birthday bounty



Back from a bit of a blog break last week... it was one of those hectic head-spinning weeks, so I was glad to have this past weekend to relax and celebrate - it was my birthday! Roger surprised me with a wonderful weekend... a festive family breakfast outing, fun walks amongst the autumn leaves, some window shopping, lots of cool gifts (a new jacket, concert tickets to Avi Buffalo and a new Barbapapa book... yay!), and a home cooked gourmet dinner paired with lots of wine. I couldn't ask for a better birthday. He even took pictures for me of his cookery adventures, so that I could share them with you today! How sweet!

Happy Birthday Val. Looks like it was a joyous one and what a darling hubby you have to make you such a fine feast AND act as photographer in your honor. The meal looks really yummy, he did a truly fine job ... does he cater?
