33 Yesterday!

Hello!  It was my birthday yesterday - 33 years old... how the time flies!

The Lumberjack and I had booked the day off work, but unfortunately we were both ill with a nasty cold virus we'd had all weekend.  We'd planned to do something nice, along the lines of the Winchester Christmas Market and an afternoon tea.  Instead we stayed in sipping hot honey and lemon drinks - venturing out to the chemist for more cough medicine!

We're still ill today - it really is a horrible virus.  But, on a more positive note I was spoiled with lovely presents from him, his family and my family... so here is a selection to show you...

Lovely bunting wrapping paper and butterfly tag from the Lumberjack - I didn't get a picture of the parcels, as I was too impatient to open them!

These are some of my presents.  Kirstie Allsopp Craft, socks, lots of ribbon, a big traditional ceramic mixing bowl, a jewellery/craft box (so pretty, with bunting on!)... and look at the PiP Studio tea plate and matching cup and saucer - picked by the Lumberjack!

I'd not even ever seen the Vintage Knits book before - the clever fella found it himself - it was a nice surprise present!  Here's one of the projects I'm going to try to make:

Lovely wrapping paper from my brother and sister-in-law.

Here's one of the lovely presents from them - gorgeous pretty stitch markers!  I love them!

This fleece and fabric scarf is another present from them - I've got it on now to keep me warm!

And these lovely fabrics are one of the presents from my parents.  Gorgeous!

I won't bore you with any more, but I was very lucky!  I just wish we had been well, but we'll have to have a nice day out in January to make up for it.


  1. Happy birthday + 1 day! That is so poop that you're both sick. I hope you feel better, pronto.

    But, to look on the bright side, you'll be recovered in time for Christmas, and won't be sick next week! Just over compensate then ;)


  2. Poor you being ill on your birthday! But having been to Winchester Christmas Fair I can report that it wasn't as good as previous years - and having spoken to a couple of people who went, they agree too! Feel better soon and enjoy all your lovely gifts!

  3. Happy Birthday! Looks like you have a very crafty one :)

  4. Happy Belated birthday, your's was the day before mine!
    Your gifts are beautiful looks like you were spoiled, I do like the look of that sweater you have on your to do list! x

  5. Wishing you and your loved ones a "Merry Christmas!"
