Many Happies to Me!

Good morning all. It appears that yesterday morning I turned another year older...such a blessing.
I have been totally spoilt by my tribe which includes many of you. This post is photo heavy so don't say I didn't warn you but gratitude and saying thank you is important to me.
As you know without Mr R's early wonderful gift (my new tablet) we may not be even having this conversation....thanks dear! I spent the day with my dear friend Ann who travelled down from the Sunshine coast to be with me. Ann was well enough to travel on her planned overseas holiday...awesome news! So we had to catch up about that too.
Miss Erin popped into say hello too.
She was not keen on being interrupted from her important conversation for a photo. My friend always spoils me rotten and this time the birthday spoiling came all the way from know how I hate Jim Shore's!
Insert *Squeal* here! Gorgeous! I had been eyeing this fellow off on his website and drooling! Now he lives with me....I just love all the little creatures, especially the snowy owl.
Ann also made sure I had a tree decoration from her trip to you know who has led me into the path of obsession with all things Christmas don't you.
and a beautiful 2016 calendar full to the brim of gorgeous feathered friends...
and I was so happy that Ann has been making her lovely cards again (even though she is far from satisfied) I love it.
We did lunch...oh and had cake! Maybe a bit of retail therapy, definitely lots of talking lol!
It was just perfect! Makes my heart so happy to have my friend doing so well.
The postie has been very busy dropping off parcels over the past week and it makes me wonder how I got this very blessed with my friends. One such parcel came from my dear friend Fiona from Bubzrugz. Fiona knows me soooo well!
Inside a beautiful birdie.....oh love it!
It is very happy in it's new home.
Thank you so very much Fiona xxx
I was very spoilt by my friends at Stitching group as well....thanks so much girls x
Another parcel was from my dear friend and LGS roomie Cheryll talk about spoilt!
Beautiful sewing caddy so beautifully stitched and the yummiest of fabrics....thank you Cheryll. You are very naughty xxx
I also belong to a Birthday Fat Quarter club and received some beautiful fabrics but I am off to do a separate post because they deserve to have their own.
DD is taking me out for afternoon tea on Saturday which I am looking forward to very it is stretching out this birthday.
Thank you so much for all the lovely gifts and messages....a beautiful thought goes such a long way and I appreciate each and every one.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
