Happy Birthday to me......Tra la la la.....

23rd December 2008
Today was my birthday and I got woken up by a little girl who was clearly more excited than me. A cup of Christmas tea was dutifully brought to my bedside then I was jumped upon, 'Come on Mummy it is present time'.
    Bleary eyed I sat up, (we had had friends round the night before and got to bed quite late, when did my party animal skills leave me?) and sipped my tea. I have to say that I was very spoiled with my presents and Sophie was very good because when she was two she kept ripping all of the paper off my presents and it was the fastest birthday I had ever experienced then or since!

    Sophie's eye was caught by a rather large box which she wanted me to open and I really had no idea what it was and hubby sat there with a grin on his face as it was from him. I was delighted to find it was a record player that you can plug into you TV, UBS for an MP3 player etc. We are playing some of our records from the 1980's as I type this post. It will get used a lot particularly when Mr Indigo Blue goes radio control car clubbing on Friday's and it will be turned up if Sophie goes with him too.
    This arrived yesterday,

Hubby answered the door and asked him by name, two apple trees so we will have to put the fence up in the garden very quickly now as it will need to grow along the fence rather than upwards as a usual tree. He then rang his parents to thank them because it is his birthday next week and one has a birthday tag and one has a Christmas tag and they said glad they have arrived but they are not for you! So I have two apple trees which will go nicely with my blackberry bush. So plenty of jam next year and other apple goodies.

We decided to go to The Eden Project for a meal but it closes at 6pm today so it was lunch instead.

Got there and half of Cornwall seemed to be there too. So we went and had a look round the Biomes first then had a lovely baked potato with hot salsa bean sauce, Sophie had a pile of cheese but she finished it bless her.

My camera kept steaming up which is why it looks a little foggy.

There was a Christmas mini market and Sophie had a go at candle dipping,

When we got home Sophie asked if we could light it, then she sang Happy Birthday to me out of the blue (very sweet) and then said, 'can we blow it out now)!

There was a large Christmas tree at Eden too,

Guess what it is made out of.......

Plastic carrier bags!

We had hoped to stay until the lights came on but Sophie was getting a bit tired and it was drizzling to we decided to go home.
When we got back we all sat down and watched this...

This was the first proper film that Sophie saw at the cinema and the worst bit was the trailers. Even thought there were lots of young kids watching it they still had trailers for films older then their certificated age. Sophie loved it and because she has heard a lot of ABBA in this house she sang her way through most of the film and really enjoyed watching it again tonight.

We had tea and then had some of these,

Only three candles otherwise the plate would melt!

The day went very quickly as it always does and Sophie was very good t going to bed. She was fascinated by the record player and called the records big CD's.

I have nearly finished my blue knitted bag and it has turned out well. It will form part of my new 2009 section in Etsy.

A Christmas thought for you....

Sophie: "What if Father Christmas runs out of wrapping paper? After all he has a lot of presents to wrap."

Mummy: "Oh, he has a wrapping paper machine that is run by one of Elves, he will have plenty."

Sophie (looking at me with suspicion) "Oh, are you sure?"

Mummy: "Yep"

Take care.xx
