    Love it! I’m not sure whether it would be better to have the gin twice or gin and a spa day but your label maker looks fabulous! And everyone looks very very happy despite, or perhaps because the cat remains uneaten!

    Haha love the bit about what the baby wanted! Sounds just like J. All he wanted to do was eat the wrapping paper, he chucked the presents that people bought him out the way in favour of a bead garland and even now when all the toys are out we find him sat making noises at the hoover. He’s obsessed!! x

    Great post, relating to your baby’s disappointment on the real keys. My little one was gutted at the feeble plastic set we tried to fob her off with in an attempt to distract her from the real thing.
