If you've read the earlier post, just below this one, you'll know that today is my birthday.
Go ahead, scroll down and read it. I'll wait here for you.
You're back now? Right then, let's get on with it.
I'd like to share with you here the card I got from my kids.
I KNOW K picked this one out, she has that knack of finding just the right card for the right person, the right occasion.
the front: OK, you're a year older, and older than you've ever been before.
But you're a year younger than you'll be this time next year, and in fact, younger than you'll ever be again.
Did you follow all that?
the inside: Good, at least your mind is still working.
She really is the very best person at choosing cards for all occasions.
K also made me these:
chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting. They're so yummy, I asked her for the recipe and she emailed me the link to the page.
My brother R, and his wife, the lovely V, sent me this card:
'To a special sister
This brings a special thank you for always being there
you're a Sister with a heart of gold who's full of loving care'
I love my family :)
and this is what Angel thinks of the whole thing:
"meh" wake me when it's my birthday.
