My day started with a text from Mother, right when my alarm went off. Her timing was pretty impeccable.
My colleague met me at the station and we got the train to work. Usually we drive but today's plans called for public transport...
Minion birthday paper! I got some fabby Game of Thrones/knitting themed gifts too, and a voucher for Cup, which means I'll be eating cake for months to come. We all crowded into the staff room and had cake for breakfast and since I requested no singing, everyone whistled the Happy Birthday song.
Pre-cake, I sent a quick entry in for the Let's Knit Top 5 Reader Makes competition on Twitter - I do this every time and figured birthday luck might help me out this week, and it did. My chevron baby blanket won! I have no idea yet what I've won, but the victory is sweet :)
We were all looking super hot in our steel toecap boots, vests and hard hats. My boots were a size small since they'd run out of mine, so it was a slightly painful walk about.
