I had a small gathering of friends and colleagues at work.
The invite was bring your own bottle and / or cake (you can never have too much cake!). My friend Kieron baked me the most amazing raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. They were D E V I N E
And look at this bad boy which my friend Kevin brought. Yep it was a cake fueled evening!
OH got my a set of Emma Bridgewater eggs cups (which match my mug) and they come in their own chicken coup box - amazing!
And a mug of my favourite Underground poster for the zoo
And look I got a similar image at the Zoo
OH figured I'd eaten too much cake the day before so I had a pork pie with candles instead - it was yummy mind! We bought it when we were in York and it was might fine!
And my friend's Claire and Mark got me this amazing sewing basket from Libertys which also matches the pin cushion I treated myself to when we were there the other week. I had actually been secretly (or so I thought) lusting after this.....
I've had the most amazing week, and so many gorgeous gifts from friends and family. I'm also off shopping soon as I have vouchers burning a hole in my pocket AND I'm off for a rather special tea party this weekend with some girlfriends. Watch this space, it's hopefully going to be amazing! I still can't quite believe I'm 40. But it makes me realise how lucky I am to have such incredible friends, family, colleagues and best of all my wonderfully grumpy OH... wonder what we'll do for my 50th!
