Birthday Swap and catch up!

For those that didn't participate in the Birthday Swap it was my birthday last Friday and I was 34.  It was a lovely day, the OH got me these lovely flowers.

H took the trouble to go to Leicester with her Nana and buy my favourite L'Occitane fragrance, Cherry Blossom Shower Gel.  It's a beautiful scent, next time you see a store pop in a try it.

H and I made these cupcakes Friday night - scrummy, though they didn't last past Saturday! 

I have been particapating in the Birthday Swap organised by Lynda from HookinwithLaaLaa.  And this is some of my lovely goodies sent by some very generous bloggers.

The chocolate disappeared not long after this photo was taken!

I've also received some parcels this week as it was bank holiday on Monday, I've also got a parcel waiting to be picked up at the sorting office too.

I've managed to email or comment every one who I have received a parcel from.  If I haven't emailed you then I haven't received yours yet.

I feel throughly spoiled - what a fabulous swap.

This next picture is of a stand I did recently to promote my new venture as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

This little cheeky chappie is L, who unfortunately has just come down with Chicken Pox :), right at the end of half term which means he'll have to have another week off playschool as he is still contagious.

I took the kids to Drayton Manor yesterday which was fab and they had great fun, I'm glad we managed to get that in before he was poorly :)


  1. Poor little mite, I remember it well, in fact I can still smell calamine lotion whenever anyone metnions chickenpox. Glad you had a lovely day, looks like you got some fab bits and bobs there. Are you loving your demonstrating, it sounds fab.

  5. Happy Birthday to you x
    What an amazing Birthday Swap. This is such a lovely idea. It's so great getting nice things through the post. I always remember waiting by the door for the postman to come, when I was little, because there would always be something special pushed through the letterbox. Now it's just bills, bills, bills...

    By the way, I have posted the recipe for my gluten free Almond and Lemon cake.

    Have a good weekend xx


  6. Hope L is feeling better soon! Great gifts and cards! The stand looks great, hope that your new venture goes well! :) x

  8. I am so sorry, thank you for being so kind and telling me. I will make sure I pop to the post office from now on xx
