Today is (or nearly was) The Old One's Birthday.
He really is A Lot Older Than Me and, despite his idiosyncrasies, I love him to bits.
The Young One got up early and arrived in our bedroom with his normal breakfast of brioche, confiture and coffee.
His birthday present from us was The King's Speech as we thought he'd like something we can all enjoy (ulterior motive there!).
We had a relatively quiet day until a long standing friend arrived seeking refuge. Out came the rosé and white wines and the carefully planned birthday supper turned into mayhem!
However, in between the celebrations I found a quiet moment and started to hand quilt something which I've been wanting to do for ages.
I'm using a cotton batt which I've never quilted with before. Finding it interesting.
More soon (got to finish off that bottle of rosé).
