I feel so lucky, here's what I received from family for my birthday. I have to admit I picked out my presents except for the ones in the last photo.
MY VERY OWN PRESSURE CANNER!!!! This will be awesome for all of my preserving.
This hand-painted canvas is huge, I wish I could properly show you the texture. It's gorgeous, is perfect for our lounge and it was 1/2 price :)
Some new flats that I desperately needed, also 1/2 price.
and lastly my very special presents that the kids bought me. Lachie got me one of my favourite movies, The Castle. He knew that I'd been trying to find a copy of it for a long, long time. Sophie bought me the magnet, it's so sweet and so thoughtful. Dan gave me a big hug, I love that he still wants to hug me.
