30?! Really?!

Birthdays are so much more fun with children around! Simon gave me a present before he left for work - before James and Eleanor were up. As he left, he mentioned that James had something for me (in case James forgot). James emerged not long after, saw the present on my bed, and scampered back to his room, gabbling about a present in his cupboard that he was getting for me. He brought it in climbed up on the bed with me and said Happy Birthday, before letting me open my own present! Then he (therefore we!) had to sing happy birthday! Then he wanted cake and candles! So tonight we got a delicious orange chocolate mud cake, and Simon put plenty of candles on it (which James helped me blow out 3 times!). He loved the cake, and eager Eleanor had a tiny bit, too!James also helped me open the nine squishy envelopes which have arrived as part of the EB Quilters' birthday FQ swap. I'll post about them properly when they have all arrived, but here's a peek for Adds who couldn't wait!There were also several more cards, and (yippee!) a parcel containing this:
