Some more presents to show you, then I'll stop droning on about my birthday.

There were lots of lovely cards

and this one was hand-made by Annie. Isn't she clever?

But what's all this that fell out of it? Birthday confetti!

There was this very appropriate card from Sally

and this one from Liz:

In case you can't manage to read it, it says, "Now she had reached 60 and recalling her doctor's advice to eat more fruit, she popped off to put some cherries in her gin." A wise woman.

There was another flower, on this beautiful Limoges dish from my friends Roberta and Roberto

and some memories of Wales from a close friend there - with more confetti!

Another close friend from Cardiff sent me this lovely necklace

and some British chocolate! [A girl has to be international when it comes to chocolate.]

This lovely jewellery is from my hairdresser, Raffaele [who came to the party early to do my hair] and the salon staff:

A group of Modican friends joined together to get me a classy outfit and Irma took me to choose it last Saturday. The trousers are in plain black velvet:

There was luxurious bubble bath and body lotion from my student Catia,

these pretty French bowls from my student Daniela

and this picture to brighten up my sitting room from Rosa and family:

Cathy my boss paid for the party and made a lot of people happy.

But the greatest gift of all is friendship.
