Goooooooood mooooooorning everyone! How are you all doing? I'm doing great. I had THE bestest birthday yesterday and I want to thank everyone for their wishes. My phone was ringing, pinging and zinging all day lol.
Sadly :-( Postman Steve never made it because of the weather so I didn't get any of the cards I'm being asked if I got or not. I'm hoping since we had a bit of a thaw yesterday and overnight that I will have an avalanche of cards to open today :-D
My day started with my annual phone call from our friend Peter back home in Vancouver. Apart from December 9th being my birthday it was also 26 years at 8:30 am that Nicole and I landed on Scottish soil! I'm sure the story is somewhere on my blog so if you have nothing better to do (yeah right!) you can have a seach. Basically Peter worked for BA (ground staff) all those years ago and he was instrumental in getting Nic, myself and 42 pieces of luggage to Scotland in one piece! He's only missed one year and he got into such trouble for it that he's been terrified not to ever since lol.
From them on the phone didn't stop ringing. Nicole called to say she had a surprise for me and wanted to know what time I'd be in town. Now for some idiotic reason I thought maybe Donny was in town and was having lunch with us (and no you are not too young Suzy Q to know who Donny is! I'm sure you were more a David Cassidy groupie lol) ... I did say idiotic! I managed to get the train into town and slushed and slid my way to her work. Upon arriving she told me she'd arranged for me to have a manicure! Can I tell you right now that daughters are flabulous and everyone should have at least one lol. I went off for my manicure and she met up with me later where she bought me my first Gingerbread latte of the season yum! Nic didn't have enough time for lunch so we had a quick look around the shops then went our separate ways. I did a bit of Christmas shopping and I must say I got a little bit more in the festive mood.
I grabbed my favourite sandwhich out of Pret a manger....turkey, stuffing, cranberry and crispy onions...on the way to the train...I haven't had one of those in years and it was flab! My first train was cancelled but me and a hundred others caught the next one. We were like sardines but at least we got home. Nic and Ben picked up a takeaway on their way home from work and Pierce got a pavlova for a birthday cake. I had such a sugar rush when I went to bed I couldn't sleep lol.
So that was my birthday...over for another year. But I guess you don't really want to read all that...you want to know who won my Birthday Present giveaway. You guys gave me a giggle with your comments and the cheques are in the post for those who were super kind guessing my age. Wasn't too happy with 49 but then I set myself up didn't I lol. I was born December 9, 1963 so that makes me 47. I was a child bride...married at 19!
So the winner chosen by the random generator ie glass bowl is......
Happy Birthday...like some of the others I will say going by the number of years you have been married you are 47....but I will say...you are not old you are well preserved! LOL! I became a new follower a few weeks ago!
Congratulations Patty!!!! Send me an email with your address and I'll get your prize off to you :-D
I'm hoping to have something to show you later so make sure you check back.
Thanks again...have a great day!
Catch ya later x
