This year Ian bought Jo, one of my sister-in-law’s birthday present. It was a chain bottle holder. Don’t ask. Not pretty.
Jo was very gracious about receiving it though! They said it’s a ‘talking point’. Indeed it is. I don’t think in a ‘wow look at that it’s fabulous’ way, but never the less he tried and thought about his sister, which is nice.
Still, I thought I’d try to ‘pretty the present up’ a bit and wrapped it as nicely as I could with the few things I had lying about at home.
Amazing what a bit of tissue paper, a dolly, ribbon and a button can do to a box of chain…
