So Much Fun

My birthday weekend started with my beautiful neice delivering this wonderful cupcake arrangement to my office. Needless to say these light and very tasty treats didn't last very long.

On my birthday, I opened my thoughtful and beautiful presents, then met up with Rob, my children and family members (14 of us) for lunch. The afternoon was spent in the sunshine at home drinking champagne and chatting, followed by a Chinese take-away that evening. On Sunday I was taken out to tea by one of my sisters and then on Monday I met up with my Mother and Godmother for a lobster lunch down at St Catherines.

The weather has been glorious all weekend, as I'm sure it has been all over the UK, and I can't believe how many incredible presents I've been given.

So, thanks to my generous family and friends and to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday on Facebook and Twitter. I've had an fabulous time. x
