It's Alan's birthday today, I won't tell you how old he is save to say that this is the last year his age will start with a five!!
In true saving money/ recycling/ wartime thinking I decided to forego buying wrapping paper and instead made my own out of four pages of his favourite magazine that I found in the recycling bin. The ribbon came off the throws we bought for our new sofa ... and once he's opened the parcel it will be recycled yet again.
The little paper bag is also made out of the pages of a local Welsh paper, it was this which gave me the idea for my wrapping, contains a little gift bought from a local shop in Llanrwst and contains one of his three presents which are all wrapped up in the one parcel.
He's got something he needed, something he loves and something as a symbol of my love for him.
You can't ask for much more than that for your birthday can you .... oh well maybe a cake with candles ...so I'm going to make that later.
Happy Birthday Alan
The birthday boy didn't want a cake, he requested scones.
No problem 😊
