Hi just ordered a book and card
Hi just ordered a book and card .
Book arrived within 3 days lovely quality and the personalisation is really special x
The book didn’t arrive with a card so contacted the company by email who replied rapidly saying being sent out in separate delivery. Sorry to say still waiting on card even though the have sent me a depatched email . So can blame the company.

Ordered the 'book about me' for my sister, it is absolutely beautiful, I loved reading the information inside and know she will enjoy reading it. Fast delivery, well worth the money I paid.
