Ah man, pictures really don't do this momentous surprise any justice.  There I was, minding my own business when a knock on my door ended up being the best surprise ever.  I don't know how they know me but the people at Tanqueray Gin South Africa, put together a seriously thoughtful Valentines Day gift pack for me and I am really grateful. I have to share it because, I mean really:

First of all, that bottle green is one of my favourite colours the box is wooden and I have already found a use for it. 

They made a little booklet that was printed with various blog post images and quotes that they used to figure out the the things that I like.  So for instance:

BOOM! Gift vouchers to The Space, a Kerry Washington movie DVD and not one but two Erykah Badu CD's (you can't see the other one here :-) which are in my car.

This is my absolute favourite thing - it's a giant poster that I'm taking to the framers TODAY! 

Quotes by the old man, what better way to ground ones self?

So not only these, they got me a super cute clutch bag, a burned orange Le Creuset tea set which I have already used 3 times and forced guests to drink tea from, a Le Creuset butter cup, heart shaped lollies from Woolies and of course a delicious bottle of what was already my favourite gin in the world, we are getting Tanked this weekend. Thank you so much for this you guys, I get a lot of these kinds of things all the time and this one certainly tops the ''best of'' list. 

I'm sorry for the bad quality pictures. I took these with my iPhone, which is obviously over life or something.
