It is my birthday today. I have been wonderfully spoilt, with lovely gifts from husband and children, Mum and all my dear inlaws. The teapot and cup in the picture are part of a 'grown up tea set', from Darling Husband. I had an impromptu tea party this afternoon to christen them. I baked cupcakes with a lime glace icing this morning, to serve on the tiered cake plate. Miriam Pauline, the tea infuser fits my new teapot perfectly!
Tonight we'll be enjoying Chinese food. I am really looking forward to it! I know, I know, it's a deviation from the menu plan, but Hubby insisted, you know ;)

Hi sis! Mum just emailed me the address for your blog, which I have loved reading! Of course, being unorganised, your card was only posted yesterday... so hopefully it will extend your birthday pleasantly, when it arrives! Tea set is gorgeous - Brett sure does know you well!

Megan says that a decent sneeze will set off labour, this baby is soooo low. Well, I am going to get the pepper grinder out soon, to test that theory!!

Take care, Love Sasha
