I’m NOT a fan of surprises, they make me feel a bit anxious.
A surprise birthday party would be my nightmare. And I’m not saying that in a I-totally-DON’T-hate-surprises-and-I-would-LOVE-a-surprise-birthday-party-with-cake-and-balloons kind of way. I genuinely don’t like surprises. I always know what my Yule/Christmas and birthday gifts are ahead of time. I catered my own wedding to ensure that there were going to be no surprises.
I enjoy creating surprises for others. I get why other people like them. I get why my kids like them. But they’re just not for me.
That was until today.
Today, I had a wonderful thing happen.
I got a mysterious card in the post, along with a voucher for free cake at a local cupcakery!
I have no idea who sent it, because the card simply says;
“Dearest Emi, Enjoy! With love xxx”
It’s all very mysterious and rather lovely. And I don’t feel anxious about it. More… curious.
VERY curious actually.
I’m also inspired!
This little act of loveliness deserves to be passed on. Paid forwards.
So here’s what I’m going to do.
Leave me a comment, telling me about a Little you know who is extra especially special.
A child who just brings light and sparkle to others.
One who brings you joy.
This can be your own child, or someone else’s child.
I will then choose at random, one little light to receive one of my handmade MamaPixie animal masks in the post!
Share the love, and all that jazz.
The winner chosen by the random number generator was number 7, Niccy J and her daughter, Zephy!
And the fine print!
1. Entry is through commenting on this blog post only.
2. You can eneter as many times as you like, but only one nomination per comment please.
3. The winner will be drawn at random using a random number generator on Monday 19th January. The winner will be announced on this post, on the MamaPixie Facebook page, and contacted by email.
