A Little Birthday Fabulousness....

....because on Saturday it is!!

I suppose really my Friday posts are always a collection of my personal favourites....but this one is definitely a bit of everything that would make up my perfect day, all the things that I love and that make up my life.

It's been another challenging week, my Dad is still very very ill so this week has been mostly made up of long hot treks across London to visit him in hospital, trying to extract information from medical staff, endless phone calls to compare notes and details with my brothers and keeping our spirits up.

So....on Saturday I plan to distract myself by having a special day of celebration - cos if there's one thing my children have learned from me, it's that you can never celebrate a birthday too much :)
There will be cake and presents (this much I know for sure because I had to give my children my own money to enable them to shop today!) , there will be a lovely lunch somewhere and possibly a trip along the River Thames. And Sunday will be Easter eggs, daffodils and an egg hunt.

My Dad always tells how it snowed in Wales on the day I was born.....this week-end it may be 80 degrees in London!!

Thank you all the lovely comments this week - have a wonderful Easter week-end!

    My comments always seem to sound the same but I'll say it again... these pics are stunning - the kiss on the beach, the bedroom, the flowers - *sigh* the beauty of it all...

  5. Morning Simone - LOVING these pictures, perfect with my cuppa tea this morning. Flowers and bed and presents - sounds like the perfect birthday. Take time to enjoy it sweet. I love that quote - 'stack of books and tea' how very true!! Sums up a good day. So I am sitting here contemplating the long weekend...family Easter egg hunt on Sunday, the eggs are going to melt if the weather stays this warm - but hey, I am not complaining! Happy Birthday to you...love Lou x

  18. Joyeux anniversaire Simone. I see you and I share a firm, no, entrenched belief that one can never, indeed, celebrate a birthday too much. Dash the bottle of champagne - tis a CRATE we will share !

  19. Dear Simone - Happy Happy Birthday to you! - a bit delayed I know, but we are just back in Sydney after a wonderful week in beautiful Tasmania.. where there was no means of communicating electronically. In fact my mobile went out of range just as we left Hobart (the state capital).
    We had a marvelous week and I will share pictures on the other side of my washing mountain..!

    Hope you had a really special day and that your dad is feeling a little better. My thoughts traveled to you several times during the past week. Hang on in there.

    xx C
