Thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes I have received by email, on yahoo groups and on facebook. They have all been very much appreciated and helped to make my birthday very special.
This year was a departure for me... for the past few years my birthday present has usually been a new Sasha doll but this year... I opted for books... very cool books... there are books on sock knitting, books on dyeing wool, and books on using google blogger... I just adore books...
After breakfast and opening all of my presents and birthday cards, Neil and I went out for lunch to a restaurant in the new Victoria Centre in Belfast. It was really delicious... then we wandered around the city centre for a couple of hours finishing off with a cup of tea in the coffeeshop in Waterstone's book shop.
We had sandwiches for tea with a glass of wine and watched The Goblet of Fire and the Half-Blood Prince on DVD... I really love the Harry Potter books and movies... a perfect birthday!
