I am the Answer...

If you are a fan of Douglas Adams you'll get this.

Yes, today I'm...

Or, to put it another way, I'm celebrating the 21st anniversary of my 21st birthday party...

If you still haven't cottoned on... it's my birthday and I'm 42. (I know, I know, I don't look a day over 50. Ha ha.)

My sweet kids gave me these things this morning

(they chose the cards themselves - thanks D)

I treated myself to this beautiful handbag pattern (from eBay - a bargain!)...
(can't wait to find just the right fabric) and this delightful piece by Gradum Gypsies on Etsy, which I luuuurve!
But what I'm really looking forward to this birthday is actually on Saturday, when I'm going here...
