My Birthday Wishlist…

Every year for my birthday Andy asks me what I would like for my present, this used to bother me, as I thought he should know me well enough to know what I would like. But, I have come to realise over the years that it’s not about him not knowing me well enough, he knows me better than I know myself. It’s just that he worries about getting me something that I don’t like. Plus he knows that since having the girls I don’t treat myself like I used to and there is probably a lot of things I dream over buying.

It’s my birthday in a couple of weeks, in fact it has fallen on Fathers’ Day this year, which I have cancelled this year in our house!  So, I was looking for things to put on my list of what I would like. I normally give him a few suggestions so I can have a bit of a surprise and I thought I would share it with you.

My Birthday Wishlist…



  1. Always with Love by Giovanna Fletcher – I have read all of Gi’s books and they are brilliantly written. I can’t wait to read her new one that came out last week.
  2. Stella Bucke Shopper from Oasis – I am going to hold my hands up and admit I have a handbag addiction. I love this one and I thought it would be perfect to take to the BritMums Live conference which is the week after my birthday.
  3. Chelsea Frill Top from Oasis – I spotted this top when I was looking for a new bag. I normally play it safe with colours that I wear and I don’t actually think I own anything red. But, this really caught my eye and I love the design.
  4. Wild Blossom A5 Fabric Bound Notebook – Ok, so I may have another addiction…stationery! I just love a notebook for all the lists that I love to make. It has got worse since I started blogging because I have one for lists and one for ideas, not to mention the one for everyday lists and holiday lists. I adore this Wild Blossom notebook, inside is a faded version of the pattern.
  5. Olivia Burton Big Dial Leather Strap Watch – How lovely is this watch. I am not expecting to receive this, but a girl can dream…

Now all I need to work out is how to get Alice to see this, so when daddy takes her shopping she know’s what mummy wants! Oh and mum if your reading this, any of these would be fab, thank you…

Do you make a list for your birthday?

    Oh I really love that top, it’s so pretty. I am also a bit of a self confessed stationery addict! I hope you have a fabulous birthday.

    I think that red top would look great on you! It’s my 30th next year, and whenever I mention something expensive that I would like in passing, Carl just says, well you’ve got a big birthday next year…, so next September I’m expecting a MacBook, a canon g7x, a new lens for my dslr…. Hahahaha yeah right!

    That watch is stunning, I’ve recently bought a similar (much cheaper) version from New Look. Hope you have a fab birthday

    Love your wish list. Like you I also have a “mild” addiction to bags and stationary. The bag addiction, I think I’m sort of managing really well and not giving in too much, but the stationary? I have loads of un-opened still in plastic lovely notebooks. Hi, my name is Dean and I’m a journal addict 😉 x

    Oh a lovely wishlist. I love the watch in particular 🙂 #bloggerclubuk

    Love the bag, I always seem to have my birthday when we are abroad so I don’t really get much other than a couple of CDs or something easy to carry. This year I have no idea what I’d like, maybe some perfume?

    Gorgeous, all of them. I really like the watch though. Hope you get something from the list! Happy birthday. xx #BloggerClubUK

    Love that you have cancelled Father’s Day in your house! I love these, especially the notebook – I’ve always been obsessed with stationery too x

    This is a great wish list. I’ve heard a lot about G’s books but haven’t read any yet, going to add those to my birthday wish list I think, I also love the bag and stationary, I’m like you, they are my secret pleasures too. #BloggersClubUk

    Oh my gosh that top is stunning! I feel a little trip to Oasis is in store. I’ve never read one of G’s books but one of my friend adores her and has been recommending them to me so maybe I should stick up on my kindle.

    The Olivia Burton watch is so gorgeous. I love the strap and the rose gold clock face is perfect.

    Fantastic birthday wish. I would love to get a hold of Olivia Burton watches it looks stunning.

    Great list. I’ve got that exact watch but the one I have, you can swap the strap for pink too. Also really want that book x

    Ooh my birthday is two days after yours so I know what it’s like to have to share the limelight – pah! 🙂 Lovely choices, especially the watch. You’ll have to ask hubby if he’s read your latest post – hint, hint… #picknmix
