I'm so lucky......

This post would have fitted very nicely with yesterday's because I am thanking my lovely family for some wonderful birthday presents. My grandchildren painted me pictures,
Beccy made me some really pretty note cards, and she and Julian bought me a flight voucher so that I can go and visit them.
Sam sent me something rather special for my computer as you can see from the these photos
For those who are wondering what this is have a look here. I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with this~ once I've managed to install it~ on reading the instructions the first thing it's telling me to do is turn off my virus protection program.... do I have one of these on my mac......haven't a clue......help Sam.... now I have to wait until this afternoon to speak to you...can't wait ....must have patience...anyone who knows me will understand how difficult this is!!!!

PS Sam now I see how you created your Question of the Day!

Happy birthdY Chris. It Australia's birthday today so we are celebrating with a BBQ in the park.

Happy Birthday Chris xoxoxo! I said it on yesterday's post, but this is probably the correct place, so I'll say it again.

Do you remember when I stopped blogging a while back, and then said I got a new toy so I might start again? Well that Bamboo tablet and stylus is the toy that I got! That's what I've been doing those pun photos with. Mine is slightly different (I think it's an older model as it was on sale)

Happy Happy Birthday! I'm sorry I missed it yesterday. Enjoy the gifts. That Bamboo looks fun.

Well Happy Birthday! I am going to be looking into the Bamboo for myself. Looks like tons of fun. :)
