Happy Birthday to Me : )

I can't get my photos to load in order so this could be a bit confusing.

Above is the herdy mousemat from DS. Below are some 'old lady' slippers I treated myself to as I wanted a warm pair big enough to wear with my handknitted socks.

It was my birthday yesterday and I got some super-duper presents and a hand made card from DS.

I always hankered after an Aga. Living in a tiny terraced house in a city, its not looking likely that it will happen so...DH bought me a Teapot shaped like an Aga. The kettle is the lid. Isnt it clever : )

Close up so you can see the words on the front of the card DS made me.

DS also bought me a herdy mug and mouse pad, and DD2 bought me The Knitters Year which has lots of lovely patterns in.

Meet Philomena

A new friend has arrived at my house. She is called Philomena MacMoore and is very chatty and slightly scatter-brained. I cant think who she takes after : )

More Photos of Winter magic

Arent I Blessed?

This is the view I had from my back garden last week.

I am so lucky to have an old Victorian cemetery at the back of my house and no-one overlooking us. We also a balcony to stand out and look out from which is big enough to have a table and chairs on and I can see over the back garden and into the landscaping of the cemetery, just like a country park from yesteryear.

I'm afraid our internet is down at the moment. According to aol, it is due to 'atmospheric conditions' and they dont know when it will be back on. I am not impressed.

I am typing this on a friends computer and will be popping in when I can until this is resolved : (
