My dears, I just wanted to share a sweet little idea with you. Since I spent my birthday away from home this year, my mother sent me a little package in the post so that I'd have some little presents to open.
Since we've just moved house (back in England), she has been very busy heaving furniture about. At the very back of our desk, she found a forgotten stash of wrapping paper. The wrapping paper hadn't been touched for many years and as a result turned out to be the paper used for wrapping many childhood gifts! She wrapped up each of the gifts in a different scrap of paper, so that I had several little mementos of childhood birthdays as I pulled each gift out of the parcel.
Isn't that the sweetest idea? I'm definitely going to save some wrapping paper scraps over the years - it was such fun to have a variety. It would be nice for those special birthdays, for ages 18 or 21, or even older!
