Spoilings


It was my birthday over a week ago but it's only just now that the spoilings are coming to an end. I have enjoyed dinners with family, champagne breakfasts with my favourite friends, beers and rugby, gifts, treats, cuddles, kisses and all the attention a self absorbed almost thirty* year old could hope for.

I've been given clothes, perfume, furniture, books, music and more - but you know what my favourite part was?  The cards. Those customised, love filled little pieces of paper containing the hand writing of the people I love. 

The cards that tell stories of shared pasts and hopeful futures.

Heres to that! 




* PLEASE NOTE, IM NOT 30. I'm so young.

  9. I am a firm believer in a birthday week ... glad you got one this year! This year I think I will officially be classed as 'late 20s' ... I think this means I need to start being responsible?

  12. My birthday was a few days ago too, and I'm the same. Love the cards. I however, am one year past the 30 mark. Why does that sound SO much older than 29??
