My Dad enjoyed talking to a local wood turner, he is a chippy by profession although works now fitting double glazed windows and doors and has been doing so ever since I was born.
It looked very attractive, there just wasn't much there, a lot of the shops were pretty much the same.
We got to watch some glass blowing which was very interesting, I was so mesmerized I didn't get any photos, sorry ladies.
We spent about an hour then and then decided it was time to go home.
There wasn't really very much that I wanted this year apart from a few books and DVDs so other then that I got mostly money.
My brother's girlfriend bought me this beautiful necklace as well as lot's of other pretty little goodies. I was spoilt : )
Getting money only meant one thing, SHOPPING!!!!!
This is one of my fave buys, taking calls all day, I always find as soon as I make a cup of tea the phone rings, it wouldn't be unusual to be on the phone for half hour, by the time I finish my tea is cold, so hopefully this will help keep it hot for longer :)
New luggage tag, the colours match my suitcase as well - bonus
As I said in my award post I am wanting to learn how to cook so I am hoping this will help.
I have already started to transfer all the recipes I have collected from magazines into the book, hopefully this is something that can be passed down to my children and their children, I'm sure you get the picture.
Today was my first day back at work for a couple of weeks and I was surprised with a gorgeous toffee cake, £25 Monsoon / Accessorize vouchers and a bunch of flowers, how lucky am I????
I was truly spoilt by all those who love me and all those who I love in return. I would also like to thank all of you who sent me birthday wishes too, it was very much appreciated.
So that's it for another year.
