Now I am one of those lucky people whose birthdays last for weeks!!!!

My first "appointment" for my birthday was breakfast with my friend Michelle.  We met at Mugg & Bean in Town Square on Thursday 7th and had a lovely catch up over a shared breakfast of eggs benedict and flap jacks.

She spoiled me with this beautiful summer scarf and necklace >>>

Next was breakfast with my friend Linda Le Warne on the very next day ... We met at Mon Petit Throbb on Monte Casino Boulevard ... It is a stunning little restaurant where they focus on really fresh food.  The chef bakes artisan break in the pizza oven ... I need to get back there to buy some of that bread.

Their food looks like artwork and it took us a bit long to order our breakfast because we were talking so much!  I had french toast and Linda had a Country Breakfast ...

After the bill was paid we kept seeing one of the waitresses delivering these gorgeous looking juices so we ordered one with carrot and orange ... DELICIOUS!!!!
Linda spoiled me with all these goodies and amongst them was Contempo gift card ... I am going to buy myself a white blouse with it.

Satuday 9th I met Ali at her house and we popped over the road to Mugg & Bean for a quick breakfast before our shopping trip.  She blessed me with a birthday card which contained a voucher for a meal and time out with her.  I will be redeeming my voucher on the 5th March ... All confirmed and in the diary.

We popped out to PNA at Horizon ... unfortunately the scrapbook paper was in a bit of a mess as all their focus was on the back to school stuff however she managed to get enough paper for two challenge layouts.  We then popped past Scrapbook 'n Things and I stocked up on click 'n stick ... I am sure when Lara sees me coming she cringes as she knows that her stock of click 'n stick is going to be depleted.

On my way home I popped past Tekkie Town in Blackheath Plaza to get my birthday gift from my boys ... Takkies.  I threw in a couple pairs of socks at the same time as mine are worse for wear.

13th January 2016 ... 53 years since the day I was born.

So TODAY is my birthday and my boss gave me the day off.  Connor and Steph brought me to Krispy Kreme at Rosebank and we enjoyed the most awesome donuts and I had a mega cup of coffee ...

We trawled the mall after Krispy Kreme and at lunch time I took Connor and Steph to Ocean Basket for a quick lunch.  After lunch we went into the shops in The Zone to look for a wallet for Connor ... we found one that was 40% off!!! Yipppppeeeeee!!!!!  We hit the traffic just after three and I was delighted to be home by 3:30.

Connor suggested that we try Doppio Zero at Mall of the South for dinner so he and Steph went off to fetch Talora (Connor's best friend) and we met them there.  We had a lovely relaxed evening with these gorgeous young people.  Talora gave us some insights into her recent trip to Europe with her parents.

Talora spoiled me with this lovely set from The Body Shop ... Of course it is my favourite colour!!!!

Saturday 16th ... Noleen called and asked if I would like to come round for coffee after lunch and I said I would enjoy that. Wendy had popped round so when I told her I was going to Noleen she said she would come with as she had not seen Noleen in a while.

Gordon and Noleen gave me a Sorbet Voucher ... which I need to use desperately ... THANKS!!!!!
And there was an envelope from Nicholas, Salma and the boys with a voucher from the craft shop You Inspire Me in Meyersdal.

I have truly been spoiled rotten and here are the gorgeous gifts I have been blessed with ...

Stephanie's Mom Carol made me this gorgeous necklace ... Which was beautifully wrapped.
My friend AnnaMarie made me this awesome blouse ... I can't wait to wear it but I had to try it on and send her a thank you picture.  She did not realise that my birthday is in January and was so stressed that the blouse would not be ready on my birthday that she gave me a birthday card with a little blouse cut out of the material inside the back of the card.
 My precious niece Taryn sent me this gorgeous shrug type wrap ... I LOVE it!!!!  It is ideal for cooler summer days and will be great with a long sleeved black top during winter.
My friend Susan posted me this gorgeous make-up bag with scented cupboard sachets.

Monday 18th ... Wendy popped round this evening and gave me a gift bag filled with goodies ... It had two of the bras I love and need, some Oh So Heavenly smellies, two fizz bombs and a packet of frutus hard candy (it's the first time I have ever seen them!) ... Yummy!!!!


On Tuesday 19th my friend Sam and I were meeting at Cradlestone to do an interview so we had a quick breakfast at Mugg & Bean ... She spoiled me with this gorgeous necklace, bracelet and an aromatherapy heat pad ... Connor heated it up last night while I was working at my scrapbook table ... it was heavenly!!!

 Thank you for spoiling me and making me feel so special.
