Early birthday gifts!

It will soon be my birthday AGAIN! The year so far has just flown by and it seems to go faster the older you get. There honestly isn't much I want or need but I have had two wonderful early presents this year, a long weekend away in the Cotswolds, in a  1600's house, heaven! I adore the Cotswolds and this time the stay is in Bourton on the Water. The house is one of the oldest in the village so I will be in my element especially sleeping in the antique four poster! The second arrived in a Fortnum & Mason box, I am always excited to get one of those as it's my favourite shop ever, the last bastion of Englishness! Inside a coveted bottle of White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum, the fragrance Kate wore on her wedding day when she married Prince William, a special edition bottle only at Fortnums. Well, I was thrilled as I have wanted to try it for ages, Gardenia is one of my favs, a gentle white flower boquet, lovely powdery dry down. Gorgeous!
