Possibly the most incredible gift ever received

IMG_4023I don't think of myself as a 'hen do' type of person. But I couldn't resist an extra opportunity to introduce my favourite people to each other. What I didn't realise was that a 'hen do' leaves you feeling more special, more loved and more spoilt than you could ever imagine. For me, this was centred on the gift of a quilt, wondrously conceived and compiled by one of my bridesmaids, Emma, and contributed to by 20 of the world's best people (namely, my friends and family). Trying to describe it only reduces it to something less than it is. I leave you to imagine the story behind each square, the self-deprecating phrases of the allegedly 'non creative' friends and the fond memories shared by others.

What more to say, but thank you ... thank you ... thank you ...
