I don’t really like to make a BIG fuss around the day, with one exception.
My nearest do not apply and the bigger the fuss the better 🙂
On Armitage Day I shared with you the cake my sister designed for me the previous year, which you can see here.
This year I asked that the calories count be kept low because I have a pair of Hobbit jeans I’s like to squeeze into soon.
I did love the cake from last year and just when I though that was the coolest birthday surprise ever, my family proved me wrong.
This year I got 5 postcards.
OK, it wasn’t only 5 postcards, but for dramatic effect let’s stick to the concept of:
For my birthday I got 5 postcards, one from each member of my immediate family.
And let me tell you, these are the best postcards ever.
Let me explain:
The first card was from my mom.
Well, hello there Captain Armitage.
I salute you!
I feel safer already knowing you’re in the cockpit…
The back of the postcard said, in rhyme:
Translation: My dear, We’re sending you on a long journey, and a flight above Amsterdam. Avoid temptation and don’t inhale any of that Amsterdam ‘mist’.
Prepare your passport and boarding pass, as Captain Richard will fly you out.
What I adore about this is that the street name is: On the Way to London St. and the postal code of the address is actually the one for the Warsaw Airport 🙂
The next postcard was from my dad.
That’s one hotel I wouldn’t mind checking into 🙂
Can I ask for extra towels?
On the flip side:
Translation: My dear, it would be nice, if walking around London was pleasant for you, so we booked a hotel close to the centre for you.
You’ll feel comfortable there like in biblical heaven.
Overlooking your comfort, and this is no joke, is the dedicated concierge Richard.
The next card is from my Sister Dearest.
Now, you can see why this card is close to my heart.
I’m on constant diets and and looking forward to eating Fish&chips almost as much as seeing The Hobbit!
On the back:
I will never let you down Magzy, nor will I let Cook Richard down, therefore Miss Piggy from Piggleton (love it!) promises to stuff her porker face at the local chippy just for you two 🙂
The next card is from my BFF and I just cracked up when I saw Monet as a Beefeater!
I think they may suspect I have a tad of a crush on Richard Armitage, because Max goes on to say:
I’m in the process of getting my name and address legally changed to the one featured on this postcard 🙂
I think it suits me very well!
This is the last card:
It would seem I’m going on and Unexpected Journey of my very own 🙂
Five wonderful postcards that make me suspicious that they may be on to me and have an inkling that I’m a bit partial to Richard Armitage.
I really do wonder what gave it away?
Anyway, it would seem that my dearest are sticking me on board a plane heading towards London via Amsterdam (no promises about the mist though, when in Rome…), I’ll be staying in a beautiful stylish boutique hotel in the centre and Ill get a chance to see The Hobbit 2 weeks before it opens in my country.
BEST. BIRTHDAY. PRESSIE. EVER!
