Happy birthday

to me! Yes it's my birthday and no, i'm not telling you how old I am. Although 40 is getting very, very close. Not sure what we're doing today. Weather is miserable again. Had nice weather over the weekend and I was hoping it would last for todaybut it hasn't. Going out for an Indian meal tonight. I'm getting a digital camera for my birthday which is on order. I'm desperate for it to arrive and hoping it'll arrive tomorrow am but somehow I doubt it. Also got money to buy Photoshop which I've wanted for ages. Also a few little presents including a candle form Vanessa and necklace from Emily.

Girls are spending this week with their grandparents and had a great day yesterady apparently. Simon is off this week too so we're looking forward to a chid-free week. It's nice and important I think to spend some time together as a couple once in a while.

Yesterday the weather wasn't too bad. Dry and sunnyish. We went up on the moors for a walk with the dog in the afternoon and there were lots of ponies around so I decided ot take some pics with my phone. Not brilliant quality.

A beautiful stallion:

Views over local country side. The village I lived in when I first lived in England is in the distance.
The quarry in the distance is called 'Golddiggings' and is filled with water. the girls love going swimming there.

I've got a cuople of finished projects too but nothing I can show. One of them is absolutely gorgeous though. And I wish I could show you but I can't.... yet. Cast on for another 2 secret projects last night. I promise you something I can share soon.
