They're almost here.

My folks arrive tomorrow AM...really early...which is going to be tough for the night-owl Watson's. The alarm clocks are set, the house spotless....their room ready. We are all set for their 3 week visit...YAY!
They left SA to go back to the UK 13 months ago....so it is going to be wonderful to have them under our roof again. Max is SO excited...he spent half an hour before bedtime telling us how fast he was going to have his sleep & then wake up.....'Just like this Mama' & he closes his eyes, then whips them open 2 seconds later. He has a special relationship with his grandparents, even tho' they live continents away; thanks to the joy of skype technology. So it is going to be wonderful for them to spend some quality time with him.

Other than this exciting event, my life hasn't been very breathtakingly riveting lately. I am happy to report that I have scrapping tho'. I had a bit of a break last week to recover from the high speed scrapping I did to get my Cocoa Daisy DT stuff out and so it has been great to get back behind my scrapping table & focus on some page calls for CK. I had a blast doing them because most of the photo's I used were from our Canadian trip over December. Looking back at them made me realise just how much we LOVED it over there...*sigh* hopefully one of these days we will be able to call it home.

There is one little highlight I wanted to share with you, which came in the form of an unexpected email the other day. A mag, I have been fortunate to have been published in before, wants to publish one of my Fall L.O's for their September mag.....OMGoodness! I am so excited!! I can't say much more than that, as you know, but I will tell all a little closer to the time, OK!

Well guys thats all for now, please bear with me over the next couple of days...I will try & blog hopefully not too erratically, with juicy updates.
Gotta hit the sack early tonight...so nite-nite.
XXXXA parting pic....I vacuumed my car today & took Maxi's car chair out to do a thorough job...this is what I found behind it. About 1kg of old peanuts & raisins, pretzels & a large amount of indecipherable unknowns. Scary I tell you, scary!!!
