First of all I would like to say thank you so much to everybody who wished me a happy birthday on the blog and on twitter. I got a lots of lovely presents and was spoiled rotten all weekend. Martin got me a gorgeous Tagine so I can cook yummy Moroccan dishes and my little sister (whose birthday it was as well) got me a Bothy Threads cross stitch kit (which I had dropped a not so small hint to her about). Zoe and Martin together got me the most amazing ceramic owl lamp for next to my bed - I've just been to buy a light bulb today so can't wait to get it set up. I also got a big pile of books, some of which I will be doing reviews of because they are crafty books! Yay!
My presents off Martin - can't wait to try some tagine recipes!
My godmother Penny knows me so well!
These are the presents I got off Zoe - isn't she excellent at using Amazon?!
Nom Nom Lamb!
Chips in a basket!
This is Zoe playing on the grass at Keswick - we went there on my birthday with Martin's Mum and Dad and fed the ducks.
I've also had quite a bit of a lovely post over the last few days, not all of it birthday related! I got a letter from my International Geek Girl Penpal Club penpal Kara, as well as a postcard from the Postal Society Intro Postcard swap. The very lovely Helen from #PostCircle sent me these awesome pencils for my birthday - how amazing are these?!?!
I got another Liebster award, this time from Julie. I really struggle to think of 11 new facts each time, so I will just let you read my previous award posts which are here.
