It's my birthday! (again)

41 today.

Feels better than 40 actually. Got a heap of ravelry pm's which was really nice.

I have been nominated for a recent blog award by another blogger (who lives a life so far away, and so different, I have to thank the internet for enabling us to see each other's lives) and also by two people whose esteem it now appears mattered more to me than I would have ever admitted. Thank you wittyknitter and pompom, I was very flattered.

The dog, though, isn't impressed with his new haircut.

The trip to the grooming shop made him really tired.

Hardly the same animal from last week, remember?

I got some beautiful hand-knitted socks, and I took a picture, but it looks rubbish so I'll have to take another one to do them justice. Thank you Donna and Kate.

Happy Birthday! Sorry I missed the actual day but hope you had a great day and the pup didn't stay cross with you for too long!

Happy birthday - I hope you had a good day. I love the picture of your dog - he looks as though he's got the right hump!

I hope you had a lovely birthday and the weather certainly was great for relaxing and celebrating.

Your dog looks adorable with it's new hair cut. (maybe slightly naked though).
