Happy Birthday to me!!!
Yep - yesterday I reached the grand old age of 37 which the kids aren't going to let me forget!! Day started as it usually does with me getting them ready for school and then I had an appointment with the midwife. I was all psyched up for it as we were supposed to be getting the results from my triple blood test (which gives an estimate of the risk of Down's, spina bifida and cerebral palsy etc) but the midwife hasn't had them back yet, after 2 weeks, so I was psyched up for nothing! Apart from that everything was fine although baby does seem to be a bit of a "wriggle-bum" and didn't want to stay still to have it's heartbeat listened to at all! If the baby ends up looking anything like this I feel sorry for it!! Yep and embarrassing photo of me eating chocolate pudding! After the appointment it was off to Tesco where OH bought a birthday cake for me then back home for lunch. He went off for a walk on Dartmoor after that and I had a play around with my gorgeous new Brilliance and Versamagic Dew Drop inks that I chose a few weeks ago and had to wait for my birthdya to have. I also had some of the K&Co Addison papers and OH bought me the new Meat Loaf CD. My parents came around in the afternoon with my card and pressie - 4 sets of Marvy Le PLume II pens which I've been craving recently- and stayed for a cup of tea. After that it was a normal evening although I did treat myself to chicken enchiladas for tea - YUM!!! Had a play around on Ebay in the evening as OH was watching "I'm a Celebrity" - managed to get 2 fairly recent copies of the US Papercrafts mag which I love and also a Scrap and Stamp Arts mag as that looked quite good. This morning I'm aiming to go to the bank shortly to pay in a couple of cheques and then I may saunter off to either the local craft shop or the craft section in a large local garden centre to see if there's anything I fancy to spend some birthday money on!!!
