.. It was YUMMY!
No, I am not showing you a pic with the candles on it.. a girl has to have some mystery about her...

I must give a special mention to my dear friend antares cryptos who made me an awesome birthday post to. Thank you Ant.
All in all it was an OK day. Not spectacular, but then given the circumstances, it was not too bad. Hopefully we will be able to put all the sorrow behind us and next year will be filled with smiles and laughter.
My Bday Loot.
