happy things

x. We had a birthday lunch for my Mum at our place today, and it turned out wonderfully; my sister and Nan, plus Mum, Noel & I. We cooked enchiladas, oriental rice and salad, and had chocolate bavarian cake for dessert (and I didn't burn any of it!) Noel & I had discovered this wonderful party shop in the city, and brought a whole collection of Elvis Presley themed decorations (streamers, table cloth, napkins, plates etc) for the occasion, as Mum is an Elvis fan, and I thought she would get a laugh out of it. We wanted to make it a really special day for her, as it's her first birthday since Dad died, and we knew it would be difficult. I think she really enjoyed it though, and it was so lovely to see her look happy, and enjoying a day that was for her.

x. I introduced my sister to BPAL today, and she fell in love with The Candy Butcher scent. I gave her my imp of it, and will order her a bottle of it soon. Eeee yay, I love introducing people to BPAL :D I am seriously addicted. You have no idea.

Noel is slightly worried as my perfume collection is starting to take over the dresser. Hmmm.

x. I finished reading Neil Gaiman's Stardust last night, and I absolutely loved it. I was going to wait until after I saw the movie, as I have a tendency to be disappointed with book-to-movie translations, but I just couldn't wait any longer. I adore books that take me into whole other worlds.

x. If there is anyone else on facebook that I haven't added yet, feel free to say hi :)
