What a wonderful day!

Thank you all for leaving such wonderful birthday wishes today – what a lovely inbox to come home to! {{hugs}}

Have to admit, the day went really well – my lollies/choccies went down a treat, and I got out of work for an entire hour walking around the two floors to hand them out and make sure everyone got one … see, there was a method behind my madness! LOL. As soon as I walked in the door I got ushered over to the ‘Hotline’ area where we sit when I’m on Supervisor Hotline relieving duty, and got given a big bunch of beautiful pink tulips, and a birthday card, and an envelope containing the collection money – so I now have another $95 to spend (wow), and I’ve told them I’m going to put it towards framing costs too, which means I can get both my fave stitched pieces framed – it will also be a long-term reminder of my 40th, and all the people in my life at that time. I’ve had a day full of ‘physical’ hugs from my colleagues and well wishes, and loads of ‘cyber’ hugs from you all, and I feel as though I am absolutely glowing from the good vibes 🙂

But the gifts didn’t end there at work, I also got yet another gorgeous gift from the other side of the world in my PO Box today … Barbara sent me some of the most wonderful, glorious threads in my absolute fave colour – blue!! Barbara, thank you too for your very generous gift … I am blown away by your generosity as well – thank you so, so much {{big hugs}}. And I get to see some of that that infamous silk thread up close and personal – it’s no wonder you love it so much … it’s “yummo”!

I’ve decided that the United Nations should start a campaign and get everyone in the world blogging – because I reckon world peace would be created within a couple of months 😀 Everyone I’ve met through blogging so far has been the most generous and loving in nature and spirit – OK, admittedly we’re all stitchers too, so maybe we have an edge there … LOL.

So thank you, thank you one and all once again … I’m now off to crack open a bottle of bubbly as my final end to a wonderful day … so I guess that means no baking happening tonight LOL.
