The 21st & 22nd; It has been a good birthday.

The 21st of January.

It’s been a good birthday. Started with stopping steroids so that’s a bonus! For breakfast, I had Nutella-filled French toast which was delicious, obviously. Then presents! I got a waffle maker, a bag of Jelly Babies, Edd Kimber’s Patisserie Made Simple, and two (pending) Pandora charms from family. My new slippers were an early present from Grandma, and I got some wool and a book of adorable toys to make so clearly I’ve started one already. 

Mommy went to Sutton to buy my Pandora but they had neither in the shop, the Edd Kimber book and stuff to make Cubanos with so we had those for lunch. Amazing. Oh and while Mommy was out, the postman chose the time I was in the toilet to ring the doorbell. Thankfully I was able to get there!

This afternoon I began this crochet and Mommy and I have been watching TV. I’ve had flowers from Becky and Heidi, other crochet kit from the rest of the Easts, and we’ve had an indian and birthday cake for tea with Most. I spoke to Aunty Audrey at length as she forgot to send my card, bless her. All my lovely friends and strangers who aren’t really strangers sending me birthday messages, I love you all dearly. I’m overjoyed to just be here. I’m a little bit emotional. 

The 22nd of January. 

I hate how polar my emotions seem to be. Yesterday I was so happy, then I had a terrible sleep so I’m exhausted, I feel generally crappy, and my tummy feels off as well. 

This morning I went to Bad Apple to get my hair cut before goes off to have her baby, so I gave her the jellyfish I made for the baby when she arrives. We have cut my bob back in and I’m only allowed trims until she gets back. I’m going to see James on Tuesday so we can do something mad with colour, as I am bored. 

This afternoon, I really didn’t have an appetite, so I ate some soup, and I’ve just been working on my first animalaaa from the new book, but I’ve run out of wool so I’ll have to finish it tomorrow. 

I’m rubbish and uncommunicative.

    Hang in there girl, keep smiling and of course creating!! Looking forward to seeing your new creatures. I’ve had bad week with my lupus so been getting a lot of crochet done. I’ve been trying freeform crochet, it’s great fun and very relaxing. I hope to blog about it tomorrow! X


    Happy birthday! That red velvet cake looks magnificent šŸ™‚


    I’m glad you had a good birthday ā¤ļø Waffle makers are great, you’ve reminded me to look for ours and use it again šŸ˜Š


    Ha ha I’m an eejit šŸ˜ When I got home from work today I went up to our old house and hunted in a very dusty cupboard and found our waffle maker. I’ve just given it a good clean and thrown the box in the fire. I’ve asked my husband to get some eggs from one of the local farmers as I’ve just used the ones we had (they were duck eggs actually) to make chocolate brownies! Might make waffles tomorrow. šŸ˜Š
