Thanks =)

I had a fantastic birthday this year, thank you very much for asking. It was my kind of celebration – very quiet, low key and doing the things I enjoy most. I got to indulge and sleep in. I spent time shopping and getting my nails done. I spent the afternoon reading and then preparing for a small dinner at home. I also got a lot of birthday greetings from people who mattered – family, friends, colleagues and even a couple of acquaintances that remembered my special day. I am touched by the emails, phone calls, birthday cards, and in-person visits to greet me. And yes, many of the greetings were sent online via Facebook – and that was ok too. I also got loads of lovely presents. Flowers from my husband, flowers from Joy, Jim, Jules and Marc, three items from my wish list (thanks Les, mom and Jojo). A present from Atsi and Mark. And even more presents from my Ordinario family too. It was nice. Nevermind that the weather was acting crazy all week. Nevermind that over dinner the power went out and we experienced a blackout that lasted over 4 hours. I didn’t mind too much. All in all it was a wonderful way to spend my birthday. Thanks to everyone who made it so special =)

P.S. What do you guys think of my new blog template? I love it cause it reminds me of Cath Kidston prints - which I absolutely adore =)

Glad you had a good birthday , Joanne. Hope it was a candlelight dinner after the power went out. Your new template makes it so much brighter - hope the gloomy skies would brighten up too.
