I was treated to some lovely cards:
A chocolate pizza:
And some Sass And Belle ribbons on gorgeous wooden spools:
Mr G's Mum and Dad along with my Mum, Sis and niece were due for lunch and I was very lucky as for the third year Mr G cooked - in fact he did everything, including set a pretty table:
I wore a dress/tunic that I made using a pattern from the book Sew Serendipity.I'm not over keen on the fabric, but I used it as a test run really, as I lost interest in making clothes after having so many that I'd work on, get to the point where I try them on and then look dreadful in them - like a bag of sh1t tied up as my Mum would so eloquently put it!!My Mum brought me some lovely flowers as has been the tradition for years (up until Christmas Mum was a florist):
Stargazer lilies, my favourite.
In other news, after signing up I am already addicted to Instagram!! It's so fab, not only can I nosey at everyone's pics but it encourages you to take photos of ordinary moments during the day which will be lovely to look back on.If you want to follow me I'm shabbychicsarah on there.I am trying out the Blogsy app for iPad so I can blog without having to having to fire up the laptop, so if this post looks a hot mess then that'll be why - so far I am in two minds, it's taken ages to post this and the photos are tiny. I'm having trouble getting it to do links consistently too....Any way, nothing much else to report....Hugs,S x
