Birthday Greetings!

We just celebrated my friend Roddy's 40th birthday down at Balcary Bay.
The photo shows my DH, moi, the birthday boy and our friend Deborah, from left to right.
We had some cake and wine to celebrate the actual day, then went out to dinner with some more of R's friends and relations to honour the occasion a couple of days later.
The cake was quite cool, shaped like a bottle of vintage bubbly, and we did take some photos, just not on my camera.
Many Happy Returns, auld yin!
As most of you love crafts, D has allowed me to show you the gift she laboriously made for R, and believe it or not, she is not sworn off cross stitch for life, she has started a kit for herself, which is a very rare occurence!

I've done counted cross stitch for overthirty years and that is a very impressive present. Doing it in secret makes it mindboggling!
