Birthday lunch

Woke up to lots of lovely presents - seeds, a book and chocs from M, lots of rather random stuff from my friend Sophie and some really nice things from Dave - perfume, an Istanbul cookbook and more extremely luxurious chocs.

Then Dave ran off to get his tyres changed and I went and stocked up at the farmers' market bringing back some nice stuff for lunch - asparagus, crab, smoked seabass and organic salady bits.

Mum came round to give me a Sibelius book as an extra present (having already got me and Dave a new Le Creuset pot) and we enjoyed lunch with some sloe gin fizz.

Mum left, then Dave and I went off to catch Far From The Madding Crowd at the cinema. Very enjoyable and admirable performances from the leads and beautifully filmed, even if they cut my favourite lines from the book.

Happy Birthday :)

I'm going to re-read Far From the Madding Crowd this month as I've booked a seat at my favourite independent cinema to see in early next month :)
