Well all the celebration and kerfuffle that comes with having a 50th Birthday is finally over. I had a wonderful week. Thanks to everyone who left Birthday wishes for me. What made this Birthday so amazing was not so much that I received so many gifts but that everyone put so much thought into them. Since my Birthday I have received more parcels in the mail, gorgeous patchwork fabric, more violet China and an apron with a Doily pocket with Violets embroidered on it and a yellow Rose bush and flower seeds for my garden all the way from South Australia. Another parcel contained a treasured piece that a friend decided to share with me, it holds many special memories of a friend we lost a couple of years ago. These four friends know me so well. The thing is none of us have ever met!!!! Technology has enabled us to meet and sustain a friendship for a few years now but one day we will find a way to be in a room together.
The kitten is still here and I am letting him become part of the Family since no one has laid claim to him. The biggest hurdle is of course the Man of the house but he is such a softie where animals are concerned I don't think it will be too much of a problem. I take it as a positive sign when I catch them napping together on the couch! The poor little thing still doesn't have a name, that will be next week. I have to go pick up Beau on the weekend, so if the kitten is still here after a few days with Ross I know I can name it.
A few friends and family turned up to wave goodbye and some walked the first 10km with them.
Meanwhile I am enjoying the peace and quiet and a tidy house while Beau is away.
