Happy American Independence Day and My Birthday


Happy American Independence day yes its my Birthday today, I am a very independent Lady well that's what my husband found out when he meet me, sorry to say over the last eight year of marriage I have lost a little but I still consider myself an independent Lady.

July is a lovely month to have a birthday, Foxglove is the flower of the month, Ruby is the stone of the month. When I worked in the City of London I used to walk from the Bank to the office all the American company's used to have the flags flying, it might have been the stars and strips but I used to think how nice on my birthday, well that was years ago I don't know if they still do but it always looked so nice in the sunshine.

We went out for a meal last night, we were going to the George at Nettlebridge, but we walked out the menu had changed and it was a bit odd, the steak for example was the same price it has been but it said it came with peas and a tomato plus anything else i.e. mushrooms 65p onion rings 65p a fried egg 60p but no mention about chips or jacket potato, we looked at the menu and left, drove to another pub in Castle Cary called the Brook House and had a wonderful meal, and for less than the other pub had steak and everything. I might add I actually had surf and turf it was month watering. Followed by a Baileys cheesecake naughty for me as I am a diabetic. But you only have one birthday a year, Don't you???

I want to say thank you for all the messages I have had from the do crafts members and the cards pictured here,

Thank you Ginny the card is lovely as you can see with an embossed panel which has not shown up very well and the vase of flowers
The lovely heart is from Janette, its sweet and beautiful, along with some crafting goodies, which I will enjoy

This is a present to myself, I brought from QVC some #Dawn Bibby stamps which they had on offer on Tuesdays show and they arrived yesterday.

I hope you enjoy today and thank you for visiting my blog today, look forward to seeing you pass by this way again soon,

Have a nice day as they say over the pond,
Hugs Margaret
