Happy Birthday to me and my Blog!!!!

Imagine my surprise today when I came home from a lovely day out to find this beautiful cake sitting on my doorstep.

The Cake Woman Extraordinaire had come to pay a visit - kind of like the tooth fairy really, but very unexpected though - perhaps I shall have to start calling her The Cake Fairy Extraordinaire (CFE)!!!!

Can this day get any better?

I started the day off with a little "me time".  Went to the "panel beaters" to get a bit of life injected back into the hairdo (read between the lines - eliminate gray hairs!!).  Then it was off to lunch!!  Mr. CCC was taking me for a seafood extravaganza by the water - the only hiccup was that it was raining - but one can overlook such minor technicalities if one has to.

So what is the big occasion you ask???  Well today is a milestone - in fact this week is a milestone.  CataCanCook, the blog, turned 1 year old!!!! and I, the author turned the big 50!!!!  So it's Happy Birthday to me and my Blog!!

Thank you to all my readers that have followed me during the past year. It has been a fun and rewarding experience for me.  I have made lots of new friends along the way, and I hope that the next year brings more of the same!

Thank you so much "CFE" for the lovely cake - you have made my day with your thoughtfulness!!!
