Had a quiet birthday last week. DS offered to make me a train cake which was sweet of him. I asked him what presents I should get and he was of the opinion that I would like Molly and some other of the Thomas friends! LOL! So cute. I'm sure he'd love me to get them for my birthday just so he could play with them.
In any case, no trains turned up but I still was thoroughly spoiled!
I got a lovely tea set plus 2 matching mugs (not shown).
And a sponge cake from an elderly friend Ena who makes the best sponge in West Auckland.
Had to be quick to get this photo because DD was hovering and eyeing up the cake!!!
Some perfume. Normally I prefer to buy my own but it's difficult to argue against Dior. ;-)
My Mum made me another quilt. I so love the colours in this one. It's really me.
A cookbook I've been wanting for ages. :-)
A food processor from DH thanks to the Visa Reward shop. I do have one that we inherited from the ILs. It is ancient and the plastic is starting to go brittle & has a few cracks. Plus I managed to break the grater/shredder plate holder trying to grate some parmesan so it only does chopping jobs. Which is fine... but I missed the other options. Anyone want an elderly Braun food processor that still goes? Might be good for a bach. Think I'll see about free cycling it.
Also got some new Cuttle bug embossing folders - Stylised Flowers, Swiss Dots and Perfectly Paisley. A friend gave me some BG Boxer rub ons and glazed brads. So cool!
Spent Friday night and Saturday making some cards. I borrowed some of my friend's Stampin' Up stamps as well as my own stuff.
One thing I discovered is that shimmer sheet goes through the Cuttlebug like a dream and looks awesome!
