So it was my birthday on Wednesday and I had the most wonderful day. I had amazing presents from The Boyfriend:
Lovely homeware gifts from two of my favourite interiors shops, including this lovely blanket for autumn snuggling hibernation and this enamel milk pan for autumn hot chocolate. I love the colours and I would probably not have picked them myself so they were a real treat.
That book by Caitlin Moran that I haven't got around to reading yet.
I also got some lovely flowering plants from my parents. An orchid which adds a vibrant shot of pink against the grey walls in our living room and which replaces the many orchids I have managed to kill over the years. Some pretty (as yet unidentified flowers) and a hyacyth which will smell sensational when the flowers start to open up.
My favourite present however is probably Esther, the adorable little donkey which The Boyfriend adopted on my behalf. A private joke between us. I love her and I think we should go to and see her in Norfolk.
