There are two types of people in the world – those with great
rapping wrapping skills and those without.
I’m firmly in the latter group (on both accounts).
While everyone else in my family wraps presents up beautifully with specially chosen wrapping paper, symmetrical folds and carefully coordinated ribbon and bows that belong on Pinterest, you’ll be able to instantly identify a present from me thanks to its mismatched paper (I’ll make use of whatever is left, scraps and all), odd shape, rough edges and visible sticky tape marks.

And that gift bow or three? You can bet I've put them on there to hide a terrible mistake I couldn't be bothered to redo.
