Birthday pressies can be a tricky business can they not? Whilst I love choosing them for others I am TERRIBLE at offering useful and meaningful birthday suggestions for myself. So I don’t. Which and potentially lead to disappointment because I usually expect people to read my mind. What’s with that? But this year I got the loveliest selection of gifts that were just so perfect that I had to share. In my loot was:
: This gorgeous tea towel from my brother (well his wife who has impeccable taste) and a very good sense go humour. Look at the bag that it came in! Also not shown was a pair of pi’s of the softest loveliest fabric that will be flogged come summer.
: Actually I lied! I did ask for a pair of secateurs and I was delivered: a pair of secateurs. YES!
: My mother in law got me these GORGEOUS place cards for my next dinner party. Kate Spade nonetheless. Sch-wing!
: Notebooks are essential for creative people and Rob nailed it with this hot one. It’s going in my handbag and it’s going to be filled with amazing ideas. Just try and stop me.
: And this one (GET SHIT DONE) so I can get my shit, um, done.
: Can we talk about this vase/jar/hot display item from my sister. It doesn’t know what it is all I know is that I FREAKING LOVE IT.
: Mum and Step dad got me a new cast iron cooking pot. Actually…TWO. Beside myself with joy because there ain’t nothing better than cooking in one of these.
Aren’t I luckiest duckiest? Loved the entire lot and feel very spoilt…because I was!
