I've been busying myself by sorting out the flat and taking photos of the pretty things that both my and Ed's lovely family bought for me. I know these sort of posts are loved and loathed in equal measure but I, for one, am always hugely nosy to see what other people received.
The satchel was my present from my parents and how happy I am to finally have it in my possession. It's just the right size, not too big, not too small, with a discrete company stamp on the back and very very shiny. I'll be writing extra special thank you notes to everyone this year.
What is everyone up to for New Years this evening? I'm going to my friends flat in East London for a dinner party and a night of cocktails and boardgames. I just can't handle the crowds and expense a New Years night out generally entails but if you're braving the outside world tonight, good luck to you.
From tomorrow morning a new look Pretty Much Penniless will be on show for all to see. New year, new beginnings and all that so I'll be doing a little rundown of 2011 to celebrate what, after all, was a good old year.
I hope everyone has a fantastic night and that heads aren't too sore tomorrow! I'm already dreading mine after a dozen Mojito's.
