Spoiling me.











Friends and family have been spoiling me today. Phone calls, parcels, cards. Wow!
R got me ( the same gift I am sending to younger son ), without knowing. It is " The Great New Zealand Songbook." It contains 2 CDs of the songs , then all the words written out and presented like a scrapbook. It is all in a box.( a collector's item )
From London younger son sent 2 pieces of glass from the island of Murano in Italy. One a necklace. Other things arrived too; a new book and even my 86 year old favourite Aunt remembered and sent me a card. What a lucky person. Must dash now as some friends are coming for dinner. I made dessert; R is cooking a roast.
Can you hear that NZ music?

Happy Birthday!
A friend sent me the NZ album over to London. Do you favour the Last Century or This Century cd?
Love the cover art, the 4 Square man always reminds me of Ben Board.
