Project 365: #138 Happy Birthday Danny/New Year's Eve

I'm quite rubbish at wrapping presents.  I can just about cope with boxes, but anything that's a slightly odd shape gets wrapped in vast amounts of paper and Sellotape in an attempt to cover my lack of skills.  Danny's abnormally good at wrapping so I felt extra pressure to wrap his presents well and spent quite some time doing so - I think I managed!  The present on top is a belt - you wouldn't have guessed though, right?

You might've guessed from the title of this post that Danny's birthday also happens to be New Year's Eve (yes, this post is very late!)  We went to Frankie & Benny's for a late lunch with his parents, brother and brother's fiancée then headed home to get started on preparing things for the house party in the evening.  Despite the fact that his sister and brother had invited most people, we managed to get the short straw and spent a good two hours cooking up any number of party food treats - I do love mini sausage rolls and cocktail sausages though!  Yummy! :)


  1. That looks like good wrapping to me, I hate all the fiddly corners too so I cover it in extreme amounts of sticky tape, possibly too much so you can't get into it without using the scissors ... oops!

  2. The wrapping looks good. I love the paper that you used.

  3. Thanks guys :)

    Rachael - that's exactly what I do! So much so that my brother now says "ohhhh, you're from the Kat school of wrapping" if he sees anyone else do it!

    Leanne - the paper is from WHSmith :)
