Who was a lucky gal?

Well yesterday was a wonderful day filled with the most gorgeous people I know. First we met at 10am with Michelle, Glynis, Elaine, Bee, Dee, Mum and Sis Amy for a wetherspoons breakfast we chatted and laughed and I opened the most gorgeous pressies and being from crafters there were some fabulous home made gifts too I loved them!
At 12 we set off to Kanban in Shipley where I stocked up on card and card blanks then we had a cuppa in the waiting room - they are sooo friendly there.
After that we went to the Range in Bradford I had never been so did not know what to expect but I loved wandering and browsing not particularly the craft bits but I did buy some alterables from the gifty area.
Then we went back to Elaines house for coffee and choccy biscuits (this was not a healthy eating day!). Then as I arrived home my Bro, his wife and my Nephew and Niece arrived to sing happy birthday and I was presented with the cake by my Sis Amy. Our Amy has downs syndrome, she came to live with us at 3 weeks old, a tiny crap of a thing, but we fell in love with her so she was adopted into our family when she was 8. Amy had turned down a night out at a disco to be with me on my birthday - she has a strong sense of family- and she made this cake for me. How cool is that? It was gorgeous too so light and fluffy.
Then at 8pm we all sat down to a chinese banquet - It was gorgeous but far too much it will feed another 4 LOL and 2 bottles of red wine. I had a wonderful day - the people who shared it with me are very special to me - Thank you folks x
I also received some gorgeous work via internet buddies so thanks to crafty Vonx, Meggymay, Julye, Mels, Ali, Emma, Sally, Zoe, and Sue. Hubby is picking up a parcel from the PO later from the gorgeous Bobs so I have another surprise yet to come x Huge thanks for thinking of me I am so touched x
