Pretty in Pink Birthday Card

I feel I should confess to succumbing to temptation and buying a onesie – the adult version of babygro. Well, it was on offer, plus it looked soooo comfy. It is a bit of a guilty pleasure, as I’m far too old for such nonsense but it’s definitely cosy! I didn’t count on the hazards…
