Happy Birthday To Me...

 This Wednesday I celebrated my 28th Birthday... 
Yes... another year and another year older...

I had a lovely day... and received some gorgeous birthday gifts...
...including these three lovely books...

Cute & Easy Crochet -  Nicki Trench

I have had my eye on this little crochet book for a while... so was really pleased when my lovely husband surprised me with it on my birthday...
35 different crochet patterns... cant wait to get started!.. I think ill have a go at the crochet bunting first...

Dottie Angel - Tif Fussell

My great friends at work gave me the 'Dottie Angel, The Suitcase Series' book...
As you can probably imagine, I was a bit over excited when I opened my gift :) 

I love the ramblings of Tif Fussell on her Dottie Angel blog... So this was a perfect gift...

The Great British Bake Off - Linda Collister

...and last but not least...
My brilliant parents bought me 'The Great British Bake Off' cookery book... 

...and what a fantastic book it is... packed full of different recipies and each page beautifully illustrated...
I have already made the delicious Victoria sponge cake!...

These books are so brilliant that they definitely deserve their own individual blog posts... 
So keep an eye on the blog!..

Thank you to my husband, parents, sister, grandparents and friends for the lovely cards and gifts they gave me!.. I had a great day!..
