Surprises

Boy I love surprises and if it's long lost friends that surprise me, it's even better. Late last night I got a call from a late friend of mine's son. I haven't seen these young people since their mom's funeral. André phoned to tell me his dad is turning 50 this Saturday and to invite us to his surprise party. Gosh that's going to be so great, I haven't seen them in 3 years. They all moved to Botswana and have now returned to South Africa.

Then today I got a call from my friend Ermyn that lives in Cape Town. She usually comes to Johannesburg for Christmas and New Year, but she's coming early this year. Her daughter is getting married early in October and she's coming up to help with the wedding preparations. I just know we're going to have a few all night chat sessions. We usually have a whole year to catch up on and make a bed in my lounge and just chat away. I can't wait.

Then Corné my sweetie called this afternoon. His aunt that lives in Portugal is arriving tomorrow for a short holiday. WHEEEE, I love Elaine. She's loud and boisterous like me. The red wine will probably be flowing on Friday evening. She first has to go say hello to her family and then she's coming to stay the night with me before going to her kids in Angola.

So I feel like someone that has hit the jackpot. Oooh I can't wait.

OK so on to the next installment of the Flirty Flighty freebie. And Kristine, bring on those colour swatches. You know me, I'm stuck on blue.

Here's a preview of the elements.

You can get them here http://www.4shared.com/file/63238152/fb1a9d05/Flirty_Elements_1.html?dirPwdVerified=1524a939 and don't forget, the last bit will go up tomorrow.

Keep well and many hugs.
