Today is a special day in our house. The iced and candled birthday cake is under the cake dome waiting on the table. Special occasions bring magic to life, it’s great for someone to have a day for themselves.
Looking at the way I had wrapped a present recently, a friend said, you put a lot of thought into your presents don’t you. Yes, it brings a little corner of joy to life. For me, it’s about being authentic, speaking from my heart.
A friend arrived with a present, it was lumpy and bumpy, the paper baggy. He told me how cross he was when he lost the end of the sellotape and then inadvertently stabbed himself three times with the scissor blade trying to find it. The wrapping wasn’t beautiful but it was authentic.
