Today I turned 27. It was a good day for 27...
It was a good day because the kiddies and I slept in until 8:15am instead of their usual 7:00am. That is enough to make the whole day absolutely wonderfully fantastic!
There were 2 ripe, juicy plums for breakfast.
The post man came and in the letterbox he left my complimentary issue of Homespun magazine with my Prairie Satchel project in print! And to top it off...my bag made it on the front cover!
Then there was a decent slice of raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake for morning tea whilst I flicked through the mag. Definitely an issue worth purchasing if you are craft-inclined. Homespun seem to be turning a new leaf and have adopted a young, fresh and funky approach...I like it.
The bathroom and toilet were cleaned and fresh sheets were put on the bed - it is always a good day when your bed has fresh sheets.
Lots of thoughtful phone calls, emails, facebook messages and text messages from friends and family to wish me a happy day.
It was a good day because even though I did the grocery shopping with the two kidlets in tow (one of my least enjoyable jobs to do when I have company) we did manage to get my favourite car spot in the car park - close to the entrance and not on the hill. Then Oscar and Lil were splendidly behaved throughout the whole shopping experience with Lil only cracking it in the second last aisle instead of the second! And to make a not so good job a little more manageable I treated myself to an easter bunny easter egg because it is a good thing when you can start to eat easter chocolates 2 months before easter.
Then special birthday flowers arrived at my doorstep from my very thoughtful husband.
The good day got better when Jaron came home from work 1 hour early and we decided to go out for dinner at the park and let the kids run wild while we ate out of cardboard boxes and then came home to a clean house with no dinner dishes to worry about!
