Evening lovely bloggers :o)
I hope this post finds you all fine and dandy, and you've all had some sunshine today :o)
The tomatoes that I planted up a few weeks ago are really flowering away now, all the sunshine we've had of late has really brought them along..
This is some of the plants from the outside of the conservatory looking in..yes that is me in the reflection lol... And these are the french beans in pots outside (with some tomatoes). But they don't seem to have grown hardly at all!
Here's my lovely peonies with one of the most gorgeous smelling roses with such a lovely scent!
My peonies were going over, so I thought it was time that I brought them in to enjoy! Especially as 'Todays the Day!'
Yes, i'm 40 today!
I've had a up and down day. I received some of the most fantastic cards, best wishes and gifts, but also we've had a bit of a down as my eldest -who has epilepsy- has had a very nasty seizure and fall today, and has a really horrible head injury and a few others on her too :o(
So we've been nursing her today bless her.
But alls well that ends well. That's life, and i'm sure we'll have many more too.
I have to harden my heart to it a bit, otherwise it'd be breaking every day seeing her have seizures all the time. Stiff upper lip and all that eh? LOL.
Anyway, i bet you all want to know what was in that huge box that came back in March?
Well, it was this..
Aren't I such a lucky girl?
I'm over the moon to have received such a lovely present! I haven't even tried it yet, but I will tomorrow when the children are at school!
I can't wait. The only thing that scares me is it's called a 'computerised' sewing machine. It has the 'c' word! But the manual looks good, to I should be ok... LOL :o)
I received other amazing gifts too, like this most gorgeous vintage sewing box..
A new guard dog for by the front door....We have been walking past him for several weeks, and I jokingly named him (Spot) so I think my youngest daughter got attached to him and told Daddy they just had to buy him for me for *my* birthday as *I* must be attached to him 'cos I'd named him. LOl
Oh, bless her :o)
And I had this gorgeous vintage bottle to pop on my window..
With the most lovely crocheted flowers on..
It's so lovely. I love it :o)
I got so many lovely gifts and cards. I'll have to put extra photos on my next posts.
I'm getting a bit behind with my blog posts!
This post was supposed to be a sort of tutorial, and I've also been given a lovely award from Little Blue Mouse which i need to tell you about!
And look what this fabulous person has written about me! Honestly, i couldn't believe it when i popped into lovely Jennies blog this afternoon!
I was actually gobsmacked (for a short while anyway ;o)
Such lovely things to have written about me.
Anyway, I'd better scoot off to bed now. We had quite a bad night last night, so I need to get my sleep tonight as soon as my eldest does, before she starts having her night seizures.
Have a lovely rest of the week all of you, and Thankyou so much to those lovely, lovely people who have emailed me and written on my last blog post to wish me a lovely birthday. Honestly, I really do appreciate you and your kind wishes. They really do mean alot to me :o)
Take are all of you.
Love Donna xx
