Birthday Gift Surprise ........

before I left for my holiday.
My holiday to Montreal
was a spur of the moment trip.
Booked one week before
as I have always been unsure
of flying, especially on my own.

My Daughter-in-law is always ready on time
for gifts and cards, so once she heard I was
going, she got my card etc off in the post.

I was going to take it with me and
OPEN on the DAY.
Claire phoned me and said " I think you
better open it,
as it might be handy!
That got me thinking!!

Claire and I had seen this on a day out at Millets Farm near me, quite a while ago. Millets Farm is one of those places with Flowers and Gifts and a Restaurant where everyone goes on a Sunday!!

I was truly surprised.. it is great and very girly ♥♥

  4. My husband studied in Canada and loved it there. He wants to take me there some time... but it's a little bit of managing with the little one right now. Hope you had a great time.
