I had

the most wonderful birthday yesterday EVER!

I was totally spoilt with so many beautiful cards and presents that it was quite overwhelming, thank you everyone! especially to Sandra for the gorgeous canvass and tag she made me, I shall treasure them and Carol for the lovely paper flowers AND Reece peanut butter sweeties, how sneaky to remember they're my favourite, normally I have to wait for someone to bring me or send me some from America but Carol spotted them in Asda. I intend to frame my card from Carol it is stunning and the tag, all wrapped so beautifully wish I taken a photo of it now! Dawn got me a fab overnight bag and matching wash bag which I've longed for as when we go away all her stuff is beautiful and matches and I look like 2nd hand Rose as usual. Eric got me a new flat screen TV for the bedroom, I'd given up watching the old one as it was so awful and Mum got be the perfect scarf and Vik had made me a calender of wedding photo's which I love. And loads more stuff LOL
I tried taking a photo but it's blurred because it's difficult to hold a camera still and if you think this one is bad you should see the ones I tried taking of Ben and Harvey bums!

In the afternoon Vikki, Mathew and Be came over, quickly followed by Rachael and Harvey, Marc my son is still in America having gone to Washington and Philadelphia with a friend to watch the American football game between the army and navy.
A rare picture of MR & MRS T!

I figured it would be rude not to eat two pieces of my birthday cake so abandoned the diet in favour of good manners LOL

 My beautiful canvass from cousin Sandra!

At crop on Saturday the girls all sung happy birthday to me and Mum came in with a cake and candles I suspect I went a bit red!

With the exception of Orin who is limping and scary the pants off us ( but there is no lump so paws crossed he's just sprained it) all hounds are well and still being good ISH!

Off to hand clinic tomorrow.

A few more hound pages for Eric's Christmas prezzie which I'm thinking with 8 dogs still to do may not be finished but I will wrap it anyway.

Jim Buba , then HRH Mac man and Lucky Ducks.

Sure Eric will love the hound album and he'll have something to look forward to in the New Year if you've got got it finished.

Hope clinic goes well.

It looks like you had a wonderful birthday! I can imagine that all the beautiful paper art sent you over the moon. So well deserved, my friend. The picture of you and Eric is lovely. You're so little! I can't imagine how you handle all those hounds.

I appreciate your encouragement as I work through my first album. I know you are right about "just doing it." The first time I glued something down it was PAINFUL, but by the time I got to the second page, much less so.

Happy Birthday, Sue! So glad you had such a special day.
