I had a birthday today. Not a special one really worth celebrating, but a birthday all the same. The girls came over for morning tea and the kids played peacefully, giving us a chance to have a chat, some cake and a sneaky glass of champagne.

The evening, Tools came through with the goods, although at 10 past 7 this morning I did think that he had forgotten. He cooked me a great dinner, made a card with the Rooster and got me this little beautyMany, many things I'd like to try with my new friend. I have a craft space taking shape at the top of the stairs right where Missy use to sleep (I promise there was no ulterior motive to the move downstairs over the weekend) and a little stash of material just waiting to be made into something lovely.


  1. Happy Birthday Monique - I hope you had a lovely day. What a fantastic present - you will love it. I cant wait to see your first (of many we hope) creations.

  2. Many happy returns of the day Mon! What a lovely gift, with such potential for being creative. Now all you need is the spare time!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you had a super day - every birthday is special - so I hope you enjoyed it and were pampered as you deserve.

    Fantastic gift, can't wait to see what you whip up!

  4. Every birthday is special and worth celebrating! I hope there was cake and balloons and decorations for you. Your sewing machine looks awesome, and I'll bet you start making some pretty amazing things soon.
