Update 13/11/20 with birthday gifts

As I wrote in Monday’s post, I had a lovely birthday last Sunday. I really enjoyed the day and was fortunate to receive some gorgeous birthday presents. You can see them in the collage below…

Birthday presents 2020

Top row, L to R: teapot with cup plus a lovely selection of Whittard teas from Elder Son, pretty feather earrings from Younger Son.

Bottom row, L to R: silky velour Seasalt scarf in rich colours from my sister, Hermès Plumes en Fête shawl from Lovely Husband, and a John Lewis cobalt cashmere jumper from my brother and myself!

And, yes, the Hermès shawl will be a Christmas present as well!

I couldn’t resist getting another v-neck cashmere jumper to add to my collection. In addition to this cobalt one, I also have them in navy (John Lewis) and in grey and lilac (both Marks and Spencer). There is also a rather moth-eaten one at the back of my wardrobe in turquoise from JL. I tend to buy them slightly large as I like to wear them in a kind of slouchy style with jeans, jewellery and a silk scarf. In fact, I wore the new cobalt one today with a Bill Skinner lapis lazuli pendant and pyjama trousers!

I feel very fortunate to have received such lovely gifts, plus the kind messages and cards from family and friends. Thank you all 🥰.

Love and best wishes for the weekend,

    Happy belated birthday! Your gifts are lovely, and you look radiant 🙂
    I love Whittard tea and stocked up on it in anticipation of another lockdown and potential shortages….
    Enjoy your beauties in good health.

    with kindest regards,
