It's my Birthday!

Put the bunting up and grab a cupcake or two, today I'm 32.
And I've gone from this chubby cheeked bubba to this smiley mummy of 3 beautiful girls. I couldn't be prouder. And wouldn't be the person I m today if it wasn't for my loving partner Ben. Who lets me grow with every year and is behind me in everything I do. Thank you, you beautiful man. I love you x
(If you're wondering why Daisy's face looks so funny in this photo, it's full of white chocolate buttons. hehe! aren't Grannies great?)

Enjoy a couple of cupcakes with me and snowball or two lol well it is nearly Christmas, so it rude not too hehe! Thank you everyone who's wished me a happy birthday today.
Sadly poor Daisy and Ben have both been ill over the weekend and I've been looking after them today, so no cake or cards for me. I have been giving them lots of TLC, so they should be better soon.
I was a very lucky girl and they got me this gorgeous Nigella enamel utensils set. I just love them they match the spoon I picked up at the CL show in London. Thank you Short family, you know me so well lol
I'll be rustling up some yummy things using these very soon. x
My lovely Mum, Dad and Granny sent me money, so I'll treat myself to something. Jade got me Pirates of the Caribbean Worlds end, lots of yummy Johnny Depp. And Ben's Mum and Sister sent me Cath Kidston vouchers, yeay! I can't wait to use them. So a big thank you to all my family for thinking of me, I'll be sending little notes out soon. xxx

A little part of me was hoping for one of these cute fluffy things, as I do miss my Ronnie so very much. Not that I want to replace him, I could never do that. Just a small ball of fluff to play with. And a new little friend for Tom and Megan to love. Maybe next year after we've been to Ireland. We can get another kitten. Thank you again to all of you that sent me birthday wishes. And the lovely phone call I got from Kat in a flap. Great to hear your voice honey, thinking of you. x

Back soon with next of the fair and some photos.

Merry Christmas x

Hugs Catherine x

Happy Birthday Catherine!

you look so cute in your baby pic- much like all your girls!

Sorry I've been crap and haven't got your Birthday Card out to you. Such a shame for everyone to be ill. hope they're all feeling a bit better now.

Alexei has been poorly too. I've been up at night with him and I'm knackered. I've forgotten how awful a few broken nights are!

Yes, a new kitten go on, get one! (But I will be round ALL the time . . . )

Lots of love Claire xx

P.S again, i've had problems posting messages. Blogger just doesn't like me!
