I must have been a “good-girl” this year, because I got what I wanted this Christmas.
We went to Hay-on-Wye last October, during little T’s short break from school and saw Sylvia Plath’s (one of my favourite poets) book of drawings. I knew she drew a lot, but I didn’t know that they published a book of her art works, so imagine my delight when I saw the hard-bound book in one of the many bookshops in Hay. I held the book in my hand for the longest time and stood there, deciding whether to buy it or not. You see, it was a bit pricey.
In the end, with a heavy sigh, I reluctantly let go of it, especially since I just bought a Folio book-bag, which wasn’t exactly cheap either, especially for a book bag. Had I seen the book first, I would’ve chosen it over the bag as my husband would say “Yet another bag” complete with eye-rolling.
But I have it now! See, if it’s meant to be, you will have it!
I was really surprised when my husband got it for me this Christmas (among other things), but this is no doubt, one of my faves!
Just look at how intricate that drawing is!
Not only that, my daughter also gave me this:
It’s a children’s book written by no other than, Sylvia Plath too! Little T actually asked me to read it to her. I read her the first story, but I think she’s a little bit too young for it. And look, she also signed it.
Well, obviously not Sylvia Plath (she’s been dead more than 50 years), but little T 🙂
These are two of my most-favourite Christmas presents I got this year, what about you?
