The Big 40th Aftermarth

Todays blog is dedicated to my gorgeous party guests and the lovely gifts I received.
Like most birthdays they start off with a bit of a buildup and waiting for the post to drop through the letterbox. So here goes with the first of the big THANK YOU announcements.
Thanks to all those of you that sent me a card in the post, there is nothing quite like getting a bit of mail that does not come in a brown envelope.

Thank you for my selection of gorgeously tasting chocolates, I am still working my way through them and on the odd occasion I am washing them down with a some of that lovely bubbly and wine.

My Pandora collection that I started earlier this year way back in May has now grown to the point that I have managed to fill my first bracelet, so a big thank you to those that have helped me fill it.

Skin care and a good beauty regime at our age is hard enough but a few of you bought me enough things that smell, purify, cleanse and brighten up my complexion.

And then there was gifts that just let you know your finally over the hill and on a steady decline.

And then came a gift or two that were extremely personal that did not fit into any bracket and clearly came from the heart.

I am truly grateful for the generosity to all my friends that bought me birthday gifts and attended my 40th celebration. I will pamper myself for along as I can in the vain that some of my birthday gifts might help halt or reverse the ageing effect. I also noticed that some of the surprises were not just in the gift but also in the unwrapping.

I am now going to chill and relax with my TeaPigs.
