Perfect presents

The end of June beginning of July is a busy one for me, Mum's Birthday is on the 29th June, mine is on the 1st July, 32!!!! I still feel like I'm 18 most days ;0), its me and Lex's anniversary (3 years! Gosh its gone fast) Also my Aunts Birthday on the 5th, so over the last week there's been some celebrating in the Andrews/Ledger households!

Mum's Birthday didn't go quite to plan because we had a very poorly Binky that day, he been bitten by another cat and it had gone septic, it was all rather dramatic, he when missing and when we found him in a neighbours back garden we had to rush him to the vets! He's on the mend now but it did rather spoil the Birthday dinner we had planned, so we will have a re-run Birthday for her later in the month!

Binky Bow-Bows, much better now :0)

My Birthday however was perfect, I received so many amazing presents, everyone had put so much thought into my gifts, I am a very lucky girl! Me and Lex escaped to my favourite part of the county, Dorset for the weekend so it was double perfect, I'll share some photos of the weekend tomorrow, meanwhile here's a few pictures of me opening some of my presents.....

This was taken at my Aunts house, we dropped by her house in the New Forest on our way to Dorset

This is my Tiffany silver pen, kindly given to me by Lex's lovely Mum Sooz

Me opening a VERY special gift from Lex, what could it be....

and here it is, can you guess what it is yet?

Did you guess right! Lex had conspired with my favourite artist (and very good friend) ginger Brame to make the most wonderful Harry Potter themed Bear in a box! I was beyond thrilled, it was such a surprise. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

A happy girl with the BEST present!
For more details on the box please visit ginger's blog here and here, she explains things so much better than me.


  1. This time of year you don't need an excuse to have a party - you already have plenty to celebrate! Happy Birthday from one 18-year-old to another! ;) And a Happy Anniversary to you both! (Hi Lex!) Happy Birthday to your Aunt and your dear mum too. Sorry to hear about Binky Bow-Bows but glad he's getting better. How'd he get that name? I'm looking forward to seeing your Dorset photos. If I never get there, at least photos will be a good second! You're so sweet! I'm glad that you liked the gift that Lex arranged for you. Enjoy! And a Happy Happy Birthday!

  2. Thanks ginger :0)
    Binky's name came from the books by Terry Pratchett - The Discworld series! Binky is the name of Deaths horse! The bow-bows part has just been added because he's such a cutie! He also gets called Binky Bo-Bops and our ginger tom gets called Tigger Ro-Poo! Yes we are bonkers :0) xx

  3. Oh, so YOU are the lucky recipient of Ginger's amazing box! How WONDERFUL!! It couldn't have gone to a nicer person!! Enjoy, dear Elanor and a happy birthday to you!!!


  4. Yay it was me! Thanks so much Cheryl :0) xx

  5. I wondered who the amazing book box was for and now I know. Happy belated birthday.
