It was my birthday!

On the 28th.
I went to school in the morning.
It was fun playing a recycling game with my 5th graders.
I treated my fellow teachers with this orange pie. Every one loved it.You can find the recipe here.
Coming home I was met with a happy family. Hubby,son, Barca!
I cleaned after Barca, ate fish soup made by hubby, unfortunately not very successful one, and spent the rest of the day with school preparartion and answering e-mails, phone calls and saying thank you to facebook Happy Birthdays! Ok.I would prefer a more lively one, but hubby was under the weather, son was at after school tutoring and Barca was restless!
Anyway here are my gifts.
Hubby updated my computer so now it is much much faster!Great I can blog faster! He also got me a SonyExperia White with his mobile contract for a very good reduced price. But he had given me that weeks ago!I am not yet used to it!Smartphones, my....!What does the name mean? That you should be extra smart to use them?Those touch screen tactile features are beyond me!Anyway I will get used to it!

Have I told you that the day I got my new mobile I found a Samsung Galaxy in the street? Fortunately I found the owner as well and returned it!
My mum brought me lovely roses.
"She is taking photos! I can go out!"

 "Are they edible?"
Another gift was the blooming of my Christmas cactus.
Finally I received some birthday cards and gifts.
Birthday cards from Brigitte in France, Maria Jose from the Acores, Carolyn and Cathy in England.
" I won't eat those they belong to you!"
And gifts.
Cross stitch magazines from Brigitte.
 Tea cards and Cottage Gardens booklet from Cathy.
Thank you every one for the lovely wishes, gifts, cards, warm thoughts for me!
