Sunday I celebrated my 50 Birthday.
What an amazing day I had.
Years ago I used to think 50 was old and even my kids are
"Wow mum your 50, you can reap the benefits of Saga now."
Not sure how I'm supposed to feel, but I don't feel any older or
Someone told me 50 is the new 40 and I thought that sounded
probably about right.
I feel I was terribly spoilt Sunday.
I was taken out for Breakfast.
I went to a beautiful yarn shop, that my Helpful Hubby spotted on
his way to work one morning and thought it would be a surprise
I went to Hobby Craft as I had some vouchers to spend
and bought a couple of books.
My son Aaron and his wife Abby bought me a beautiful
necklace with Flynns thumbprint on it. Aaron took the impression
when little'un was a week old and had the necklace made.
I will show you a photo later as I'm having issues getting it off.
My oldest daughter Jess and her partner are taking me and Helpful
Hubby to a show of my choice in London.
That'll be a hard decision as there are so many good shows
out at the moment.
Was what my youngest daughter Amie and her partner gave me.
I don't know if you can see it properly as my picture taking
is rubbish, but it's a Witches hat that she knitted and wrapped.
This was the clue to my present.
A trip to Harry Potters World.
I've wanted to go for ages, but I just haven't got round to it.
Which was good really as it's a brilliant present.
In the evening we met up with all the family and went out for dinner.
On the table was this beautiful cake.
Aaron and Abby made this, it took them 3 days to bake and decorate.
I was hugely impressed, I thought it was a shop bought one.
It has buttons and butterfly's and flowers.
And it tastes so yummy.
Also this was the first year I received a Nanny card.
I found that quite teary, not sure why. But when I opened it
I felt quite emotional.
I have to say I think it was the best Birthday I have ever had.
I had loads of cards and flowers.
I had so many presents and they were just what I wanted and
the meal out with everyone was amazing.
I sat back and looked at everyone and thought how
lucky and proud I am to have such a wonderful caring family.
Thank you all for making my day special.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend too.
