Dear Mr Birthday Present Fairy (aka The Man),
As you know, my birthday is coming up in a bit over a month. You say you often find it hard to choose a present for me, so I thought I'd start giving you some hints.
I think this mug is super cute. It has a tea strainer with it too, so it could fit nicely together in the cupboard and I wouldn't have to complain to you that you always put my tea strainer in places that I can't find it. I know I already have some gorgeous mugs, but I do drink lots of tea. And besides, those TimTam cups do need to go, rather than to always remind me that I can't eat them anymore now that I can't eat gluten.
I also think this pencil case is really sweet. I just love how Red Riding Hood is asking the wolf, "Why is your mouse so big?" It reminds me of my Japanese students who I miss so very much. And I do have lots of pencils that need somewhere nice to live.
When I find some more things that I like, I'll let you know shall I?
PS. I have been trying to be a very good girl this year, so I hope that counts.
PPS. Thank you to this lovely lady for the link to this store.
