It was my 39th birthday on Friday 13th.
I had a lovely day talking to family and friends on the phone, as I live about 7 hours drive away from most of them. I also received some lovely thoughtful gifts, but I thought I’d share with you the wonderful bookish gifts I got.
Here is the stack of paperbacks my hubby got me. The beautiful flowers in the background were sent to me by my grandma.
So many great choices. I can’t decide what to read first. Having only just seen the film of Me Before You, I may wait a while before I read that book, but having loved the film so much, I really wanted the book, so I can read it at some point.
These scrumptious book shaped chocolates and beautiful book necklace are from my best friend, who clearly understands how much I love books. Last year she bought me a beautiful paperback copy of Little Women, which I keep on display on my desk in my reading room.
I consider myself a very lucky birthday girl this year, even if I didn’t win on the EuroMillions 😉 xxx
