When it comes to occasions such as my birthday, or Easter, or Christmas - in short: any event that implies presents, good food and being surrounded by loved ones -, I just can't seem to get enough of them. Take my birthday, for instance. It is almost a week ago that I turned 45, and I have already posted about my party. But I have not taken the streamers down yet, and almost all the presents are still on the desk where I put them on display, and all the flowers are still beautiful.
That way, and by taking pictures and writing about the event on here, I mentally go over such special events again, and sharing those good times with my readers somehow increases the happiness I can draw from them.
Therefore, please bear with me - or, if you're sick and tired of hearing about flowers, presents and the weather, simply skip today's entry and wait for the next.
For everyone else, here is an assortment of pictures taken this week.
After a more or less sunny weekend, this sight greeted me when I got up on Monday morning:
But indoors, I had plenty to be happy about! Look at the beautiful flowers people brought for my birthday:
Yellow tulips and blue forget-me-nots - the perfect bouquet for me, since yellow is my favourite colour and forget-me-nots are my favourite flowers! The orange and white tulips match the colour scheme of my living room so well, it'll be a shame when I'll have to let them go some time this weekend.
All my presents in one picture:
See the yellow socks with the crocheted flowers on top in the front? You can probably guess who made those :-) Speaking of which, the March giveaway is still running.
The red with white polka-dots is a pair of trousers - can't wait to wear them, but it will have to be MUCH warmer for that! Whereas I have already been wearing the blue cardi in two different combinations, one to the office and the other one to an event called "IT-Brunch", which is held regularly in my town and where I usually go when I do not have other appointments that day:
It is raining right now, which means the snow is being washed away. Good! Tuesday still looked like this:
No matter. I am looking forward to this weekend, which is FOUR days long instead of two, because of Easter. Happy Easter to all of you!
