Another day

Thank you to everyone for sending me birthday wishes. I had a lovely day and had lunch with my husband, which is nice because we don't always have time with just the two of us. That might sound strange but we do a lot of things as a family,which is great, but don't always take the time for just ourselves.
Then on the Friday night we went out for dinner with the whole family - all 6 of us- my two big boys actually managed to find the time to come as well which was great. Usually if I suggest something they always have something else on. (typical males).
 
This is the gift I received from the Initial Heat Swap run by Cheryll. It was from Simone and was a beautiful heart shaped mug rug. I realise now that you can't quite see the shape because of the mug. My initial was on a little heart appliqued onto the mug rug. So of course I had to have a cup of tea to go with it. It is now is use beside the lounge chair. Thank you so much Simone.
 

And here's what I sent Anthea - a needle book and a pincushion. I had bought this pattern last year and so when the heart swap was mentioned I knew that I wanted to use it. I can see me using this one again. This was a lovely swap to take part in. Thank you again Cheryll.

So lovely to have some special time with Hubby. That can be hard to manage while young ones are still at home. Love your heart gifts, both sent and received.
