Thank you so much for all my lovely Birthday wishesl….you see it is and has always been a very special day indeed! for I was born on My Dads birthday! Yes, this is him (below) with my Mum in the black and white pic and also
in the heart picture frame, that is also his Mary Magdalen, that he
always had placed by his bedside for as long as I knew him. Very sadly
he passed away 24 years ago now…a very long time ago, but as you can
imagine, I still miss him ever so much!
So you can imagine that my birthday, is shared with thoughts of him and I couldn’t possibly do this post without mentioning him. I lit a candle for him, as indeed I do every year. He was a great inspiration to me, and you will often find me chatting away to him, as I always feel that he is with me….and more so in this house, as I often can smell the tobacco that he used to smoke on our landing :)….
Freddy always buys me roses for my birthday, as you know how much I love them.…and this year he chose these lovely pink ones…Oh I just so love pink, Rosie also bought me a little rose plant…which I adore!
This was the lovely sight when I came downstairs for my Birthday breakfast….oh yes that is the tradition in the Happy House! Croissants, scrambled eggs, salmon and bacon Yum Yum! Off course I opened my cards and presents first! Thats a tradition too!
…and oh my goodness! what a lucky gal I was indeedy! Rosie bought me some lovely perfume…thats smells gorgeous! so now I will be ever soooo irrisistable! (lol) and Freddy bought me the Trellis Rose Day Bag from CATH KIDSTON that I have had my eye on for ages! and a provence rose card holder…which is soo divine!
All day long I sat in my comfy armchair and was brought coffee and tea, biscuits and chocolates….and we watched films and from time to time played in the snow…oh it felt sooooo special and Happy being with the people that I love 🙂
The weather outside was like a Christmas card scene…and I loved it…tis not often you get snow especially ordered for your Birthday now is it!
(see previous post…might be getting a little bored of it now! LOL!)
Whilst we were chatting…we decided that we should venture into the loft soon and get our Christmas decorations up….we might even have a fresh tree this year…we quite fancy that!
…and we’ll have to start wrapping all those presents up, too, that I have been purchasing! Thank goodness for on-line shopping! Although we have had no post now for 3 days! Eek!
Goodbye for now…My lovely gals and guys,
