What a Birthday! or How to make Mum cry!

It was my birthday on Monday (yes April 1st)

I knew that the family were planning a gift for me.
Certain whispers told me that something was afoot. But as no questions were asked about what I might want I expected a handmade treat.
Well , the table was set and 2 parcels appeared at my place.

Gorgeous Amy asked “Mum can I ask a tiny favour, can you open the larger present first?”
An easy request to grant.

To my delight I found inside 3 hand printed calico bags. They had produced them last time I was in Adelaide

(I have already tweaked one to give it a gusset effect)


The smaller box was a small rectangle like maybe a bracelet box. Little did I suspect that they employed a favourite trick of mine to disguise, a gift by wrapping in a deceivingly sized parcel.

What was inside you ask.
Let me tell you. The most awesome and overwhelming gift- a ticket to the Josh Groban Concert.

I still can’t believe that they have done that for me. To make things even better 4 have bought tickets for themselves so I will be able to enjoy it in fine company.
My response was the expected flood of tears.

I still get teary when I think about it.


  1. Hooray! Happy Birthday Mum! I'm glad you liked them so much <3

  2. Lovely post, Mum. I'm so glad you loved everything. :)

  3. How was the concert??

    And the beautiful girls you have grown
