Chaos reigns today.

What a difference a day makes!   Yesterday was my birthday and I was thoroughly spoilt with gifts and visits from all my children, except one who is not well enough to come out.  Below are some of my pressies - bath gel, embossing folder (which will work in the pasta machine), key paper punch, all nine Beethoven Symphonies and a perfumed room spray.  I have placed them on some lovely handmade wrapping paper which will no doubt find it's way into some of my work.

Below is the Green Man painted glass panel which was another gift.   When life returns to normal I will hang him the kitchen window so that the sun can shine through.

I woke up nice and early this morning which was good as there were still a few things to be done to clear the living room for the decorator who arrived promptly at 9am. Now I am ready for a lie down and it's only 10am!   The sun is shining so I might hang the washing outside to celebrate.

Happy Birthday Heather, what lovely presents and the green man's gorgeous. I hope the painters don't take too long. We had some long awaited rain and the temperature has dropped from the mid 30's to the mid teens, it feels like it's freezing.

Happy birthday! Sounds like it was a nice one. Glad you're having good weather. We're having rain (and it was actually cold enough that I thought it would be snow - ugh).

Heather said...

Thankyou everyone for your kind wishes. I had a lovely day. Keeping an eye on the weather as the clouds are building up and I want my washing to dry!

Lucky you having the sun shining - here wet snow has been falling since lasy night and is still falling now. Even Tess didn't wish to put her nose out of the back door.
If the decorating is driving you mad, take a deep breath, listen to the Karajan and imagine the room when it is finished.
Love that green man - want one.

What lovely presents, especially the green man. I did have to smile at you having to have a lie down at 10.0, I know that feeling. Hope the decorator won't take too long.

well I expect you have had the rain Heather, same as here. Hope you got the washing in in time. Lovely birthday pressies, especially your green man. Don't wear yourself out with the decorators coming in.

Happy Birthday! I love window decorations like that and the way they color the light as it comes in.

What wonderful presents - that green man will look wonderful in the window. I hope you can play the Beethoven symphonies while the decorators are there - that will cheer you up. Cheers.

Lovely presents and he Green Man is beautiful. Glad the frogspawn has arrived, a real prelude to spring.

Linda said...

Glad to see you had some lovely presents Heather. I agree with Maggi; the Green Man is fab - he will look amazing with the light shining through.
Happy to hear that you have frogspawn....made me feel a bit more positive about Spring!
