MY SPparcel is here :)) and thoughts on birthdays:(
a fabulous multi coloured sheep card:) A bar of blackcurrant choc from the Chocolate Alchemist(none left now of this as I shared it with friends who came round to celebrate Mr Mogs birthday)
A large bag of Morrocan rose/mint herbal tea. I have never tried this one before and I adore herbal teas:)
A cute moggie tape measure:)
A skein of Colinette Isis in Earth, this is so soft and feely and I've never tried Isis before:))
A skein of Noro Iro that tones fabulously with the Isis:)
and 2skeins of Knitpicks gossamer in sweet peas colourway:)
THank you so much SP I love everything you sent. I'll really enjoy playing with all these, you are extremely thoughtful and I count myself lucky to have been given you as my SP
On another note birthdays. Do you find that some birthdays you look forward to and some you hate? This one next Monday I am dreading for some reason. Could it be the health stuff? Could it be the fact I'm farther from my children and grandchildren and they won't just be popping round? Who knows but I know I'll be glad after 21st August has come and gone.
My 50th which was a couple or so years ago I was convinced I wouldn't be here for. Some of that was the fact I had recently lost my mum but some I couldn't explain. I just had this dreadful thought I woul;dn't see my birthday.
Goddess willing that isn't going to happen this time but I've no enthusiasm for the event. Mr Mogs day was yesterday and we had celebrations the two of us. We are having a combined birthday party for us both and housewarming on Saturday. Just a few friends and our new neighbours who are friends anyways. House is 2/3rds done now but main room to do is our bedroom next. Trouble is that here all the upstairs rooms have sloping roofs which makes for a lot of cutting in when you are painting. So unless you do all room same colour it is slow. However:)) I've decided to keep my bedroom white all of it so easy peasy for whoever does it. Mr Mog??? This way I can display artwork I've made and artwork received from other artist friends. It will show well on white
Well off to doctor now I have a dreadful throat that came on suddenly and it appears it may be a sting or bite???
