I want a donkey!

Don't you just love something so much more when it was a present?

The problem with presents is that either you don't get exactly what you wanted, or it's not really a surprise so it just feels like someone else paid for your purchase. The best type of present is when someone knows you want something then they go buy it for you... a complete surprise!

If you get this too often, the gift looses its value, and since no-one I know is particularly big on surprises I don't get them too often, but today after travelling an hour to pick up my little sister, I was greeted with this fabulous bag which I had been lusting after just the day before!

I must have looked rather odd the rest of the day, walking around with both my bags... but it couldn't be helped, I was too excited. It really reminds me of the bad boys who get turned into donkeys in Pinocchio. As soon as I got home, I looked up the label of the bag: Insight. I couldn't find my donkey on the website, but there were plenty of other clothes to look at. What surprised me, is that there was nothing I particularly want... the whole 'Insight' style is very much un-me.

A leetle bit too 'nu-rave' for me, which is probably a good thing, since I'm hoping for my next gift to be a pony...

ETA yes I do realise I have posted in the future... quite cool I think and not at all by accident


  1. Oh I love surprises also but sometimes get a bit nervous that I wont like the gift - its a catch 22. I will send you the link for the film strip once I track it down on my home PC. At work at the moment. Naughty Naughty. xf

  2. The bag has the cutest little donkey on! So cheerful and pretty, and I guess it will give you different looks easily! Can be a bit naughty and a bit quirky! Love it very much xx

  3. Thanks Francis and thanks times of glory!
