birthday celebrations

photos from my birthday picnic at erddig

thank you for all the birthday wishes! you made my day extra special :) i had a fantastic birthday - quite possibly the best ever. thankfully the summer weather we've been having hung around for my birthday. we packed up a picnic and headed down to the river for a family picnic on my acutal birthday. it was so peaceful - all we could hear was the birds singing and the water flowing by. it was pure bliss. we walked around the woods too, paddled our toes {though the water was pretty chilly!} and soaked up the sun. we came home and ordered an indian takeaway, then the mr and i watched a movie once the kiddos were sleeping.

gift wise i was totally spoilt. i got a new record player and some more vinyl for my collection, 3 pairs of new shoes, some owl tops, a remote for my camera, some crafty goodies, and a couple of new books. i also got a few new owls for my collection!!

friday, a friend and i took all the kiddos to chester, werhe there is a mad hatters tea shop. we treated ourselves to a delicious cream tea, then had a wander around the shops for an hour {i picked up some lush treats for my bath}
finally, last night we had friends roudn for a bbq/fire. it's one of my favourite ways to spend an evening - fire, friends, food and music is the combination for a perfect evening. after a busy couple days of birthday celebrations i'm taking it easy this weekend - the girls had a birthday party this afternoon, now they're watching anastasia while i get a few bits of work odne!
