i'm grateful for . . . 'surprises'

Greetings all,
Another Saturday & another 'I'm grateful' celebration over at Maxabella Loves blog.
Short & sweet this week, to be honest, i still have the murmurs of my migraine, such is life when you can't really rest & recover with school holidays, children to feed & a business to run.
I've been a lucky girl to have surprises in my letter box this week . . .
 a pretty handmade heart from the gorgeous Elaine at Exquisite Acessories, she emailed to ask if she could send me one to say an extra special thanks for my contribution to her home state of Qld, for helping raise money for their flood relief.  Ah, thank you Elaine, i'm not alone either, she made & posted out a few of these delightful keepsakes. 
 Ever heard of the caution 'don't drink & dial/ text/ type' late at night & have no idea what you've done until the next day??  Well i don't drink but i do order fabric on line, late at night & then forget about it, until a parcel arrives a week later.  Glee, genuine surprise, fabric heart flutters!!  I've been making fabric & ribbon coin purses, in my simple-sewing-migraine-haze. 
 This gorgeous family member was a big surprise for the children at Easter 2008.  They grew up with a big German Shepherd named Jakob, this is our second.  It's Khan's 3rd birthday today.  If you happened to catch Bondi Vet & saw that German Shepherd puppy 'Honey' well, you can see why we will always have a German Shepherd in our lives.  He keeps us safe, patrolling the hallway at night, but loves a bit of comfort like 'sitting' on the back step!!  
Best surprise ever, my husband is coming home this weekend!!  Just for Saturday & Sunday, the children don't know, he only decided yesterday.  I can't wait, then we have a weekend together in February, then Easter!!  So you can imagine my excitement (like can't eat dinner i'm bursting with butterflies) so if i'm a bit blog-absent this weekend, forgive me.  Love Posie
