Friends and family must all have been telepathic this year. Just 2 weeks after I was introduced to the incredibly smartly-designed flavour shaker device at my friend's curry night, my sisters bought me one for my birthday. Yay. Now I can avoid buying a food processer and shake away like Jamie Oliver.
Friends at work, meanwhile, got me an amazing assortment of loose tea leaves just days after I was thinking I should go out and get some loose leaf tea (inspired when I finally cleaned out the pantry). Double yay.
