BIRTHDAY HIGHLIGHTS

As some of you know it was my 33rd birthday last week and I had such a wonderful day, mostly involving food. A pretty paper garland made form all my birthday card envelopes adorned a breakfast table of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on croissants, followed by opening all the beautiful gifts from my family and friends including a super cute handmade cushion and lavender bag, pretty bracelet, my favourite chocolates and a blossom paradise of a card from my Daddy.
A lunch of lamb with braised lentils and sweet red cabbage was eaten out at our favourite bar and then home to prepare some snacks for tea time visitors.
Left over raspberry and meringue roulade made for a naughty breakfast the day after.

  5. Happy Birthday! and what a wonderful blog.
    You Brits have such a way with flowers and arrangements of lovely things.
    You must check out a blog called The Vintage Kitten, also by a British lady who is very funny and also has that ‘way’ of display.

    Oh many happy belated returns. Love your card from your pops. My Mum often finds ones like that to send to me (my Dad is not so good at tracking things like that down), I think they’re gorgeous! Looks like you had a great day! :)
