Happy BIrthday To Me!!!

Yesterday I turned 52.  I started off my morning with breakfast at Olivia's in Northcliff with my "boyfriend" Ian ~ I tried their paw paw breakfast and although not as pretty as Tasha's it was still yummy!  We had a lovely time catching up and it was a wonderful way to ease into the day.  I bought some cake at Olivia's for my colleagues as I was not in the mood to bake on Monday night.

Ian and his wife gave me this lovely gift ...

These are the beautiful flowers that were waiting for me on Monday when I arrived home from work ... Thanks Suzie!
 My friend Samantha gave me this Susan Lewis book ... I am going to add it to the 2015 reading challenge Connor and I are doing as "A book by an author you've never read before" ... Thanks Sam.

I sent a message to my sisters and asked if they would like to join us for dinner at Torino's ... We made it early as the Loubser boys had only arrived home from America on Monday night and were suffering from jet lag and school starts today.  I also asked my friend Linda if she wanted to join us.

Connor was overjoyed to see his cousins ~ he had missed them like crazy while they were gone.
Of course my camera was there to capture moments ...

 Some naughty comment or the other resulted in these smiles ...

And I got thoroughly spoiled!!!!  This sweet gift came right across the world from Katy, Texas from my precious niece Taryn ...
Linda Wood gave me a Sorbet voucher which I will use this weekend and some double sided tape ... which I need desperately!!!
Noleen gave me a beautiful card (made by me!!! LOL!!!!) and some money to use at either the scrapbook shop or Sorbet (they are both in the shopping centre so what I don't use at Sorbet I will spend at Scrap Crazee!!!)
 Wendy gave me six of these gorgeous bottles for my kitchen and a beautiful mirrored plate (I loved the one she gave Norma so begged for one for me!!!)
Today I got an Olive hand pampering set (scrub and hand & nail cream) and some sweeties from my colleague Mary.

I had so many phone calls, messages on my cell and facebook messages that I felt totally loved ~ Thanks everyone.

I am off to do some sorting out in my scrapbook room until dinner.  Hope your day has been super awesome and wishing you a restful evening.
