Happy Happy Happy....

Good morning ladies, hope you are all well. Did everyone have a super Halloween, I sure did.
I was really spoiled. My eldest girl bought me a Pandora bracelet and my first charm, a pumpkin, how fabby is that. My youngest bought me lots of LOTV goodies, all their new stamps(can't wait for a play)  Hubby gave me roses, mmmm, he's not the romantic sort and this is a tad out of character, so if someone is missing roses, Sorry, I will look after them!!!
I got money from friends, bottles of  bubbly stuff and more phew.
I went to lunch with my girls, sister and best buddy(I gave myself the day off, hee hee) and had a lovely time and when the manager came over to see if there was anything else we wanted I said yes, how about singing ' Happy Birthday', he was mortified, but bless him he obliged. We left a tip...for his next singing lesson lol.
Then had friends come over for a birthday tea once hubby got home, don't need to eat for a week at least now...
We only had one set of four trick or treaters though and the poor souls were soaking wet and their make-up had run into one muddy mess. It was such a shame as I look forward to seeing them all dressed up, but thats our weather for you, spoils everything.
Have to eat the sweets myself now( heehee)
