waaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa- I’m typing up this post at for tomorrow ( well by the time you read this it will be Friday-lol). But I just got the BIGGEST surprise of my life earlier on!

NATHAN arrived!!! HE DID! And I knew absolutely nothing about it! hahaha.

My dear Best friend Deon had planned it with Nathan over the last two weeks and no one slipped up!! LOL,  He bought the plane ticket etc etc and had everything planned by asking us to be here on the weekend as he had a date that he would like to introduce us too- GOOD ONE DEON!

He sent me a message earlier today to say he would be home late for supper tonighy. So I “automatically” assumed he had gone out drinking with friends or had a date- BWHAHAHA. He was fetching my DS from the airport!

I was sitting at my PC working quietly and Wayne had gone to “watch TV” with his eyes closed- lol, and I saw this shadow behind me. I swung around thinking it was Deon coming to make shit after a few drinks like he always does, and there was Nathan sneaking up behind me with a “what you doing Mom”- OMG!! I hit him! BWWWAHAHAHA . I got such a fright at the sight of my dear boy that I hit him on his arm! He burst out laughing and I burst into tears. Then I hit Deon! lol.

THANK YOU my dear dear friend for the BEST surprise I have ever had. Love you TONS! So now you know why I am sitting here doing this now as tomorrow the first thing Nathan will say when he gets up is- What we doing Mom?- lol And can I tell you that I am sooooo looking forward to that moment and the rest of the weekend ;-)

As today is FRIDAY( hee hee, well it is after 12 now and I can type that now without confusing myself here-!haha) it’s NEW Release Day at Scrap Matters.

I haven’t had a CU Grab Bag out for a while but I have one today! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Everything has been Quality Checked and tested for your peace of mind.

WOOT- well I made it to the end without any more “blonde” moments- lol, but I must say my eye’s are now rather heavy and the fingers are not going as fast on the keyboard as normal! lol.

I hope you all have a stunning weekend, I know I am going to ;-)

Hugs and Loves

Your life certainly is not dull! LOL! Happy weekend and thanks for this super freebie. I hope I can make it work - not sure what a texture 'plate' is or whether it's just for the PS stable. No matter - it's the thought that counts.

Linda Walton aka bobbysgirlforever said...
