Beyond Excited! The Best Birthday Gifts Possible!

I am a lover of all things Apple and when the new IPad came out it was way-y-y-y-y-y up there on my wish list. I can;t say that I thought I would be lucky enough to get one but darned if I didn't!! DH says it's from the cats but I know they had a lot of help!  I got the WiFI 64gb model and it is absolutely amazing! As with anything techno - there is a small learning curve but I have already downloaded some books for the road. I have to say that I am SO glad that I waited for the IPad to use as a book reader. The quality is really amazing and the ease of page turning with a slight flick of your finger is fabulous. I also was provided with a nice Apple cover and I have ordered a screen protector - just because I get them for all things Apple! I am so excited and have already spent hours playing with this!

 Another item that has been on my wish list for a long time is this amazing set of Addi Turbo interchangeable knitting needles
It has a truly superior lock system and a join that is flawless and smooth!

I have also been longing to have this book - which is after the exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The wait was worth it - fantastic book! Yes, a review will be forthcoming!! Now I have to get back to some serious play. 
In another real blessing - one of my dearest friends sent me a gift certificate for Dick Blick's so it looks like I can also get some PanPastels really soon. Am I in heaven right now? You betcha !!

Enjoy! You've earned it.
Cats are, I find, extremely good present-choosers! And the book is wonderful - you will enjoy it!

Oh and happy birthday from me too!
