Birthday Girl (the highs and the lows)

Well this is my birthday post, man I get so excited and then always end up emotional, I remember when my Mom used to say 'it will end in tears' it was always at that moment when you just think all is great, sure enough she was usually right. Well today has been a rotten day, all the best laid plans have not happened, I am tired due to being up most nights with my little one, the amount of stuff I have had to get organised over the last couple of weeks has thrown me off balance and all that relaxed creative vibe I had from my week away has just gone up in a poof of smoke. ( Oh Suzie, you are being a moaning mini today)!!!I have previously mentioned that my adoption always raises up some negative rejection type emotions on my birthday. So with the best laid plans gone out the window (my annual trip to a rather special beach camping, nothing like a cool beer on the beach when its one's birthday) I feel I need to take control. So I shall not be blogging until next weekend, I assure you I will have lots to report, it involves lots of sewing and photography so all blog-worthy and obviously my children will be right there with me.


In the mean time I leave you with one of my favourite pictures of Archie, I love this picture and as a card maker this is a popular picture for me to use, especially to fellow knitters. Archie is about 10 weeks old on this picture and would fit into your hand. Just too cute, well actually he needs to be he just peed on one of my quilts today, it had not been bound and I had used thick wadding, so it will all have to be all unpicked so I can wash it and get new padding. Maybe he did me a favour as I had regretted buying such a thick wadding, but felt I had bought it so used it...maybe this way (trying to be positive) I can buy (out of necessity) a better padding.

Its all fun and games round here I tell you. In the mean time thank you for taking the time to keep reading and leaving all those comments, you are great and VERY much appreciated. So this gal is off to get her vibe back!!!

A visit to the post office to send off the giveaways, hope they get to you all in one piece, I enjoyed doing this, there is something about giving that just feels good!!!

Happy Birthday!

It is MY birthday today, so I am surely happy - nothing always goes like we want it to go, but keep up the spirit and adjust to the plans life has laid for your birthday :-)

Happy birthday and I do hope you're "getting your groove back." :) What a sweet picture of Archie!

Lizzie said...

My husband was adopted. He doesn't speak of it very much, but then he is quiet in general. I would love to read your previous posts on adoption, but couldn't find them in the recent blog entries...

I hope your day turned around and you ended up having a nice birthday.

Alison said...

Hi Suzie,
I thought I would just pop over and let you know that I'm back with blogger...don't ask!
Hope the hoilday is going well and your all having fun.
Take care,

Happy Birthday for last week. I always find Birthdays a bit strange. Always used to have tears when I was little, but actually even now I still end up that way on the day. Hope you're feeling a lot better now and have had a good week getting yourself together again.

Vanessa V said...

Oh. Happy Belated Birthday. I have learned over the years, to have a super duper special day for myself when unexpected. I celebrate me, my day. I am very greedy about this day, even thought it happens randomly. I love those days. So, have a little day, another day, and squeeze everything out of it, calling it "Your very secial day." xoxoxo

That Archie is so cute. We are not allowed to have pet rabbits where I live, which is a shame.
