Well next week is my birthday so my head is filling with a little wish list of things I need and things I just want. I think it's something to do with getting older but I no longer worry about people buying me presents, it's now more about treating myself to a special something extra. I think this shift happened around the same time as I started thinking of nice food or bath stuff as a really lovely gifts rather than just plain boring. So here's my current wish list.
Giant Suede City W bike, I really miss having a bike and this one would be great for cruising around Wellington bay. I walk everyday but really need to fit in a little more exercise and I would rather cycle than join a gym.
My iphone is on it's last legs, little cracks are appearing on the screen :( and I know I sound like a sad'o but I really have no idea what I'll do without it. It's maybe the greatest value per use item I have ever owned. So I think new iphone will bump bike from the number one spot.
Totally frivolous but I love this print from Lazy Oaf. Prog rock, bright colours and a unicorn what's not to like.I always want books and these three would be given a good home with me. An Education by Lynn Barber I heard her interviewed on Desert Island Discs this week and she was so interesting, I'm desperate to read this memoir. Eat Yourself Thin I really need a heathy eating cook book and this one seems a little more light hearted than most on offer. Finally for some reason I'm fascinated with Ted Hughes, I guess because he had an extraordinary and deeply tragic life and I really want to read The Letters of Ted Hughes to get a little more insight into him and his poems.
Finally my parents have kindly bought me this lovely chestnut brown leather bag. It's exactly what I need now I carry post - including poster tubes in and out of town everyday of the week. It's being made to order by Jenny n design on etsy.
