Birthday Time Again



I can't believe it's a whole year since I celebrated my 40th birthday. I had such a fabulous day & a great start to a new year. Then I had health problems & the rest of the year went by in a blur. So now, today I am 41!. Celebrations will be more sedate. I am going into work late, working half a day & taking a long lunch with my best mate & partner in crime, Louise. As I'm on the diet still, I won't be eating very much of the pictured cake. It is tradition in our office that the birthday person takes the cake & money is put in a charity box per slice or cake. I can't afford cream cakes its costs in excess of £15 these days & most of us are all healthy peeps who eat very healthy & drink lots of water. I have some gorgeous cards & some money to buy myself something for a change. Usually my birthday cash ends up going towards the water bills that arrive the week before. Not this year, I want some art materials to keep me going while I clear the decks!! I've been having a bit of a blog/challenge/blog hopping break to make team/forum/design stuff, but needed some ME time too. It is starting to get busy at work & Im shattered in an evening adjusting to my more hectic work pattern.

Happy Birthday! I'm just a month older than you!! I love your cake tradition- very fun! I hope you ate just a little pice of cake! I didn't even get one- it snowed and rained on my b-day and it was trecherous outside, so dinner was cancelled. I never did see the cake my mom supposedly bought...
