Long time, no post

It’s been so long.

Almost a year.

Not a lot has happened, to be honest, which is why I haven’t written. However, today is a special anniversary of mine and I’ve been wracking my brains for weeks as to how I could celebrate.

Nothing came to mind.

Until this morning, that is.

It’s a bank holiday here in the UK, and I have a little time before I go swimming with my swim buddy. So this is my celebration – not champagne, not a special meal, but back to blogging! It’ll be short and, I hope, sweet. I’m doing this on a tablet, so I have no idea what it will look like until it’s posted.

It’s May,

It’s my daughter’s birthday, so I have to post a picture of these:

Yes,yes, I know I’ve done it before, but I’m allowed. The forget-me-nots are so pretty.  I know gardeners don’t like them, but I love them.

And finally, I know you’re all dying to know what my celebration is….

According to a friend at work, who has app thingys all the time on his tablet, phone, whatever (!?)… It is exactly 22,222 days since I appeared on this earth! 

And that’s my celebration.

More Gifts

Two more, in fact.  This was yesterday’s offering, which was so enthralling when I opened it, that I forgot I had toast under the grill, which then burned to a frazzle, setting off the smoke alarm, and waking up my son, who was, actually quite generous about it, considering the rude awakening he had just had.  Here’s the gift.

It’s a little sewing box!

Just like tho one from the Great British Sewing Bee.  I love the little stitch markers inside too, will definitely use those for my knitting at some point……..

And the second girt?  The one I opened today?  Well, it was this, a perfect present for a bit of a book worm like me.

A very pretty little book mark.

I am a very lucky girl indeed.
