Today's the day!

It's my birthday today, and I'm just glad I'm feeling a bit more with it than I did last week! It's been a quiet day so far with cards from my parents, husband and a couple of friends. DS have me a wonderful home made card with a pop-up smiley face in the middle, but I then had to give him some money so that he could buy me a present. By the time I get home this evening, the postman will have been and gone and I expect that DS will be demanding to open any cards that arrive during the day. Then we'll just have our normal quiet night in.

I see from my notebook that on this day last year I had 2 new starts - Starflake and MTM. I don't think that one finish from those two is bad going at all! But I don't think there'll be any new starts for today.

Now I just have to plan what stash to spend my birthday money on.

Your Birth Month is February

Peaceful and harmonious, you seek the gentle side of life.
Your warmth and consideration touches many.

Your soul reflects: Purity, modesty, and faithfulness

Your gemstone: Amethyst

Your flower: Iris

Your colors: Purple, yellow, and light blue


Also see http://www.paulsadowski.com/BirthDay.asp for a whole load of trivia on your birth date! For example, did you know -

There are 366 days till my next birthday on which my cake (if I had one) would have 42 candles.

Those 42 candles produce 42 BTUs,or 10,584 calories of heat (that's only 10.5840 food Calories!) .

You can boil 4.80 ounces of water with that many candles.


I bet you're glad you know that now. And to think I'll have to wait a whole year to put it to the test!
