May is my favourite month, mainly because of the garden. Everything starts to pop out of the ground, ready to bloom in a few weeks. I tend to spend hours pottering around, sitting on my step and drinking a cup of tea. Then we get the odd warm night and I like to soak in the world, maybe read a book on the grass...it just makes me happy.
So when I've had a long day at work and I want to get comfy, that's where I head. I grab my blanket and comfy socks and just chill out. Do you do that? Maybe I am old before my time, I just love being outside ya know?
This week is my Birthday week, so I took the opportunity to pull out some pretty special socks...cashmere ones in fact. Sent to me by Pure Collection, I never thought I could get so attached...I mean they are socks after all. I guess it helps that they didn't just send me socks, I received a whole parcel full of treats. Champagne truffles, P.S I love You on dvd, a lovely scented candle and Molton Brown bubble bath. Talk about indulgent. So I took the comfiest socks in the world and my truffles and I went and sat on the grass, soaking in that I am now 27. You know what I realised? Yes I appreciate a decent pair of socks now and I would rather eat champagne truffles than actually drink any & you know what....I'm ok with that.
I'm off to soak my feet in my Molton Brown tub.
Seriously guys.....so soft!
