my birthday

Check out this extremely fabulous copy of the 1920s classic Milly Molly Mandy - a birthday present from my mum who shares my love of vintage children's books:

I love this cute "waterspouts and chimney tops" perpetual calendar my boyfriend gave me - the illustration is by artist Lisa DeJohn. These friendly whales are going to brighten up my desk no end.

The tiniest pair of ruby slippers you've ever seen: a fairy-sized gift from my very own fairy godmother:

A birthday walk and a glimpse of the first snowdrops... followed by some genuine birthday snow! What more could I ask for...

The essay is finally in and Virginia has been forgiven.

This birthday will also go down in history as the Year of Three Birthday Cakes. I now consider my cake-related new year's resolution to have been officially achieved.
