I am on the countdown now until my 42nd birthday, which is this Sunday. 42!?!? Not quite sure how that happened, but you know what? I’m at ease with it, I think being 42 is better than being 22 or even 32, to be honest – especially when I look back through the years, happy not to relive some of those! And of course, the benefit of birthdays, to cushion the blow of the whole ageing thing, is of course PRESENTS!!!!! Which got me to thinking… what I might put on my birthday wish-list, if I was being uncensored and greedy… well, you can but hope!
So, here are some things I would LOVE to be unwrapping on Sunday morning (although I’ll be in a tent in Dorset on Sunday morning, so we may have to postpone present unwrapping until we return home on the Monday):Hill and Friends Happy Slouchy Tote in Oxblood Silky Calf Leather with embroidered wink face, £395 – buy here.
