Thanks so much to everyone who left me birthday wishes on my last post - it was so lovely to receive them all and they helped make my day a happy one.
It's now only a couple of weeks until my big deadline. Almost everything is done, but I still have quite a lot of loose ends to tie up so I think it will be a busy fortnight trying to keep my head above water. I do hope you will all bear with me as I am hoping to return to my blog with renewed enthusiasm once I have some free time again!
In the meantime, there are still things to smile about: the sun is shining and shining, I have lots of chocolate left from my birthday, and I saw a bumble bee with a fuzzy orange bottom on my way home today (simple mind, simple pleasures...)
See you soon...
