It's my birthday

Today is my birthday and I have received loads of lovely cards from of my friends and relatives.   My friend Rochelle bought me some beautiful flowers, a very pretty decorative bird cage which will get pride of place in my kitchen and a very useful Bento box for my days out.  I am a very lucky girl. 
I also received a basket which included wine, chocolates and a rose from my brother and sister in law, Steve and Pauline.


  1. Have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYNNE!!! :o) Enjoy your day! Hugs Jennifer
