My Birthday Presents 2014


As most of you probably already know it was my Birthday on Sunday. I didn't have loads of presents as I asked for Primark vouchers, and very luckily received quite a few along with some other gorgeous gifts.


My main present from Spencer was the nights stay in Chester that we added onto our holiday. He did generously get me other presents too including this beautiful Clogau charm that will live on my Clogau necklace*, I'll show you the two of them together in more detail in another post.

 
Spencer also got me a Macro lens extension for my camera, to be honest neither of us really know what to do with this! He bought it thinking it was a macro lens so now we are both a little stumped and can't figure out how to work it, more research needed! I received this amazing smelling candle from Spencer's parents.


My parents bought me both of these fridge magnets and I love them, the cats and chocolate one is so apt! Spencer's parents got me the cute cat brooch, crazy cat lady theme right here! 


My sister and her partner bought me this gorgeous bag from Peacocks, it is a nice size and will be great for short trips away and days out.


I also received the Primark vouchers and lots of Birthday cards, so lucky!

  3. Wow, you got some lovely things! I'm very jealous :P
    With the macro extensions, they split into three and you screw one of those three sections onto your camera, and screw the lens onto that - I've got one but I haven't used it for years! You lose the autofocus on your camera, but by using manual focus you can get incredibly close up. Here's a pic that I took of the palm of my hand when I got mine to demonstrate! http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l1ibtonWU41qbh666o1_500.jpg xx
