I have waited for today for so long and now I really don't know where to begin this post - bit emotional. Perhaps a good place would be to tell you that - IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.
Even more surprising as I was a 10 month baby and should have been born in November.
Look at that cutie. Can you imagine my dad at birth weighing in at a massive 12lb+ in 1904 and I weighed around 7.5lb.
Celebrations and frivolity all round but please take a minute to note the date:
A date that will never happen again. My 'special' day is not 'just 'special though. This is what made me realise that this year was going to be a good one for me, ok, there have been a few hiccups but overall it's been ok, afterall, I've won numerous craft prizes, 2 came from Tim and 1 from Ranger, can't be bad eh? But I digress - I'm allowed that today!
This is why today is so very special to me:
and you get 64
believe it or not but that is how old I am today - I know, you think I'm 45!! Yeh I wish!!!!
Now, how many peeps can claim those maths on their birthday??
I decided to celebrate this 'never to happen again' date by re-vamping my blog. Please feel free to have a good look around it. My precious Toby has a wonderful new place, peeping out over all my posts (it's the original photo - can you believe that?) and just have a look at the background. It's made up of some of my 12 tags of Christmas - past - and celebrated the wonderful $100 prize I won after completing tags from 2011.
I love the colour and the way the posts move but the background remains static. So darn clever, all due to the expertise of my super talented son-in-law, Quentin. Just click his name to see more of his skills.
THANK YOU so much for doing this for me especially in time for the big launch today. Means so much Mwah x.
I leave you with a photo of some of my birthday cards plus a great big thanks to everyone who follows my wafflings.
