I dont know if anyone remembers this, but just before Christmas I posted that I had to turn down a desperately wanted gold birkin. I was really concerned becuase my lovely SA was leaving and I seemed to have slid off the store's radar. Well......My "nobody loves me" mood continued over Christmas, when my only pressie from DH was a necklace I had bought myself, and into New Year, which is a bad time for me. Then my youngest got chicken pox and I was up 4-5 times a night as she was so poorly. We went on holiday on Jan 5 and my birthday is on Jan 7. I didnt want to take my presents on holiday, but I did take all my birthday cards. On the morning of my birthday I had a glass of champagne in bed and opened my card whilst my girls sang "Happy birthday dear mummy" very cutely! A couple of days in the sun had cheered me up no end and I opened the card from my husband to find a picture of a Birkin in, and he had written "all I can do for now" on it. I thought it was his idea of a joke and to be honest I didnt think it was very funny! But he then said, with a smile, after I had called him and told him I had turned down the gold birkin he had realised how important it was to me, how hard life had been lately and hotfooted over to the store and bought it!
