Another Year Older!!!

Not sure I like this birthday lark very!!!
I like the day.........just not the fact that I am a bigger number than I was the day before.
Had a bit of a mixed day. Very busy at the shop and as hubby was cooking my birthday tea I did want to get off on time but spent fifteen minutes sat on the car park blocked in by a lorry emptying somebody's septic bloody typical......I was somewhat less than amused I can tell you.

Anyhoo......I had some fab pressies. Money to spend on future crafty goodies and loads of crafty stuff including a 9,000 piece Cosmo Cricket kit from Deb, one of every assortment of Craftwork Cards Candy Dots, ink pads, Glimmer Mists, stamps, Fiskars Swivel Finger Knife and a book from DD, a Santuary foot care kit from Smudge the dog, Sanctuary goodies from Debs mum and then my mate Judith (Gert) came for her class and bought me the most amazing basket stuffed to the gills with Sanctuary gorgeousness. I am not kidding when I say that I will not need to buy any more myself until Christmas at least. She also got me ready for the heat of the summer with some giant cooler is just the best buddy ever.
I've spent some of the money I had from hubby already on a 12x12 My Minds Eye Laundry Line stack, a 12x12 scalloped card stack, Nestabilities and a border punch. The rest I am saving for another crafty spend later.
DS is taking me out for a meal at the end of the month as he is on nights at the moment.

No new cards to show today I'm afraid as I spent the evening of my birthday vegging out on the sofa watching rubbish on tv and eating chocolate cake.....yum yum!!!
There will be plenty to come over the next couple of weeks though as I am just starting to design all the projects for the May classes at Monks Den.
Deb goes into hospital on Monday for her operation so I would like to wish her all the best and a speedy recovery..........just want to warn her as well that if she tries to do too much when she comes out...........I will be nicking her!!!

Right best get off to bed.....I am really crackered today.
