It's my birthday today! I've been 27 for 25 years now, which is probably why I find it so hard to act my age!
I try hard to keep my blog bright and cheerful, after all no-one wants to come here and read doom and gloom. However, I would just like to thank everyone who has elsewhere been so kind and supportive since MIL had her fall. Sadly there is very little change to report, she continues to be poorly post-operatively bless her - we're just waiting and watching.
I have received some lovely presents. Firstly from Franney this beautiful Sweet Pea shawl crocheted using Smooshy #Sea Fog. Isn't it gorgeous - thank you Franney.
I LOVE swaps - and who wouldn't when such lovely gifts as these arrive. This lovely parcel arrived from Gilraen the yarn is Posh Eva 4-ply # Blossoms. Thank you for a lovely Spring Birthday exchange.
I am off to Wonderwool Wales tomorrow. The lovely Mr A said "buy whatever you want for your birthday"............ he has no idea bless him. He has already bought me some Clinique moisturiser and a Jordana Paige knitters satchel so I think that's enough. My children clubbed together and bought me a special bag for my laptop, so I am all organised.
I am looking forward to Wonderwool Wales, especially as I am now able to take part in a weaving course run by Prudence Mapstone. I am looking forward to meeting bloggers and Ravellers old and new tomorrow - see you there!
Finally - in true bloggy fashion - a competition! If you would care to pop in and wish me "Happy Birthday" I'll put £1:00 in for you for Race for Life. I'll also be having a little draw, and the winner will receive a little something from my stash.
edited to add thanks to the lovely Linda I now know that I am going on a weaving course run by Maureen Preen. At this rate if I find my way to Builth Wells it will be a blooming miracle :D
