I had a lovely day full of surprises - birthdays always make you smile for many reasons - like friends who live far away and remember (and are organised enough) to send you a card which arrives on your birthday. My friend Jo, who I've known for 13 years and now lives in Canada, never fails to send me a birthday card every year no matter where in the world she is. The envelope is always covered in pretty stamps and stickers and she always writes a nice little note with it too.
As for pressies, I got lots of new herbs and plants for my windowsill! I am cultivating my first strawberries, basil and rocket thanks to Georgina, and then I got a nice bundle of Mint, Coriander and Parsley too! I'm going to have to get some more windows!
