Saturday

the goings on

oh gosh, so much has happened over the months... i turned twenty three! even closer to being all grown up- sigh. and a teeny reminder to how quick the year has gone. and it's spring...pretty pale blossoms cover the twigs in the gardens. little lambs spring into our world jumping around in the fields. daffodils fill our window sills. home baked muffins. sunny evenings. warmer sunshines. woodland adventures and photographs. silly fun with friends. ice lollies with brothers.
i received such beautiful gifts for my birthday. flowers and flowers. peach coloured tops with frills and lace and pearls. jewellery and the most wonderful sets of earrings i have ever owned. the most perfect sandals with bows and pearls and twilight-new moon and more jewellery. sweets galore. strawberry oreos and milk in a bottle-pure delights. the most wonderful books. beautiful everything. more and more.
mother made me an adorable pink teapot birthday cake with gold painted flowers. and my friend at work-joanna made me a wonderful pink castle cake. amazingly perfect birthday.i had a little birthday party with the dress up theme being -something beginning with 'c'. c for charlotte. i dressed as a pierrot clown and prince s was a caterpiller. there was charlie chaplin and cleopatra and a circus ringleader and cinderella and captain jack sparrow and cyndi lauper and charlie's angels and cow girls and boys and more. very creative. and lots of fun.
one april day, suz and i visited the farm around the corner. they had a fun day with candyfloss and children's rides and bouncy castles and sugary doughnuts. the teeny lambs that were merely days old were frolicking away looking sweet and being noisy.
we shared sugary doughnuts and an earl grey tea cupcake with sickly sweet lilac icings. mm. we then drove to the cottage and had teas and coffees and a nattery natter. it was lovely.
*for st valentine's day, mother received a very special gift- little bunny boris. his name is not boris, but i call him boris because he prefers it. he told me. boris is so lively, he jumps and hops around in his wooden house and makes lots of mess and eats lots and drinks more. but he is ever so adorable.
*
i had the very best weekend. i spent the whole of it with ola and amanda, and our friends came to visit- lauretta and clairabelle. we went dancing and had good foods and drank peach water with strawberries and we went shopping on the sunday and i bought many pretty things. many. i didn't want it to end. but then clairabelle had to go home to brighton and so lauretta came to see the cottage and my room and tilly~rose and it was lovely. and then it was so very sad as they had to go. but it was the best ever weekend in ages. so i am happy happy happy.
*
tomorrow after work is going to the best ever moments in a while also. the excitement bubbles are going to be floating around inside ever so fast and they will all pop the very moment i see him. i will stretch out my cardigan arms and wrap them right around him. i will never let go. oh, how i have missed him so.
goodnight my lovlies. and thank you for my awards and comments. and even though i do not blog as much- thank you ever so for still coming back. forever love and wishes.
