It was going to be all dot point-y and had interesting information about pronounciation, grammar and the joy of laundry...
But then some of the things that happened during my day were down (morning migraine; dusk onset of sudden reaction to a little bit of cream; sad news not directly to do with me but that has and will affect us all a little bit) and so all of the up (present opening, walking with Paris in a sling to the beach, housework) sort of got a bit blurry and it wasn't as pithy as I needed - and so I scrapped that post.
Thank you for the lots of lovely ideas given yesterday. The presents I got today were not found in that list but were well worth celebrating my 37th (anniversary of my 4th birthday).
I got foodie stuff (I am the sort of girl who swoons in kitchen places); girlie stuff (both of the smelly and silky variety); electrical stuff (that has apparently been researched into the ability to withstand the hex that is in our house) and beautiful cards that make me smile. You get no photos because the batteries died...
We haven't yet eaten the cake that was baked for me, because the daughter who started my day at 2am decided her need for my attention was greater than mine - but I have been good and not investigated and will extend my birthday to cake for breakfast!
Anyway, looks like my football team have decided to add to the "down" section of my day so I will crawl into bed and switch off the light.
Oh, and the answers to 'Salina's riddles were in the comments of that post - but here they are again:
..On the third roosters dont lay eggs.number 1 was One knight a butcher a backer and candle stick maker went into a shop - Mum helped me make the "K" invisible because the K is silent - but it was there...
number 2 is that one leaves at 7 am the other at 7 pm.
