I have been keeping it a secret...but can't help but externalise what has to be the best birthday present ever. Gifted from a like-minded after-hours sifter ("to be worn only in the home" were the instructions), I was gifted a matching navy blue Juicy Couture tracksuit....complete with monogram, double hood, XL and only just fits (Hong Kong sizing). It is like my very own soft toy suit - grips the physique - making me look very J-Lo or Madonna in the 90s. I can't tell you how good couch times are with this new addition.

A fine day coupled with a beautiful feast for two...
Falling Waters to start - with Pacific Oysters...
Salmon Capparccio with herbs and tomato,
Some pea podding in preparation for the main course...
And sauteed courgettes from our garden..
to create a compliment a fresh, good square main meal for Christmas, all centered around a leg of lamb, (with new potatoes and mint sauce of course).

Look what I got for my birthday. Its a Brabantia ironing board to assist in my ongoing obessession of ironing. I no longer need to wrestle with a midget, wonky and wobbly board. I now 'surf' over shirts, press corners like you wouldn't believe and generally feel like I am playing 'god' as I stand behind my new Dutch ironing deck! Its even neutral in colour. Thanks Al! xx
