i did not plan on turning 43 today, no sirree.
i planned on staying 42 for another year and then turning 44 next year.
to me it seemed a perfectly perfect cunning plan.
however it would appear my 'lads of three' have other plans...
whilst i wait for their return to the shed this afternoon,
i shall spend my happy day wisely doing what i like to do best...
feeling a little crafty.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays whether you celebrate 43 or a repeat of 42. Happy crafting.
Have a wonderful day!
A very happy birthday to you. It was my 40th on Sunday so I did what I do best - went out for lunch! We had a Sunday roast at my favourite pub and then came back home for a snuggle on the sofa with our new four legged friend. Hope you enjoyed your day of crafting. xx
May you have the Happiest of Birthdays Dear Lady!! :) Your plan was first rate and I wish it could work out that way for us!!! :)
Thank you for blessing the internet with your lovely self...your writing and creations are an inspiration!!!
Feeling a little crafty on your birthday...woohoo!

Ah, as W. S. Gilbert so wisely said "She may very well pass for 43 in the dusk with the light behind her". Happy birthday, dear Tif, 43 is nothing, believe me.
* Sing Now*
Happy Birthday to you,
happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Tif/Dottie Aaannggeell,
Happy Birthday to you!!!
Oh splendid, splendid!
Happy 43rd Tif, I hope you have the most peachy, perfect day my lovely :o)
Kindest regards as always,
P.s. I spy a little present from Speedy....he has returned?
Pps. I shall be emailing you some pics as soon as I load them up! :o)
A very many happy returns to you Tif - 43 of them in fact. :-)
Just a quickie if I may; I received your book a couple of days ago (pre-ordered and very swiftly posted to old blighty) - it, my dear, is an absolute delight. It is honest, well-written, inspiring and completely charming. You should be extremely proud. I read it from cover to cover last night - the last time I did that with a book was, ahem, some years ago. Keep being you and don't ever change.
PS. I lived in Shillington when you were about 8 years old - we used to shop at Hitchin market too. Aah, nostalgia ...
*H*A*P*P*Y* * *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*!*!*!* to you, Ms. Tif!
Sounds like you have 3 great guys to make the day special for you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Happiest of Happy Birthdays to you :)
And what a great picture!
Happy Birthday Tiff! Have a lovely day, doing exactly what you like, making lovely things!
Happy Birthday Sunshine!!!!
Happy Birthday! Don't eschew "43"; it's a prime number!
HAPPY CRAFTY BIRTHDAY!
Happy Birthday Tif...hope it's a fabulous one!!
Happy birthday! I hope you are having a wonderful day :)
What a pretty picture :)
A VERY Happy Birthday to you!! 43 is nothin'....just ask me...who turned 51 this past March!!
Hippo, Birdy, Two Ewes, Hippo, Birdy, Two Ewes.........
Love the plan Tif, unfortunately they never seem to go the way we expect.
I was always going to stay forty something, but when I got to forty nine, I had run out of numbers so then came the ----- something.
I'm living proof that it's not as painful as it sounds,
Best wishes for a wonderful day and the coming year.
happy snappy birthday to you miss tif. enjoy your day that was made just for you only you. i love your assortment of happy birthday creations. many moons of birthday cake to you
Happy Happy Birthday, believe me 53 is worse, especially when instead of getting flowers or choccies or a girly lunch out you get pancreatitis on your birfday(I'm not whinging - it was a great way to kick start my diet)
Enjoy every minute of your day, I hope you get lots of love and attention and cuddles.
HEY LADY, my birthday is tomorrow! Happy birthday to us fabulous Virgos :)
Aww, happy birthday!
I just turned 43 last month. It's not bad :)
Birthday. I hope you eat cake all day long.

yep, i did not think i would say it, but is is grand to be 43, truly grand and i feel most fortunate indeed.
i have been a little crafty and i have been a little talky with my clan far far away...

thank you for the lovely feedback on the book, i cannot begin to even tell you how much it means to me!
Happy, happy birthday Tif, hope you have a wonderful day with your 'lads of three'!
Aaw - happy birthday, Tif! :) I hope the shed (and your lads...) spoiled you!!
oh tif happy happy birthday! i have a friend who thought all one year she was 37 when she was only 36....she REALLY did...! and i must say, i must RAVE that the book is so far past divine they have not yet invented a word to describe the divine-ness of it....i am spending all my time in the big chair glued to the pages...in love!
Why...Happy 43rd Tif! Hope it's sunshiny peaceful in your neck of the woods.
tif, so glad to hear you've found a perfect way to spend your day. 43 is a delightful age, you will no doubt make wonderful things at this year.

Happy birthday to you....it was so wonderful meeting you at the creative connection...I really think that was the highlight of my visit to St. Paul...you are ever so delightful! Your book is wonderfully sweet and your lovely creative buddies Janine and Jessie were just as cute as ever.I know Jo fell head over heels for you girls as well! Hope to cross paths again sometime soon ...xoxoxo

Happy Birthday, wish all the happiness for all your 43 year....
Congratulations, hope you had a nice day. I received your book on your birthday yesterday. I love it, I enjoyed my evening with reading and looking at the beautiful pictures.
Have a very lovely birthday Tif, I adored my 40's but am feeling a little surprised at edging into my 50's..... but I hope to be living proof that a new life can begin at whatever age your birth certificate insists on telling you that you are :)
Happy Birthday Tif, have a wonderful day!
