The snow is still lingering in places, despite the fact it’s been raining most of today, and it looked beautiful for my birthday. I had a lovely time, spent fairly quietly with family. My grandparents came to visit for the day (I hadn’t seen them for about a year) and we caught up on family news, played a few games and had a delicious chocolate birthday cake which I’d baked the day before. I was very happy to receive a DVD recorder and a velvet throw for my flat from my parents along with a few other things. I then spent yesterday shopping (I got a tax rebate this month, and desperately needed a new coat), followed by a party at a friends house – her birthday is the day after mine, and we always manage to meet up at some point this time of year. And then tonight we’re going out for a meal to celebrate my graduating. All in all it’s been a wonderful holiday, but I can see the return to Ireland and work fast approaching…

I’ve done a bit of work on the website, giving it a winter theme and adding a dolls section. I’m just starting work on a new doll from a class by Barbara Schoenoff – I’ll put up pictures as she grows.
