I do love Birthdays that stretch on for weeks. Mainly due to the fact that I haven't been bothered to arrange an official Birthday party this year, I am meeting up with friends in dribs and drabs. I find this is better sometimes as it enables you to actually have a coherent conversation, rather than constantly play hostess and flit from one person to the next. It also means unexpected presents!
Catching up with L last week, I was presented with this absolutely gorgeous shawl:
What I particularly love about this shawl is it's perfect shade of turquoise. Not too green, not too blue - just right (photos never do colours justice). It's also just the thing to get me through the Spring chill.
