Some Birthday 'arrivals'

Post by Monkey »

I started off the daywith a splash of orange, with one of my favourite vintage watches, and my new birthday pressie from Mrs M, some custom made Nike ID tennis shoes, which arrived yesterday :D

You can add any name, so I thought it rude not too!! 8)

But then.....the doorbell rang, and the postman gave me this. Suprised he knew where to deliver it as someone had blotted out the name and address :wink:

Have you worked it out yet?? Anyway this is what came.......

I always liked the look of this watch, and when the NN went up, I managed to grab one :D

Putting it on, I like the look and feel of the watch, but, I find the shoulders on original fitted strap just stick out too much on my twiggy wrists, so I changed it for another nice strap I'd got on another diver, and it's much better now :D

On a side note, I took these piccies with my new HTC Sensation XE phone with an 8meg camera......don't think they've come out bad?!!

Thanks for looking :)

Some great pressies there Monkey, particularly the colour coordinated tennis shoes! Well done on the C60 Trident too. I bet that little beauty got some major wrist time!

Happy birthday. New funky shoes and a new watch. Can't be bad. I really like Trident and I've been using it as my everyday watch since I bought it. Hope you enjoy wearing yours.

A couple of very nice prezzies there John.
You going to dazzle the competition in those new tennis shoes? :lol:
Love the new Trident too,been eyeing a GMT version for a while but keep getting sidetracked with other brands so funds are low.
