This has been one of the worst 3 winter months I can remember for catching colds normally we are lucky and they pass us by but this year we’ve had one after the other even my husband Tony has had them and that’s unheard of he’s as tough as old boots and to top it all off this last week I’ve been suffering with Pleurisy , well I suppose we should be thankful it’s the winter months where we can keep warm and cosy inside ..

You know from Sandra’s Blog that it was my birthday this week ,thank you all kind friends for your good wishes they were very much appreciated , I thought you might like to see some of the lovely Bouquets of flowers sent to me …

This gorgeous container of plants arrived by a courier from M & S

Anthurium

Another fabulous bouquet

I loved this unusual gift from our daughter it’s a wall plaque in the shape of a heart with the names of our children and grandchildren

I’ve been very lucky with gifts my husband bought me a pearl necklace our son the matching pearl earrings our daughter also bought me Pandora beads for my bracelet .. plus several other bits and pieces from friends .
I’m looking forward to getting my appetite back so that I can tuck into a good belated birthday meal also catching up on the surprise weekend away which had to be cancelled ..

I hope this finds you all in good health and ready to tackle and enjoy your gardens this year , and those of you who suffered horrendous garden damage this wet winter I hope it’s not as bad as it first seemed ..

HAPPY GARDENING EVERYONE

Everyone has been sniffing. Dry warm air should cure.
Hope your Pleurisy is on the way out too.
I liked the wall plaque, very clever !

28 Mar, 2014

 

Hope you wil soon be feeling better, Amy. What a lovely selection of gifts, very pretty and I like that heart-shaped plaque, too, very original. I do hope your appetite soon returns and that the surprise weekend will come sooner rather than later. Wishing you and OH a full recovery very soon. Take care.

oh, wow, lucky you! that plague must have taken some work, to get all the names in the right shape. and love your trough. happy birthday and many more of 'em!

28 Mar, 2014

 

The sight of all the lovely flowers and the other wonderful gifts must have given you a much needed boost Amy, I like the plaque, being a big softie myself I love presents of that nature.
Hope you and OH are soon completely back to good health and then you can have your weekend away....

Thanks for sharing your birthday treats, the plaque is a work of art....it's lovely,and so is your planter and the bouquets are beautiful. I hope you are feeling much better soon so that you can enjoy all the other treats in store for you!:-))

Lovely gifts Amy. I'm so sorry that you missed out on your surprise weekend away because of illness. Soon it will be a little warmer I hope. It is so cold here today, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see snowfall. March is such a cold month. But soon it will be April! :)

28 Mar, 2014

 

That plaque is terrific, Amy, and lovely to see your birthday gifts. I DO hope you'll feel better soon, and be able to enjoy a belated celebratory meal :)

Amy , my dear , I missed Sandra's blog !
Belated Happy Birthday . Yet another Aries !
My OH is one (yesterday) and me in April . ( Not altogether a good idea , two in the same household !)
Lovely bouquets .
I hope that you are feeling better ; cod liver oil in a capsule ( can't taste it) and zinc tablets (one of each daily) , should help with the colds .
The weekend will be even better for the wait (delayed gratification and all that) !

Thank you everyone you are all very kind , I really do feel I'm turning the corner this morning ,it's amazing how kind thoughts can cheer you on your way , Julia I use to regularly take cod liver oil caps but stopped taking them when I read there was nothing to prove they worked ,well maybe this years bouts prove they did work and it's time to start taking them again ... x

29 Mar, 2014

 

I take them as well - even if nothing can be proved, the plaecbo effect can be powerful!

as for "proof" - scientists scoffed at "old wives tales" of using foxgloves in herbal remedies ... until digitalis was *scientifically* discovered!

Lovely birthday gifts, Amy. I love the colours of the bouquet and the plaque is such a nice idea too. Hope you're well on the way to being better soon and can enjoy the weekend away.

29 Mar, 2014

 

Lovely birthday presents to cheer you up Amy ... I hope you are feeling a little better now ... the heart shaped plaque is a truly unique gift and one to treasure always :o)

Pleased to hear your feeling a bit better Amy, such great birthday presents, lots to wear on your break away! I love the plaque, what a smashing idea......all your family in one heart...perfect....:)) xx

Dear Amy,

wishing you a very good health for next months and years to come. Cold is a tricky lady. Be careful :-)
It must be a wonderful feeling to have family and friends thinking of you, with so many bouquets and gifts. I hardly get flowers on my birthday from my mom, lol. I enclosed a nice photo for you. Take care.

Happy Belated birthday Amy . Sorry I'm late , but have only just found your blog and I didn't even see Sandras ! I don't know whats happening on my page, but I was just notified of a blog from someone who wrote the beginning of March, which I commented on and its appeared again !
I hope you have had your fair share of illness now and have a healthy Spring and Summer ! x
