Ah, it’s my birthday soon! Yippee. I always think I’m an easy person to buy a gift for (should I be so lucky), but these last few days there have been moans about not knowing what to get (an also a sneaky suspicion that one or two misguided individuals may be following the wrong present path). So to help, I’ve put together a top 10 wish list. Please don’t misunderstand, I don’t expect anything for my birthday, but at the same time I know there will be people who want to buy me something. So in order to prevent them spending ridiculous money on something I’m not at all interested in (although I’d fake it for their sake), here is my (somewhat) affordable wishlist.
1. KitchenAid Artisan Mixer (£439, I can’t decide on the colour but it has to have the clear pyrex mixing bowl with it). Ok, this is my one big gift. I am under no illusion that I am likely to get this, but a girl has to dream…
2. Scrabble Dictionary (£1.18) Mr. A. bought me an early birthday present of scrabble for the IPad. It’s amazing! But I don’t agree with its dictionary, so in order to settle arguments properly I think we could do with this
3. Bungee Cords for My Bike (£5.13) much needed. Black please!
4. Red Wellington Boots (£49) & Welly Socks. I have been dropping that fact that I want these so much in the last few months. Has to be in red too. Perfect for cheering up my rainy/snowy days to come
5. Sugar Thermometer (£4.06) I want to make marshmallows and so I need this. Am I mad?
6. A New Camera Bag (£26.09) OK, so this one is cheating since I’ve already bought this for myself in order to have in delivered in time for my birthday. I’m off to a few weddings this year and carrying around those traditional camera bags with formal wear looks terrible. This works much better or so I hope
7. Benefit Posie tint (£24.50) I’ve wanted this forever, but every time I think I should treat myself and see the price and the teenie tiny size of the bottle and I feel faint
8. Tashen Julius Shulman Book (£10.13) I have fallen in love with the late Julius Schulman and his photography. He was this amazing mid – late century guy who fell into photography and became friends with amazing architects working in America around that time. Basically all the iconic photographs of the case study houses and other ground breaking works in California and the surrounds are most likely Julius Schulman’s. Check him out
9. Pallette Knife for Icing (£4.95) I order to carry out task 6 of Project 2011
10. Basket for the Rear of My Bike (£9.05) Perfect for toting all my things about.
