You know it's going to be a good day when you're friends come over with belated birthday gifts and spoil you with things that make you say "how, how did you know i wanted one of these!?" or "i couldn't have asked for a more perfect present!". Well, i am absolutely smitten with this panda beanie my friend alex got me from her overseas trip. I'm aware that it may look strange and slightly attention seeking but it is so perfect for when the temperature suddenly decides to drop around here and i can't seem to take it off. Plus, this little guy comes with extra long sides with a pair of mitten attached, genius much? A little too perfect for when i have an extra large mug of hot english breakfast and i can safely wrap my mittens around it to keep me nice and toasty.
This is the beautiful gift laura gave me today. Don't worry, it took me a while to understand why she gave me a ball of red yarn too, it's actually a flight to melbourne! I've never had the time to make it to melbourne so i couldn't have asked for a more perfect present. I didn't know if i was crying at the sight of the cute little oragami plane she made or the fact that i get to spend a long weekend away with my best friend. I'm going on a major road trip down the coast on monday to find more country based op shops so we're planning to be in melbourne in two weeks time! Where to go, what to do, who to see! If you happen to see a small asian girl with half a panda on her head walking around chapel street, please don't worry, it's just me appreciating two wonderful gifts from friends i am so lucky to have :)
