Happy Birthday to Me!

Had a lovely day today: presses from mum and from Brian this morning, then we, and Niki went to Greenwich to visit Lisa where I got more pressies from the girls, plus a scrummy lunch in the sun at the side of the Thames, followed by a shopping spree in the Market, and meeting Verity - a fab day!

The outside of the Painted Hall at Greenwich (and my thumb!!!)

I'm posting this on the iPad, and the photos are on the phone, so this could be just words, but photos will follow when I come to grips with blogging while the PC is switched off!! Photos now added (obviously, but I had to resort to switching on the PC!!!)

From Brian I got a sonic cleaner for jewellery etc
 And from mum I got a lovely scarf and some Troll earrings (just trying to work out how they work - do any of you know?)
Lisa got me a pretty bead necklace and had one of her owls framed for me, and Niki gave me a much needed (and perfect) new purse. Between them they gave me solution to my quest to find the perfect butter dish!!

The lovely Plum (with whom I share a birthday :-) made me some fab beaded earrings - with a pair of scissors on them! They are great! Thank you Plum
It was great to meet Verity (miss Ginger makes) at the Market, and I had to buy just a few bits of scrummy fabric from her!

Lovely day - thank you all ! ! ! !
