Lord help the Mister...

It's my big sister's 30th birthday today!! Happy birthday Becky! (I know, her party was like two weeks ago. We celebrate a month of birthdays in our family... well, my sister and I do, anyway. Please prepare yourself for July, because that is MY birthday month.)

I got her lots of lovely presents - a subscription to BBC Good Food magazine, some pretty photoframes with old pictures of us in, a Mr Frosty machine (which she said was her favourite present - we've both wanted one forever!) and even a birthday 'stocking' full of silly little bits from Hawkin's Bazaar like jumping beans and a magic tree! Remember magic trees?

I also got her the coolest card ever (stickers!!)...

...although my niece one-upped me as hers was just adorable and so sweet. That's a list of the things she wants to do to celebrate her mum's birthday. Let's just take a moment to AW.

(I know, her spelling isn't great, but she's only six...)

There's only a few weeks left until the three of us move in together, and I can't wait. I know it sounds corny but my sister is my best friend, no one knows me like she does, and we can't wait to make our house beautiful and spend our evenings making awesome dinners and drinking loads of wine.

I framed this one. Because the face of a little girl who has just been caught stuffing a massive lolly into her baby sister's face is too priceless not to share.

Love ya, Becksamina Boogle!


  1. Sweet pictures!:D And the gift wrapping, so girly and cute!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. Awwww! You two were such sweet little girls, absolutely adorable.

    Off topic butI can't take my eyes of that teak sideboard in the background, that would fit a treat in my house.
    Happy birthday, Sarah's big sis!!!
