A really unexpected gift (of flowers and some toiletries) from a casual friend (as in we don't tend to socialise much together but talk and get on at well when we end up in the same place - usually because our kids are doing something in common). She's a lovely lady and obviously thinks a lot of me from what she put on the gift tag
How lovely and even more so because so unexpected.
Yes indeed that's what I meant. A really lovely surprise. The gift itself (nice though it was) was not so relevant to my happiness. It was the surprise and what was on the card that did it.

I have a new baby!
Her name's Milly and she's 7 weeks old. Oh, and she's a hamster!
She's gorgeous!!!! If you are ever stuck for a hamster sitter let me know.....
We should have a "beasties picture thread!!"
And my happy today?
Just got back from an instrumental concert at the local primary and heard some really impressive playing.
Some lovely moments from:
beginners taking their first tentative steps to very accomplished performances both solo and ensemble. Seeing a reluctant performer take her first solo performance (some of you met her at York playday 2009) and she did sooo well - Space age sonatina - a new one on me but I liked it.
The girl who lost it in her piano solo and struggled to pull it back but after an uncomfortable break she pulled the ending off and the applause was so warm... etc etc etc.
And a few stars in the making...?
A really nice evening
