I had one present to unwrap--and thankfully I saved that from when it arrived a week before hand as it makes me happier if I can unwrap something ON my birthday. I knew what it was and even had seen a pic of it because it's what I suggested my sister could knit for me. Ooo they are sooo nice. Lovely and soft and interesting. I didn't really need to wear them yesterday but I did anyway.
In my afternoon off I went for a stroll to find a cafe but darn the Bank Holiday, most places were closed. I was surprised that cafe's would be mostly closed with people off wandering about. I ended up going to the pub overlooking the sea and had myself a delicious southern comfort and cola while I worked on one of my knitting projects. I finished off the leaf pattern of my pixie beanie. ^^ Now I'm just onto the decreasing.
When I got home again I went and hung out in the backyard with the fam and the friends they had over. Then we had dessert and they brought out the cake I had bought and sung me Happy Birthday. It was a yummy lemon drizzle cake. Just a little one I found for less than £2. Later I checked online and replied to more birthday wishes before being picked up for Forge.
Forge is a craft group I've been going to organised by a local church where people come along and do all sorts of things. Whatever project they're working on. Last night I took along on of the wedding projects I'm working on for the upcoming wedding I'm attending in Germany. I also took along fudge to share since it was my birthday. It was enjoyed by all even though it was a bit of a flop--literally. I think the cooking chocolate here is softer than ours back home so will have to add more chocolate next time. I'd also mentioned to someone earlier that it was my birthday that day so I got a little carrot cake there and the song again.
Back home before I gave the boys their dream feed, I replied to the birthday wishes I had received. My birthday was nothing grand (the grand part was my weekend in Ireland--see previous posts) but it was pleasant with pockets of mini treats.
