It was my birthday on Monday & despite not feeling much like celebrating I was very spoilt! I didn’t send out a birthday list but I am impressed by all the presents I’ve received. I really am very lucky & very loved.
Upon getting home from work I was greeted by pretty birthday bunting & balloons that my amazingly lovely OH had decorated our dining area with. Not only that but he had my chai ready & waiting to make for me. And he’d bought fancy Waitrose cupcakes with girly little candles in. I was so surprised! (It’s possible that I might have cried a little bit! I’d had a bit of a poo day at work!) I was also promised tea of my choice which is always a Chinese takeaway. Not only that but my Super OH had explored a few takeaways in the area for me to pick my favourite one. It was lush!
My presents were all displayed on the kitchen table ready for me to open. I was really amazed by the generosity of my family & friends (including you Mum!) I got some really amazing presents including some sew-your-own Owls (complete with home), make your own candles, some super lush Jo Malone Red Roses perfume, Double Stuff Oreo’s & a beautiful bottle of Hendricks Gin. I cannot wait to have a go at making all these things & eating my oreos while drinking some lush gin.
However, the present of the day came from my lovely OH. I have been going on about Mollie Makes magazine for ages since it exploded over Twitter. I’ve been looking for the first one but to no avail. Not only have I now got a subscription but I actually have a copy of the magazine, which I am going to read through as soon as I’ve finished this blog post. I was so shocked to open it up! Outstanding!
