My 21st Birthday
13th January 2015
I wrote a summary of my 21st birthday in last week’s Weekend Blog post (which you can read here) but today I thought I’d talk a bit about what I got for my birthday.
I know not everyone likes these posts but I only write two of these posts a year – for my birthday and Christmas. I’m not one of these people who does ‘haul’ posts because I rarely go shopping unless it’s for food. Plus the word ‘haul’ is associated with stealing, and I’ve just never understood why people refer to their posts as ‘hauls’. Maybe that’s just me.
My parents bought me a sewing machine for my 21st. I picked out this mini one from John Lewis as I wanted something quite basic as it’s been years since I last used one. They also gave me some of my favourite perfume: Armani Code.
Tyrone, who clearly knows me very well, bought me lots of little things including Plants Vs Zombies plushies, the original Casino Royal on Blu-ray, a film cell from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Trilogy scripts and some Ted Baker goodies.
Also, I should point out that the camera lens is not a real lens. It’s a thermos mug! How fun!
Most of my family sent me money which I am very grateful for as my parents and I are planning on going to New York for a few days at Easter to have a real celebration. It will be our first time in America so I’m so excited already. Just need to get it booked now.
