It’s my Birthday coming up next month, and I absolutely love Birthday’s.
I’m the kinda gal who talks about it for the whole month prior, and would cry it from the rooftops to let the world know about it if I could.
It’s not at all a way to score gifts as no one in my friend & family group do presents, (cake is completely accepted though) It’s just that I’m so darned excited to have a special day that’s all mine! A day of being treated, spoilt, of cards in the post, of cute text messages, of dinner with friends, of not working, of me me me! (How much better is that than gifts?)
Now you’d think that surely my partner Gareth would get me something?
Nope. No gifts. We treat each other to delicious food, and a day out on Birthdays/Christmasses etc, we don’t do gifts.
See we buy each other presents all year around. We both love vintage, and if we’re out sourcing and see something the other would like, we buy it for each other.
It’d be so stressful to every year have to go out and find something to beat all the other awesome gifts throughout the year. So we just decided to do no presents.
So this is another one of my all year ’round early Birthday presents from Gareth (hehe)
As you probably know, Gareth is what I’d call an expert in vintage records, turntables & all things audio. It was his business for years prior to me meeting him. He’s all about quality audio gear, and this, well… is not that.
He can’t understand why I want to hear such good music, that should be played through something amazing instead of something that makes it sound so bad.
Honestly I can’t really tell the difference.
He wants to get me a system with quality sound, but I just know it won’t look as fab as this (or as small as this) and if this does the job AND looks so amazing, I’d take this any day!
