It's been an absolutely fantastic few days.  A perfect birthday weekend. 

The peanut butter and chocolate tart was definitely a highlight.  I started a tradition a few years back of making myself a birthday cake each year.  It's become a favourite part of every birthday now.  I also handmade cream buns, but they weren't as spectacular even though they looked gorgeous.

I spent time with lovely friends, and lots of really wonderful time with Ms L.

Then there were the presents!  I was so splendidly spoiled with art books, gourmet cheese, a gorgeous CurlyPops cover for my Kindle, some beautiful stamps and other little bits and pieces.

A magnificent weekend.


The birthday sale in my shop is on till midnight tonight.  25% off everything with the code 'happybirthday'.
