I had a good day, and got quite a few pressies. Only one of the teddies in the above photo is a birthday present though. The one with the pink hoody... It was from Kelly. The other two were ones I got just before my last hospital trip. The one with the scarf was from Kelly, the little lamb was from my Mam. But since we had the camera out I thought I'd include them in the photo anyway. :)
My Mam made me a birthday cake. See...
And, yes, it is a very tasty cake. ;)
Mam and Dad came for the afternoon. We were meant to have egg and cress sandwiches for lunch... Dad got some cress for me special. But I wasn't really hungry, and neither was anyone else. So we just had a piece of cake and then waited for dinner... Which - if you're interested - was toad in the hole, roasties and sprouts.
So... What did I get?
Well, I'd already had my main pressie from Mam and Dad early because of going in to hospital (my Ipod Shuffle) and Kelly let me have the main pressie from him early too (a new stereo for the bedroom). I also had the teddy mentioned above, £30, a little box of my favourite chocolates (Guylians chocolate seashells), a bottle of my favourite perfume (Charlie blue) and the fairy globe in the picture below.
I also had a couple of candied apples. Dad and I had a good laugh over them. Why? Because - according to the label - they "may contain traces of nuts" and "contain traces of spinach." The nuts I can see... Most chocolate carries that warning, so I get that. But spinach? WTF??? Who the hell puts spinach in candied apples? And, more importantly... WHY??? *Shaking head* Well, at least that explains why the last one I had tasted a little weird. LOL!
I also had the obvious things... You know? Cards. LOL!
Oh yeah, and Eleri and Faye got me a pair of PJs. They also got a little treat for Kero so he didn't feel left out with me having pressies.
I've got a pressie coming from my brother that I don't know what it is too. He has ordered it, but it's not got to me yet. Shouldn't be too much longer though. :)
All in all... A nice selection of pressies, and a really good day. :)
And... Speaking of pressies... I had a nice surprise the other day. A new audiobook from MarmiteToasty. I'm going to listen to it once I'm done listening to Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series (I'm on book 5 of 6 with that now).
Thank you, Toasty! :)
Thanks to everyone who did "happy birthday" posts for me on their blogs, posted "happy birthday" comments on here, sent me birthday e-mails, etc, etc. :)
