Highlights

The festival is over and its time to get back to normality. It's always so exciting getting ready for a birthday and afterwards I sometimes feel a little flat when it all comes to an end. I'm not feeling too bad though. I had a fabulous, wonderful weekend with so much goodness. Here's an overview.
  • Lovely presents - the complete collection of Sex and The City on DVD, a gorgeous necklace, Lincraft vouchers, cooking utensils, fresh flowers, handmade cards, kind words and some coloured glass to add to the collection.
  • Great food - a banquet at the Morrocan Soup Bar, French Crepes at Breizoz and a homemade feast made by Mum (soup, chicken pies, baked tomatoes and a ginger ripple cake).
  • Good company - some great time spent talking and being with people who make me feel really special, who make me laugh, who challenge me and get me thinking differently about things, who make me feel comfortable to just be myself, and who always make me feel funny, smart and adorable.
  • Lots of love - a person who spoils me, understands me, looks out for me, sticks by me, does everything possible to make my birthday special.
And now it's like a new year. How appropriate that I am about to start a new job and in many other ways as well I am entering what feels like a new chapter in my life. Don't forget that you have till Wednesday to sign up for my giveaway. I can't wait to see who I get to spoil. I am also still looking for someone who might want to play along with a Pay It Forward so let me know if you would like to join in.

Here's a picture of my very favourite present, from my darling partner.
