you are a precious presence.



Sometimes, I feel so so so lucky to have such big-hearted people in my life. I often get a bit down and disappointed in humanity, but times like the weekend just gone, I realise there are some absolute gems in the world. It's sad that it sometimes seems so rare to meet people who are thoughtful, and genuinely care about others. I can't believe that I've had the good fortune to have such lovelies in my life. It's not just the lovely, funny and thoughtful presents, but the nice words in their cards, the hugs and just having them around me.

Dearie me, I'm gushing a lot. To sum up - I love my family and friends SO much, and here are some of the lovely things they gave to me for my birthday!















(top-bottom: bathroom goodies from my auntie Jacky + her family; funny card and tooth necklace from Kristian; kitchen stuff from my brother Jamie and sister-in-law Lucy; paper aquarium and cat card from Elliott; Jersey Shore books and incense from Kayley; ninjabread men cutters from Chloé, Alf's cup & saucer, owl and diamond card from Oli; amazing package full of goodies from Ella; flowers from Sophy and family friends, Paul and Sue; money from aunts and uncles; big Cath Kidston mug from my Granny; M&S underwear and awesome card from my mum (she also got me a Bestival ticket!!); lots of lovely birthday cards!)

  13. I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes I think my general disapointment in humanity is actually a blessing, because when I receive that nice comment in a card, or receive a cheer me up card in the post, it means all the more! I totally appreciate those thoughtful things!
