Views from Shoshi's Settee - My Birthday

It's now after midnight (2 a.m. to be precise!) so it's officially my birthday!!!!!

My hubby went out to a barbecue tonight - I cried off as I was pretty tired, it was raining which makes it difficult with my Rolls Royce (wheelchair) and when we went to those people before it was very noisy and I didn't really know anyone. They were very nice, but it was just too much effort to invest in something like that.

We are going to friends for a barbecue tomorrow anyway. Last time we went it rained, and the forecast isn't good for tomorrow... Well, what do you expect? It's a Bank Holiday weekend and it always rains on Bank Holidays!

Anyway, I shall enjoy my birthday!

When my hubby got back this evening, since it was actually my birthday by then, he gave me my presents. Yes, presentSSSS! Plural!!! The kitties and the teddies gave me some choccies (Lindor - I love those!) and my hubby has given me not one, but two, beautiful new kaftans. They are actually Middle-Eastern abayas. One is very dark brown chiffony material over a creamy-beige lining which shows through slightly, and it is covered with the most glorious embroidery with tiny hologram sequins which reflect the light. I do love my bling!! The other one is dark red (my favourite colour) velvet, also with beautiful embroidery. I haven't tried them on yet but they look nice and big - they should be quite baggy. I spend a lot of time wearing kaftans as I find it hard to get up in the mornings, and always get dressed after breakfast. If someone comes to the door I feel better wearing a kaftan than a dressing gown - mid-morning I feel as if I ought to have my hair in curlers and have a fag hanging out the corner of my mouth if I'm still in my night things! If I'm in a kaftan I do at least look dressed even if it's covering a multitude of sins! They are lovely and comfortable to wear (the kaftans, not the sins!) and they really suit my style and personality. I've always loved ethnic clothes.

When I can get some photos taken, I'll post them.


  1. HAPPY Birthday :)

  2. Thanks Renee! I am going to enjoy today because we're going to a barbecue and so far the sun is shining! Praise the Lord!
