Thanks again to everyone for entering and don’t be too downhearted, there’s plenty more fish in the sea and I will be running another giveaway soon. In the meantime, you could always treat yourself to something nice over at From the Wilde
I warn you now, this is a bit of boasty post. Well aren’t most blog posts a little like that anyway? But you’ll understand why I had to share the following. It was mine and my husband’s wedding anniversary last week. We don’t usually go too crazy. We might try to have a special meal and buy each other a nice card. And as for presents, well, sometimes the mister’s past form has been a bit sketchy (this is the man who once bought me a Thesaurus and a dictionary because I’m a writer – bless him!). So I was very surprised and touched when I got to open a succession of lovely gifts over the course of the day that were… just what I always wanted!!!!
The third anniversary is traditionally celebrated with leather, so the first gift I opened was a lovely little leather-bound notebook in duck egg blue.
I thought that was my lot, but then I got two gorgeous notebooks from Paperchase (I love stationery and I write a lot, so these are always a winner).
Then just before I sat down to breakfast, I was given the third present so I could enjoy my boiled egg in it.
Then later on I opened this book on Joanna Lumley (as some of you may know, I have a big crush on her!), which I’m looking forward to dipping into with some yummy chocolate treats from Hotel Chocolat.
But the piece de resistance has to be this gorgeous vintage-style cake stand, which really made me squeal! I have organised a royal wedding tea party just so I can use it.
I’ve decided that when I’m not serving cake on it, I will use it to display jewellery on my dressing table so it can do double duty. Well some things are too nice to save just for best!
As you can imagine I felt spoilt rotten and reminded, yet again, of how lucky I am.
Happy Anniversary G!!!
