It was my birthday on Monday (15th April)
Our good friends David and Jane had afternoon tea and cake with us on Sunday afternoo, and they bought me these lovely bright pink carnations, and chocolate, and a gift which I will reveal another day!
On Monday Alex and I met my dad who is 81 and half off the bus from Okehampton and we played tourist and walked round one of my favourite places Exeter. Bloomin' seagulls even follow me there too!
My friend Denise gave me lots of remnants of vintage Laura Ashley fabric. I think I will have to find some special to make with them. The pieces are aproximately 20 inches long and about 6 inches wide and there is about a hundred of them.
And today Interflora delivered these Lilies from our son Robert and his partner Anneka. He sent them today because of us spending twenty-four hours with my dad. He bought us a meal out on Monday evening in Okehampton.
As these Lilies are in a tight bud I thought I might take photo every day at the same time and blog them on the their progress of opening.
