I had a birthday this week....
I turned the big
4 0 ...
I got totally spoiled....
Mr Tiff bought me my dream camera...
and I got the most gorgeous flowers,
so I had to test drive my new macro lens....

can you hear my excitement from there???!!!
I played with the settings...
I am pleased with my first attemps
with the auto turned off!!!

I got overwhelmed with
so many gorgeous gifts
from my lovely friends and workmates
(thanks, you beautiful people!)
and I am going to test out my camera
and take some pictures of them
to share very soon...
but I had to show these
pretty pretty flowers today!
Also, I have to tell you a sweet story...
one of my students bought
me some of these glorious blooms,
and later when I also thanked his mum,
she told me he bought it
with his pocket money with
no prompting from her...
doesn't that just make you heart sing?!
I told him that he was real gentleman!!!
I am out to a surprise birthday lunch
with girl friends ...
don't know where I am going....
