Birthday Treats

It was my birthday yesterday, we don't celebrate birthdays and I've had great fun over the years with the kids trying to work out when my birthday is and never quite managing.

This year they seem to have clocked on and Little Lady made me this card which she got all of the kids to sign. She managed to get my age wrong by an age, but it was one year less than the right number, so who's complaining.

My mum also popped round in the morning with these beautiful scarves.  The one in the middle is from Oasis and a nice warm fabric which is also smart enough for work.  The other two are from Accessorize and the butterfly one is a beautiful lightweight fabric.  The white one is very soft, but I'm not sure I'll be able to wear the skull print.

She also bought me a  pretty charm bracelet and some very pretty sparkly little hoop earrings (which I can't seem to take a decent picture of on my iPhone to save my life).

I was looking something up on the internet, when I saw the graphic below and wondered who shared a birthday with me.  I hovered over the Google image to find out it was for me.  I don't like how connected different sites on the web are and how everything speaks to each other - such as when I look at an item on a shop and then it starts appearing in adverts across other sites.  I think internet companies have become very invasive of our privacy and there is something that feels slightly predatory about the aggressive marketing and sharing of information between sites.  Still, it's a nice little graphic.
