Well it generally goes a little something like this...
1. Sock (what birthday is complete without new socks)
2. Chocolates/sweeties (obviously!!)
3. Bath products (well I don't want you to smell)
4. A notebook (for all those important things you need to do/buy)
Over the years this has gone on to include certain things for certain people too...for instance I have to buy my friend Suzanne an umbrella...if I don't buy it then it will rain on her birthday...if I buy her a new one then it's sunny!! This law also dictates that Lady has to have something to do with chickens on her birthday (really, don't ask!!).
So when Christmas came around I looked at the list of laws and saw an opportunity...I can't knit socks...I can't make chocolates (I'd eat them all) I can't make bath products (I'd probably give everyone a rash)...BUT I can make personalised notebooks!...
I have to admit, I chose the image...I chose the paper...I added it all together along with her name and made it look pretty...BUT there was no way I was covering it myself (I'd be far too likely to mess it up)...so Mum did that bit for me haha!!
I was ever so proud of that little notebook that if I hadn't put her name on it I'd have been keeping it for myself!!
Thankfully though I had a lovely surprise on Christmas day when I opened this...
Mum obviously knew how much I'd loved it and made me my own!!
Love you Mum
