Birthday Week

Only a few of my friends new it was my 39th birthday on Monday, not that I'm keeping it a secret but I didn't want to make a big song and dance about it. My best friend from high school, Valerie, gave me this beautiful Moda Jelly Roll "Portobello", just gorgeous. I've decided to use it to make "Gardner's Journal", another beautiful pattern by Hatched & Patched. Thank-you Valerie, I'm going to enjoy this project. My DH & DS didn't forget me totally. DS made me this lovely card although DH thought it was funny and told DS it was my 40th! It included a few vouchers, even one for Peace & Quiet!They even gave me some pretty roses and cooked dinner.The next pressie was from Nelle, who lives in central Queensland. We used to work together in Tassie and we're now lifelong friends. Thank-you Nelle, the lotions and potions will make me smell beautiful.To end the week I joined my friend Sarah and others at the Gold Class Cinemas to see this:-

What a great show, found myself singing and laughing, thoroughly recommend it. I had to buy the CD, even though I've got every single ABBA song.

And today ends with a little shopping, courtesy of DH, some lovely fabrics to compliment those I received from Valerie. I did have plans to buy a Pandora bracelet too but I'm going to check the internet for best prices, so I'm off shopping online this time.

Happy belated birthday! Sometimes your birthday has to be a little bit quieter but I hope you enjoyed it anyway {I think it's not the worst to get 40 2 times...so you can confuse everybody on future birthday e. g. by counting backwards *grin*}. Have fun with your pressies - I'm looking forward to eventually seeing the pictures of the result ;o)
Best wishes, Julia

Happy Birthday, Jo. Some lovely gifts there. Love the Portobello jelly roll and Peace on Earth charm squares. Gorgeous. Mamma Mia is getting lots of good reviews in blogland. Hope I get to go soon.

Happy Belated Birthday! How funny of your DH! My Mom does things like that! Not as jokes though. One year I sent a Happy 80th bouquet to an Aunt when she was 79 - Mom just got it wrong LOL
