It's my Birthday today, I'm 47 backwards, that sounds better to my ears, lol

They all asked what I would like and I chose money to go into my Paypal account.  I know it sounds boring but it means that I can use it without caring and buy bits and pieces such as 'more wool' Teddy eyes, craft books etc.

Tom Grandson didn't want to give money but sent me a lovely Parker cartridge pen, blue with astrological markings.  He knows I like Astrology so this was thoughtful of him.
I've wanted an proper ink pen for ages so I'm really happy with it.

Of course he has to write a little note that made me laugh.

A very large thimble from Matt.  It's actually a pot for , well, anything you want really.
I'd like to put a house plant in it but it wouldn't last five minutes with my lot.
I will find good use for it though, it's so unusual.

My Daughter gave me a cake and some truffles as well as the money, they won't last long, lol

And here's Willow singing me 'Happy Birthday'.


  1. Happy Birthday Briony! It sounds like you are all set to have a lovely time. Enjoy!

  12. What wonderful and well thought out birthday gifts. Happy belated birthday! I am 71. Gorgeous photo of Willow!

  13. A Very Happy Birthday to you Briony!

    Was Willow washing her paws as she sang "Happy Birthday"? I trust that she sang it twice!

  14. Wishing you a very happy birthday:)

  15. Happy birthday, Briony! Sounds like you had a good one. :)

  16. Happy Birthday dear Briony! I will be, according to the way you tell your age, 17 on Friday. Oh my, I would NOT want to be that age again. What nice gifts you received with love and humor! Blessings on you ~ FlowerLady

  17. Happy Birthday - yes 47 backwards sounds better. Only trouble is that my next birthday is all sevens so it's the same either way.

  18. Happy Birthday. Love the way you describe or age. I always remember the old actress Dora Bryan in a TV interview she said she was "sixty several" which I rather liked!

    Funny I found my fountain pen I was given when I was eighteen which I will clean up and go back to using!
