Happy birthday to me.....

Spent a lovely day with my pal Georgy from My secret place which was all in my birthday plans this year - she is a truly lovely lady and I was very blessed to meet her at a craft retreat 5 years ago. We have been firm friends ever since!
Back home for some yummy chinese with my family - My fortune cookie said 
"you will go to the top of the world"
Which made me smile as I feel I am there already!!!!
Here are a few of the gifts I received this year.

 This beautiful drawing was done by my Daughter and was waiting on my computer keyboard - combining her love of horses and my love of the Union Flag this is a gorgeous original for me to treasure.
 More britishness - how my friends know me well this stunning tin of tea from Fortnam and Mason is wonderful.

as are these lovely tealight or mini candle holders which will have pride of place in my craft room
along with this little beauty - a pressie from my mum so I can listen to the debates on radio 2 whilst I craft.

I  received some stunning cards and artwork as gifts I can honestly say I have been blown away with such thoughtful friends.
My family have also been ultra thoughtful with my Bro and SIL taking me ,hubby and Megsy to see Downtown Social club at The Fig tree in Uxbridge on the 25th August.  As this is my sons band it will be the first proper gig I will have been to see of his and I cant wait.
This is the sort of music my son and his band play

click the link to the Facebook page to hear them play
The recording has been made at a live Young Farmers Hoe down gig they played at in July so I cant wait to see them for myself live.
The middle one is my son if you are trying to guess.
They are collecting facebook likes so if you have a moment to listen to their track and like the page that would be brilliant.
Goodnight from a very spoiled and loved Clarky J xx
