It was my birthday last week.
It sort of came and went with not much fuss.
It's ok. Birthdays aren't quite as exciting as they used to be.
I was lucky to have a sleep in.
We went out for a yummy dinner.
I was given some beautiful flowers, crafty sewing books and a bunch of little treats.
I also got lots of hugs and kisses. More than usual, that is.
Then on Saturday, my husband disappeared for a walk through the market
and returned with a special little parcel for me.
It was this lovely blown glass beaded necklace.
Handmade by a fellow Salamanca Market stallholder and friend, Jemma.
She's a very talented glass artist who makes beautiful jewellery, perfume bottles and beads.
Aren't I lucky...?
It's an original, it's beautiful, and I just love the colours.
