Congrats Wishing!!!

The best gift I'm giving is to my brother and his girlfriend, their getting a beach set with sarong, towels, floppy straw hats, a beach ball, a glow in the dark beach ball and a bucket and spade set. My brother especially will love it even though he's mid twenties lol his bday gift is pretty good too. He's getting a bottle of vodka but the bottle is a skull and a t-shirt that says shhhh this is my hangover t-shirt.

My dad and step-mum got me a new bedside table which Ive been wanting for ages. Tried to buy it a few months ago and they sold out pretty much while I was in store. I'm getting money for an iPad mini too, so its a pretty good Christmas this year.

DH got me a stunning Michael Kors watch after I showed him a photo of one I liked months ago, I can't wait to open it. It would have been a fantastic surprise, but he sent it to our friends in Texas to then forward on to us and I accidentally saw the FB messages they sent each other. Still awesome, though!
