a relaxed morning came to an abrupt end when we had to rush a little bit to pack for the wedding weekend, we gathered up our fancy dress costumes and other essentials. But just before we left i got to open (well they weren’t wrapped because of a shortage of wrapping paper, so let’s say receive instead). It’s safe to say the other half knows me very well, he got me;

the cutest pairs of socks from ASOS, i like a green smoothie so these are perfect alongside my panda ones, they’re very ‘me’. he also bought me this cute lunchbox to take with me to my new office based role as creative assistant and need to fuel myself with ‘brain food’.

i love this whole brand, they have a really great range of accessories and home stuff.
we headed of back to my hometown early afternoon and arrive in good time, but what i didn’t know was that i wasn’t headed straight home (mums house), Matt insisted i blindfolded myself with my scarf and he drove me to a good friends house, this was only revealed after i was guided in, sat down on the sofa and was placed my friends new born in my arms when the scarf was whipped off and i got baby cuddles! i spent a good hour catching up with my oldest friend, sipping tea and getting to hold a sleepy baby.
in the excitement of the whole day i’m gutted i didn’t take any more photos but i guess that shows how much i was enjoying myself. the food was amazing, we washed it down with a fair amount of drinks and stumbled home at about 2am which is a rarity these days. i didn’t really get to lie in the next day, i had a few more presents to open and then it was all about wedding prep for my brother’s two day festival wedding! don’t think i’ll be writing a post on that as it could take me quite some time! so here’s the rest of the presents i received;
the cute tin contained some flower shaped shortbread biscuits from M&S which were gorgeous! and i’m still yet to open the little Ted Baker parcel but i love the shade of varnish.
and a couple of bits i treated myself to with some birthday money which i absolutely adore! they smell so gorgeous and feel so luxurious.
