My Most Precious Gift!!!

I don't think that you are supposed to cry on your birthday and I tried very hard not to when I opened this.........


and read these........


I didn't succeed I'm afraid.......if you click on the picture to enlarge it you can read them and see why.

Everything back to normal today.
The kitchen floor is covered in piles of laundry waiting to be done and there will be a meal to cook later.
I also want to get a top for myself cut out and make a start on sewing it in between loading the washer and pegging out.
Andy is off for the week and he is out in the garden putting some blocks under the shed........which he has just come in and informed me he needs help with....dammit....I could have done without that....lol.
Oh well it's nice out so a bit of fresh air will do me good.

Hope you have some gorgeous sunshine today.

  2. That's what I call a thoughtful tailor made gift for a grandma. My late MIL loved when we made her cards, gifts etc whereas my own mother always assumed we were skint! Hope you've managed to get some sewing done-my own machine is still not back from servicing and I'm pining for it now! Catriona

  6. What an absolutely wonderful gift!! You must be a very special Ganma!! My son and her girlfriend have a jar that they've labeled "Special Moments of 2017." I think that's a wonderful idea as well. xo

    1. I've also seen jars where people write down good things that happen each day and take them out to read on days when they may be feeling a little down. Brilliant ideas aren't they Wendy.
      I can't believe Ruby cut out and wrote on sixty hearts all by herself....so precious-x-

  7. What a lovely gift from Ruby. You are obviously a very much loved ganma. I think a few tears are definitely permitted on your birthday when you receive such a beautiful gift.

  10. Awwwwwwwww that's so cute. And
    EEEEWWWWWW I HATE it when the HG makes me 'help'. He's a rubbish teacher and doesn't explain what exactly it is he needs me to do, then gets cross and narky when I do it wrong!!!
