|Possibly the best wrapping paper ever?!|
|I'm like a child who prefers the box to the present inside, but it's just SO beautiful!|
A few snaps from the 26th October when Rob turned 22, or in other words, the day he realised he is halfway to 44! I honestly don't know who was more excited about the presents, me or him, but it cannot be denied that that is some pretty awesome wrapping paper. His main present was a burgundy Ralph Lauren shirt (unfortunately a tad too big- skinny witch- so an extra small is to be ordered). But when it arrives I will show it to you in all it's glory. For now, let us admire the beautiful packaging shall we?
Rob wanted a new wardrobe for his birthday so we spent the day in Bluewater shopping centre. It was also my first time on the motorway and mid-drive the heavens opened and it was torrential downpour hell. There was so much spray coming off tyres it created a thick fog and it was unbelievably busy; I basically thought I might die on the M25. But we finally made it to Bluewater and had a good nose around the shops. I'm quite lucky that Rob likes shopping and is usually quite happy to browse the girl's sections too. Unfortunately, my bank card does not currently share this joy and so it was pure window shopping on my behalf.
It was a chance to discover though that there are some horrendous coats on sale at the moment (see above). Fit, no? Definitely no. When I lack money I seem to take pleasure from finding and trying on the most hideous items I can. The bin bag 3/4 length puffa jacket above, for example. I dragged Rob into this too and tada! The photographic evidence speaks for itself. I hope you're laughing as much as we were.
We ended the trip with a visit to the new Cadbury's Cocoa House with the most delicious hot chocolate and home made chocolate fudge cake. The savoury food ordered by the table behind us looked a dream as well so a re-visit for lunch is a must on our next visit. For now, I am looking forward to what I am sure will be a beautiful wedding tomorrow! Fingers and toes and all other crossable limbs crossed for decent October weather.
