Happy Birthday to Me

(and Happy Birthday to Plum!)

I had a lovely birthday yesterday - phonecalls from the family, the promise of a skype from the babies in Australia, a trip to Greenwich to have lunch with Lisa and then supper with mother-in-law. Then I'm stretching it out with a joint staffroom treat at school tomorrow with Jane, and a trip to Portsmouth to see mum on Thursday...and a girly trip to Florence at the weekend!

I got an awesome pair of converse style Levi boots from Brian

and from the girls I got a sewing themed bracelet and two troll beads.

Best was to spend the day with them and Brian. I managed to get photos of Lisa's jewel blanket

and the banner for her bedroom door

We went for a walk to the University campus ... where they are filming a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Unfortunately Johnny Depp isn't there at the moment :-( but huge sections have been fenced off and are being tweaked to fit the movie.

We also went to Greenwich market where we found fab pressies for Stig's babies: as Stig races we thought the racing car would be great for Marley, and mum had just told me that India is into princesses so these two puzzles should be ideal ... and I love wooden toys


  1. A name check? How lovely - thank you! Sounds like your day was as good as mine. All good wishes for the year ahead.....
    love, Plum

  2. Many happy returns for yesterday!
