A nurse was congratulating me for my crutch use by saying “well done. Gold star” so I went:
"Do I actually get a gold star? Because I respond really well to sticker charts"
I have about a week of no work and I don’t want to spend my whole time watching Scrubs and Criminal Minds so I’ve made a plan to clean and sort the house and do some cross stitch and maybe some stencilling and generally be a bit creative. It’s quite exciting, I haven’t had this much unplanned, unrestricted time off since…well since between Lush and Whittard, I guess.

Primrose: Favourite kind of soup!
Broccoli and stilton. Preferably with stilton on toast on the side. Yummy!
Tulip: For your birthday, what kind of cake do you ask for?
I never ask for a birthday cake, which is probably a mistake because this year I didn’t get one. I like a classic chocolate cake but mostly I just get what Mike can pick up from the supermarket at the last minute! One year it was a chocolate victoria sponge from the corner shop that he poked a Twirl into to make it more interesting…
And I had a think about more thoughtful presents and I can’t believe I forgot all of the lovely gifts that I got when The Girls came to stay for my birthday! I got a handmade apron, and a crocheted whale, and a whole bunch of other awesome stuff! There’s a picture on here somewhere of them I think.

So for Christmas we do a “secret santa stocking” which consists of 5 categories to be bought for a total of £20. One of these is “Something for the bathroom” generally bubbles, smellies etc. One Christmas Mike bought me a single bottle of Orangina as my “something for the bathroom” because he knows I like to drink it in the bath and he wrapped it and everything. It was very sweet.
Either that, or my oldest friend Beckie made a picture book of loads of childhood pictures of us for my 18th.
Or the time when Mike remembered I love unwrapping stuff, so he wrapped individual pieces of fudge and marshmallow so that I had LOADS of things to unwrap.
There’s loads of lovely thoughtful gifts! I am very lucky. :)
