An Amazing Gift

I came home to a lovely surprise yesterday.  Tracy from Mad About Bags had dropped a gift round to my house, so it was ready and waiting for me for when I got home from work.

Do you want to see what it is?  Silly questions, of course you do.

Here take a closer look

Isn't it lovely.  I absolutely love it.  There is just so much detail on it, even the date James proposed :)  This is something we will be able to keep forever.  My first handmade keepsake.  Thank you so much Tracy, like seriously I cannot thank you enough, it is amazing.

I have had a great day today, meeting up with a friend I used to work with at my old job.  We went to the cinema to see the new Muppets Movie, which was actually OK, I didn't think I would enjoy it, it's not really my kind of thing.  It was so nice to catch up and we will be doing so again next month, already I can't wait.

Tomorrow I am meeting up with some bloggers who I have not met before, we have an exciting afternoon planned in London so I will be back soon with news of how it all goes.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Lots of love
