A Little Birdie..(miss CUrly Pops).....

A Little Birdie named Curly Pops sent out a little mission for me to recieve a lot of Happy Birthday wishes yesterday!! My big sister can be a little sneaky and only when I read Curlypops Blog that I realised what she was up to?!

I am sure everyone saw those very attractive photos of me in my special Chefs Hat?! The nephews had a good laugh at me, and it fitted my big head really well!

Not only did Curlypops make me a Chefs Hat she also gave me this bag that I have had my eye on for quite a while! Anyone who knows me knows I love purple and I love this purple fabric, although my camera does not do it justice it is DIVINE!!! Thanks big sis!!

After I read all of my wonderful birthday wishes I realised I have not blogged for a very long time, so here is an update photo of my cabinet from my last post.. Retro Canisters, Corningware Pots and lots of cool stuff I love!
RAMBLING AHEAD!!
I would really like to say thanks to Cam for my suprise from blog land and every single blogger who sent me good wishes, just goes to show you never know how you may affect someones day with a good wish or a good deed?
I had a wonderful morning, slept in, Mr S made me coffee in bed then back to sleep with my three dogs on their beds inside...
Mr S bought me a beautiful set of White gold and diamond earrings that match my wedding rings. Firstly great present and secondly he managed to keep a secret...
Birthdays are a funny thing, you get excited about little cards and gifts and the you realise you are 34 and haven't quite done everything that you may have thought you would by this age...
We had a car accident 4 weeks ago and since then I have thought about the what ifs??
Did I do what I love! Who would look after our dogs etc..
What I love about crafty bloggers is that these people do what they love, they may never get rich from selling handmade but they are following their crafty hearts and doing what makes them happy!
After the initial excitement of my bday I was a little sad thinking about a few things I should be changing in my life. When I opened up my blog and saw so many wishes from people I may or may not know it warmed my heart and I may never meet you but I am ever grateful for well wishes....
So I am really going to organise myself this year:
Should anything happen, then Sophie my Silky Terrier is going to live with Curlypops!
Shelby our black Labrador and Socket my Chihuahua cross goes to my inlaws..
We never think about these things but now I have written it I feel better knowing there is aplan should anything ever happen......Whoa thats hard to write..
I work in a job I don't really like in the same industry since I was 15 years old. Having Curlypops find her love for craft over the past few years I always thought what is my passion? Will I ever work it out??
I enjoy some craft and sewing etc but really my passion is Op Shops and collecting retro items for my house!
So here it goes, my back should be better soon from the Car accident and I have been talking about holding a stall at the Mill Market for quite while. But I think its time, I need to just do it!
So over the next few weeks, back to blogging and reading blogs, organise my stall of collectibles, get a tattoo(I want to get THE ESSESS tattooed somewhere?)
And time to put my self first, do what I want to do! I am sure other people get the pressure of looking after family and spending time with them when it doesnt suit you and keeping the peace etc..
My family is fine but certain inlaws have been pushing the boundaries! Mr S and myself will be saying NO for now on and living and doing what we want.....
This may seem like rambling and I apologise but I feel much better writing this down and relieving myself from the pressure!
Thanks for my birthday wishes they really did arrive when I needed it most! And stay tuned, someone is celebrating a birthday very soon!! I have a couple of weeks to think of a plan for Miss Curlypops! Very lucky to have a good sister and great people in the land of Bloggers...........

Ha ha you'd better not be planning any shenanigans for me!

It sounds like Curly Pops plan worked well. Writing it down is like a commitment. Your life is yours. I still cannot see why and how people think they have a right to push others around. And 34 still gives you lots of time. Love the blue and white corningware too as my Mum had pots in this pattern. Cherrie

Also I have your weakness for op shops. It is sooo very hard to leave the house to pick up bread and milk and not go just around the corner on the way there to stop in for a quick look. Cherrie

Hey-Happy Birthday, sorry I missed it!
Definately have a stall at the Mill Market-but which one, I guess you'll do Daylesford. They stallies are really nice, very helpful and in need of more good stalls like I'm sure you will have. Ballarat is becoming a buzz of fun too, if you need advertising for your site, we'd love to do a feature on the Mill Blog! let me know - Kelly x
