Aw, they piped your name on the cake. Are we adding quilter and mad cat lady to that list yet? xx

Di said...

Happy Birthday! I'd add cleaner too (first post of yours that I ever read was about sweeping the dust bunnies into the heating duct outlets. Always makes me chuckle when I think of it ;))

The List Writer said...

Happy Birthday! May your year be filled with chocolate cake.

Stacey said...

All that and much much more. Happy birthday, Suse.

Happy Happy Birthday Dear Suse! What a wonderful resume those years have stamped upon you. And I have to admit -- I went back and read the housecleaning post. The bit about the dead flies and the heating duct is hysterical -- I'm trying to figure out how I'll manage to remember that gem of a tip!

zephyr said...

Happy, Happy Day Suse!!!
That cake looks fabulous. Hope the kitty gave you a day off from nips and bites!

zephyr said...

Oh. And you are also a magpie conversationalist. Loved hearing you talk with them in those videos you posted last year.

Martina said...

Happy Birthday Suse! Who made the cake? Hopefully not you! With all you are you need a bit of a break!!

the nest said...

Happy Birthday! I'm sure that list only covers the tip of your attributes. I'll bet that cake was delicious!

Harriet said...

Lynn said...

Steiner recruiter? Melbourne promoter? Long-lost cousin from hundreds of years back?

Happy birthday, fellow 47er! Hope it is/was the very best ever.

(I need to know more about this cello thing - how did I miss that??)

ellen said...

Happy Birthday. You never, ever fail to bring a smile to my face and many times full blown out laughter. You are a keeper.

Eleanor said...

One more sleep to go, and then I can give you your birthday hug!!

gis said...

Happy birthday, Suse, and thanks for your beautiful blog. Maybe also blogger extraordinaire?

flowerpress said...

Happy happy birthday, that's a pretty wonderful list - perhaps you better mention that sweet dog of yours too in case it gets jealous ;-).

alice c said...

It is still the 9th here - so I wish you Happy Birthday and make your special day stretch over 36 hours - time traveller?

shadygrey said...

Happy Birthday, Mrs Soup.

Happy Birthday Susan - I turned 38 on the weekend and titled my post '38'. Lol

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

You might just hear a faint and very belated chorus of "Happy Birthday To You" making its way from Friesland , if you point your head in the right direction .
I've enlisted the help of five of the loudest pre-schoolers and we've practised hard .... but the English words keep tripping a couple of them up . Never mind , I think we've got the tune right .
Here goes !!

Happy Birthday to a Recorder of Australian Life.

christinelaennec said...

A belated birthday to you! You left out "original and funny blogger" from your list I think? I hope you had a great day and that this next year brings many blessings.

Mary said...

So so late.

In Adelaide reading on my phone.

Please add kindred spirit .

Love that you are 47 as well.

Happy birthday !

Duyvken said...

Happy happy birthday! I hope it was a truly wonderful day. xx

The Awakened Heart said...

Happy Birthday Mrs! How lovely to be so appreciated, even if one of your labels is 'house cleaner'. I HATE house cleaning. It is evil and must be stopped
Your retreat looked all awesomeness again. I have craft envy. I will email you for some Steiner advice if you don't mind. Wee girl is school ready next year! argh!
