It's my birthday today! Hooray! Despite starting the day off in hospital (just a scheduled check-up, nothing too drastic) I've had a lovely day. My presents were small in quantity and high in quality, just the way I like them.
My mum and dad gave me this amazing vintage musical card (as well as a gorgeous vintage fabric print) which I love, love, love.
Here's a little video of it in action. I love the sound it makes, totally adorable.
Mail was pretty thin on the ground today (as it has been in general of late) but, in a coincidence of perfect timing, the embroidery I'd treated myself to on etsy arrived. I was a little nervous opening it for fear I wouldn't love it as much as I had expected, but it was even nicer in real life and I love it even more than I thought I would. Yay!
The rest of the day was spent hanging out with Graham and Dulcie (a rare treat in itself) going round the charity shops and out for lunch. For tonight, we're hoping Dulcie might go to bed at a reasonable hour as we have cava and lots of cheese in the fridge. Mmmmm! All in all, a pretty happy birthday :)
