One of my favourite things about other people's birthdays is getting to decorate cards and presents. I always like to make my own cards with paper and put loads of drawings and stickers all over presents.
Elliot's birthday was a little while ago and I gave him a few cheap DS games and some keyrings. Decorating the package was 100% the best part though. I get this great feeling from putting together a package like this. It's hard to describe, but it's like a special kind of satisfaction, like I have done something very important.
I had some Nickelodeon stickers to use up, but I'm not sure who all the characters are. I guess part of being an adult is not knowing what all the kid's shows are.
I also have these great triple chocolate cookies sitting my desk. They're those perfect big and soft ones. It also feels really good to have a packet of cookies like this. It makes me feel like a little kid who is well stocked for an adventure. I feel like I should have a colourful little backpack to put them in, or maybe a book bag.
Accidentally, I wore light grey on light grey. All light grey is a pretty good look though. It feels so calming and natural. I think the kid with the packet of cookies and the cutely decorated brown envelope birthday present would wear all grey. I mean, I know they would, because they're me, but y'know, it all seems to fit. There's a serendipity to this.
