Happy Birthday to Me!

So DH and I went shopping for a little netbook and I had a cute pink one lined up in my sights until I saw it in real life... yukky pink, sort of salmon pink.... so I went for the black shiny version instead.... hmmm, big mistake!! Since it got home I haven't actually had a chance to look at it... someone seems to have adopted it under the guise of 'getting it set up' and 'testing it out'!! LOL

and I got this cute little guy from my Mum - who obviously knows that her daughter is still a big kid!!

and Gypsy has spent the day sleeping on the scraproom sofa keeping me company!!


  1. Happy birthday to you!

    Your DH sounds very much like mine in the gadget department!

  2. Happy Birthday to you!
    Lovly greetings and hugs from Germany

  3. Amazing how fellas just have to ensure stuff like this is working correctly for us...I don't remember my DH being that concerned about our new washing machine, freezer, hoover...LOL

    Hope you have had a good one Annette and hope you can reclaim you plaything soon.

    Toni :o)

  13. Happy Birthday for yesterday - hope you have got to play with your present now! LOL

  14. First of all- I absolutely LOVE your work!!!!!
    Your blog reminds me of when we lived in the middle east. Of course, that was over 30 years ago and we were in Iran, so ours was a somewhat different experience then yours I'm sure. I see a lot of similarities, though. The pic of the bus ride shopping especially brings back memories! And what treasures could be found there, as you well know! I would love to go back there right now and shop!(not to Iran, of course, but to the middle east) I used to think I wouldn't ever want to go back. Kind of a "been there done that attitude" because I thought all middle eastern countried were pretty much the same. I didn't know because I never went to any other country in the middle east except Iran. My husband recently went to Dubai and Abu Dhabi and told me how great they were. Then reading your blog really makes me want to go back and see some of the other middle eastern countries. I had heard some good thing about Kuwait from friends we had in Iran who had live there before. Maybe the next time my husband goes I can tag along!

  15. Happy belated birthday VV ! I hope you have finally got your hands on your birthday present ! x


Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
