Well my birthday came and went while I was in New Zealand and as such I didn't receive any birthday presents...this didn't worry me too much as I was lucky enough to go there to visit my parents. My sister cooked a lovely birthday meal for us which was very special indeed. I wasn't really intending on getting any dolls this year unless something came up on my wish list - and I wasn't going to actively look for any. Well while having a browse on Evilbay for some American Girl dungarees - I am always hopeful some will become available in the UK, I saw Ivy Ling for sale and well as I have been wanting her for a long time AND she was in the UK I didn't hesitate and as such she is a belated birthday present to myself... The seller was local so I went and collected her this morning AND had a lovely chat with a fellow doll collector.

She didn't disappoint and I am delighted with her.
