My Middle Sister And Dad Are Awesome

All week long my middle sister has been telling me she and dad have something coming for me so I need to watch out for it. All week long I watched diligently.

This morning I stupidly went to the bathroom. FedEx came. And left.

I sat there stunned for a second and then decided I'm going to call them and whine. Oh lord can I whine. I whined, the lady said she couldn't promise me anything, I whined a little more, she went away and returned with good news. I told her she was my new favourite person.

Anyway, don't let anyone tell you otherwise... whining works. The guy rocked up to my house ten minutes later with a big box. I thanked him and offered him my firstborn. He wasn't as thrilled as I thought he'd be.

So pretty! I may have spent a full minute shaking it trying to guess what it was before I realised I could just open it and find out. Old age hit, and hit hard, people.

And then I opened the box and started crying because this is what lay inside...

Orla. Kiely. Grey. Mustard. Oh goodness.

Couldn't have chosen it better myself. Dad wants pictures because he doesn't know what the hell he got me lol

Now THAT's a bag worth whining for... Your family, especially your sisters, are excellent gift-picker-outers. My sister's great bu dad's only good at gifts for mum - but boy, he nails it every time.

Ok, so I made the cheese tortellini with sage and parmesan and it was totally the bomb! I was too impatient to look for the post to type this there though, so there.
