I said I didn't want one...

.....but as usual I was ignored completely and ended up getting a cake anyway. They even put my age on it so I couldn't forget and pretend otherwise.

As for my birthday present from Pete it was one of these....

He wasn't supposed to be getting me anything as the Canon 40d was my early birthday present last month and the Tamron lens was an even earlier birthday present the month before that but he said he couldn't resist getting me one of these as he thought it would be fun to watch me in pain!!! I could be getting very hairy from now on as so far I have only managed to epilate one shin!

Happy Birthday, Rach! 38 - aint it a great age to be? Still 30's but with a bit of life experience to realise that in your 20s we actually knew bugger all! I love that pressie that Pete bought you - but is it legal? It looks like something the Spanish Inquisition would use on the poor buggers/victims who were unfortunate enough to receive attention. Scary! What do you do with it? Ax

PS great pics as usual - am loving the results from your 40D!

Fabulous shot with your cake :-) And I suppose you just had to eat a slice, or two :-D

Epilators are brilliant. To get confidence run it over the back of your hand :-) Start with knees and shins for best results. You honestly won't look back, I promise you. I never use it under my arms though!!! LOL :-D

So looking forward to Wednesday :-)

My Mum passed on 5 years ago. My Dad and her divorced when I was 10. He remarried, since divorced again, and our realtionship has had more downs than ups :-( This visit will be a challenge!

BFN . . . Sue :-)

Great birthday/ cake shot!

That pressie looks far too scary for me. But at least you shouldn't get the ankle injury again!! :)

I love the cake shot, it was really mean of them to put your age on it though - but more relevant than everything did it taste good? You are allowed a break for a slice of cake on your birthday!!

Hope that you had a fantastic day, and as for Pete and the present - men!!
